This term in English we will look at traditional and fairy tales. Children will be encouraged to discuss the common themes and characters that occur in these texts and join in with repeated language. They will plan and write a traditional tale using familiar elements.
We will then look at information texts, caring for animals, leaflets etc. We will read a range of non-fiction texts and talk about how they differ from fiction. Children will then create their own information text to be informative and eye-catching.
We will continue to learn about punctuation and grammar and how to include these within our writing and how they help to shape the books we read.
We provide children with weekly spellings to learn at home and this learning is then reinforced as words are revisited throughout the year during English lessons and discreet spelling sessions.
The Common Exception words for both Year One and Year Two are available for all children to access in class everyday and they encouraged to use the working walls to help them with all aspects of the English work.
