This half term in English we will be looking at stories from other cultures. Our main text will be 'The most beautiful thing in the world', a folktale from China. We will be reading and adapting the text to make our own stories.


We will continue to practise spellings in class and learn about other aspects of punctuation and grammar.



At Whitwell we aim for all our children to become fluent, confident readers who are passionate about reading.

Children who read regularly or are read to regularly have the opportunity to open the doors to so many different worlds! More importantly, reading will give your child the tools to become independent life-long learners.

We can achieve this together through:

  • Read Write Inc, a program to help to your child read at school
  • Encouraging children to develop a love of books by reading to them daily, at home and at school
  • Giving children access to a wide range of books at school and at home
