Summer Term Literacy - We are going to be exploring a variety of different topics in Literacy. We will be looking instructions and explanation texts, how they are formed and have a go at writing some of our own. we will be continuing to explore poetry this half term, with a specific focus on animal poetry. Continuing our animal theme, we will study the story of 'The Hodgeheg' and really draw on the structure of the story. We will complete our literacy topic with some plays and dialogue and then we will have a go at writing some of our own.
