This half term we will be continuing to focus on the features of a sentence. We will be using descriptive language to describe settings and characters. We will be consolidating and learning new time conjunctions to write for different purposes. We will be introduced to the exclamation mark and learn how to use it in our writing.
We are currently teaching phase 5. We will also be practicing pseudo words (real / fake words).
