We will spend two weeks of this half term on each of the books above. We will use these stories and texts as inspiration for our own independent writing.                                                  

SPAG - Spellings will be continued to be tested on a Friday and for this term, we will be looking at the Year 3 spelling words. For our discrete grammar lessons, we will be looking at aspects of our writing which are missing on a weekly basis and concentrating on how we can include grammatical features to improve our writing. Some of these features may include; different word types, fronted adverbials, time conjunctions, subordinate clauses and using adverbs for description. We will also be looking at our dictionary skills and our word choices.
