This term, our topic is based around the World Wars and lots of our writing will be inspired by this. We will be writing reports about the use of horses in World War One, creating narrative pieces that will aim to evoke emotion in the reader, and learning about the Maori ceremonial war dance, The Haka, which will give us the opportunity to develop our instructional writing.
We will also be developing our description of character, setting and atmosphere through using the 'show not tell' approach. The children will be encouraged to use a range of high-level vocabulary and will start to experiment with a much wider range of punctuation. If you come across any WOW vocabulary whilst you are reading together at home, encourage your child to try and apply this in their writing.
