|This half term we will continue to use our Talk For Writing model texts to help us read as a writer, including ‘The Papaya that Spoke,’ and cooking instructions from different cultural foods. Our class narrative is Roald Dahl’s ‘Danny Champion Of The World,’ and we will be studying ‘Poems Aloud’ by Joseph Coehelo.|
As we study these texts, the children will be practising their ability to retrieve key information from texts, use evidence to draw inferences about characters and use evidence to support their responses to questions.
|We will continue to use the Talk For Writing approach to help us write in a range of genres, including a ‘finding’ story, poetry and instructions. We will begin to punctuate speech correctly and use different conjunctions for time and cause. This will culminate in imitating the text’s structure, innovating our versions of its grammar and vocabulary before writing our own ‘Hot Task’.|
