This term our learning in English lessons will centre around the book...
This beautifully illustrated book will provide many opportunities for us to discuss our responsibly to look after and care for the environment. The book is set on a beach in Jamaica and links to our geographical location of a coastal town. In our English lessons, we will first be getting to grips with the three essential components of a sentence; capital letter, finger spaces and punctuation before looking at ways to enhance our writing with noun phrases and conjunctions. We will be applying all these skills when sequencing and retelling the story. Inspired by this book and our Geography unit this term, we have planned a trip to the beach! After our exciting trip to the beach, we will be writing a recount to tell you all about it! We will also be looking at another book by the same author ‘Look Up’. As well as the fictional ‘driver texts’, the children will explore a range of non-fiction and poetry.
Handwriting is really important for making us proud of our work and helping to remember spelling. Here is the handwriting policy in case you would like to do any practise at home.
