In English this term we are focusing on the text 'The Tin Forest' by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson. We will be exploring this text, using prediction and inference to develop our understanding of the text. During our Reading sessions we will be focusing on retrieving information, specifically looking at retrieving key words or phrases.
Our Reading sessions directly link into our writing sessions and feed our understanding of the genre features, language techniques and text structure. Once the children have a good understanding of these areas we will then teach children how to use adjectives and adverbs to create impact as well as introduce adverbial phrases. All the skills taught will then be used to write a setting description.
