Our Classes and Teachers 

Attenborough Class - Miss Booth 

Earle Class - Mrs Cooke 

English - Talk for Writing

We use talk for writing in English to teach writing, using various fiction and non-fiction texts. This process goes through several stages, enabling children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic orally, before reading and analysing it, and then writing their own version. 

 

Our texts for the Autumn term are :

Tree Giants - Non Chronological Report

Poppy, Waldo and the Giant - Meeting Tale 

How to Trap a Stone Giant - Instructions 

 

English - Reading

We use VIPERS in reading lessons and our current book is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis.

Please use this document when you read with your children at home.
