Term 3

We have produced 'Knowledge Organisers' for some of our projects this term.  You can find the links to them below. 

Please use these to revise key knowledge with your children at home.



In English, we will begin the term by revising some of our prior learning. We will focus on sentence structure (including simple, compound and complex sentence structures) and word classes. 


We will then begin a narrative unit focussing on creating dialogue to advance the action. We will create our own adventurous characters. 



Finally, we will finish the term with a non-fiction topic of biographies.
