Autumn 2 

 

Week 1 and 2 

The children have started to look at the book The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. They have predicted what they think might happen in the story using the front cover. We have focused on expanded noun phrases and similes, that we can use in our writing to create a setting description.

Autumn 1

 

Week 1 and 2 

We have learning all about instructions, what we might need instructions for and how we would write a set of instructions. The children have focused on using bossy words (imperative verbs), time conjunctions and adverbs in their writing. 

 

In spelling the children are practicing the prefixes dis and in and are getting into the spelling zone! In reading comprehension we have been answering the big questions. Should we always trust what our friends tell us? Should we ever play tricks on our friends or family? The texts Chicken-Licken and Anansi and the Bananas have supported us to think about these questionS. 

Week 3 and 4 

 

We have continued to focus on instructions and the children have written their own instructions on how to make stone age shoes. We turned our instructions into a handy booklet. Following on from this we have been learning about narrative in the third person and the story structure of 'The Stone Age Boy'. The children have written their own setting, problem and resolution inspired by this story. 

 

In SPaG the children have been concentrating on paragraphs, what they are used for and how we can order our writing by using them. 

Week 5 and 6 

We have been learning about third person narrative and that this is the story being told by someone outside the story like a narrator. The children have focused on pro nouns and how we can swop these for nouns in our narrative. The children ended the term writing a story inspired by the Stone Age Boy in the third person independently.
