We have been learning to write instructions, write an adventure story with a twist, based on Anthony Browne's 'The Tunnel. We are currently enjoying the story of Stig of the Dump. This links to the topic we are doing about the Stoneage.
We are continuing to develop sentence skills, by focussing on different sentence types and thinking about the impact these have on meaning.
The sentence types we have already introduced are:
2a, simile, double ly, De:De, 3ed, who/ which.
Ask your child about these. Even better - ask them to show you some examples in their reading books or write a sentence or two for you.
