•In English this first half-term we have focused on The Dark – a fabulous picture book by Lemony Snicket.
The children have shown great engagement during lessons, producing brilliant poems, messages of advice to characters, story maps and have also re-written the story though a different perspective.
We will finish this English unit by writing instructions on how to make a glow in the dark lamp – so we are not in the dark!
•We will continue our topic about the dark by learning about nocturnal animals, linking our learning to the Science strand on animals and their habitats.
SPAG (Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation):
We have been reviewing nouns, verbs, adjectives, capital letters and full stops.
As part of instruction writing the children have used imperative verbs (to give orders).
