In English this half-term, we will be reading The Giant's Necklace by Michael Morpurgo.
Through this short story, the children will be developing their skills of retrieval, summarising and inference, whilst being able to locate evidence to support their claims. The children will be doing a variety of writing tasks, such as formal letters, character descriptions and narratives. Through writing the children will also develop their understanding of commas, dashes and brackets to add additional information. Spelling will be an enormous focus, particularly spelling rules such as ible/able, ent/ant and ie/ei.
The children built some amazing momentum last half-term in achieving their spelling badges - we were blown away! We hope this continues into the new year!
