In English, we have been focusing on creating characters for our fantasy stories. We will begin writing our stories and focus on editing our own and our peers’ work next week.


Your child should continue to complete a minimum of three reads each week, reading aloud with an adult, which must be recorded in the yellow reading log book and handed into the class teacher.
