This term, we are reading and acquiring the inspiration for our writing from the wonderfully exhilarating adventure story: Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We are focusing in particular on writing balanced arguments, formal letters, detailed setting descriptions and our very own adventure stories.
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, please encourage your child to try and apply them in their writing. You could even start collecting some of these WOW words in a notebook so that you don't forget them!
