This term we are studying stories with dilemmas, persuasive texts and explanation texts.
We are starting by creating our own story with a dilemma based on the book 'A matter or Loaf and Death.'
We have been writing newspaper articles based on the BFG and studying what features should be included.
Have a look in your child's English book on parents evening to show what a budding journalist they are becoming.
During our first half term we will be looking at fairy tales. We will be analysing and discussing themes. We will then create our own fairy tale based on Hansel and Gretel.
We will then be looking at writing our own newspaper report based on the BFG. Over the weeks we will be reading and developing an understanding of how newspaper reports are written, who they are aimed at and why.
