As in Maths, our English lessons revolve around a 'Writing Cycle'. This means that the children are now able to watch their writing progress before their very eyes! Each time a new topic or focus text is covered, children's lessons involve practising and applying the necessary skills needed in order to become fluent, creative and confident writers.
Our focus text for the Spring half term is: The Explorer by Katherine Rundell
About this text:
When their plane crashes, four children are stranded in the Amazon jungle. Now they have to survive alone. But was someone there before them?
The Year 4 children will read and explore this fiction text, alongside examples of non-fiction recounts. They will identify and imitate the punctuation, tense, structure and style used, before creating their own recounts.
