Literacy

 

In Literacy, we are learning about characters and settings which are used to open stories. We are reading Stig of the Dump. The children are going to be writing their own adventure story developing their own characters and setting. They will develop their writing by using a variety of subordinating conjunctions. For example: Because, When, If with the use of commas to create complex sentences. In addition, they will be using fronted adverbials and noun phrases to describe characters and settings. 

 

Ask your child to tell you the events of the story.
