Literacy

 Spring 1 

 

This half term in Literacy, we will be looking at the poem 'The Owl and the Pussy-Cat' by Edward Lear, exploring the language used and even making up our own nonsense words. 

Alongside this, we will be writing instructions, exploring poems, writing informal letters and recounts from personal experiences. 

Autumn 2

So far in our reading lessons this half term we have been we have been using the book, 'Where the Wild Things Are' by Maurice Sendak. We have been exploring word choices, sequencing events and using inference.

In our writing lessons this half term, we have focused on describing story settings and writing poetry, using adjective linked to our five senses.

Our very own Wild Things

Autumn 1

In Literacy this half term we are using the books 'Handa's Surprise' by

Eileen Browne and 'Diary of a Wombat' by Jackie French. We are exploring adjectives and verbs, as well as the connection to continents, countries and the animals that live there. 

 

We are then moving onto looking at non-fiction texts about some of the magnificent animals from across the seven continents. We are exploring the features of non-fiction texts, having a go at writing a fact file of our own about tigers and then writing about some of the other animals we enjoy reading about!

 

 

5th October 2021

After reading 'Diary of a Wombat', and finding out some interesting facts about them (such as they shape their poo into cubes so that the poo does not roll away and other animals then invade their territory), we created our own dens and became wombats!

Literacy 11th October

We have been writing a fact file about tigers! Did you know that tigers are very good swimmers?  And they have striped skin as well as striped fur?
We then transformed into tigers and made our own habitats.

Beware of the Tigers!
