This half term we will be looking at the life of Sir David Attenborough and how he has influenced the way we look at the environment, we will be doing this through looking at the history of our own area and contrasting that with that of other countries outside Europe. We will be using and developing our computer skills to research Sir David Attenborough. We will also be looking at the weather and how it changes throughout the year and in different parts of the world.
We will be using the books to help us improve our writing, we will be continuing to work on all the skills we need to become better writers like; our handwriting, capital letters, full stops and commas, writing great descriptive stories using noun phrases, adjectives and verbs. Through visual stimulus, practical sessions, role-play we will continue to strive to be the best writers that we can be.
We will also be concentrating on improving our reading skills, not only reading the words fluently which is important but also improving our inference, and prediction skills which will help with our journey through school.
