It can be difficult to remember all the neessary features needed for different genres, so here is a Writing genre checklist to help!

Reading 

Our Power of Reading test for this term are- FLoodland, Wonder and the London Eye Mystery. We will be doing many exciting things that are linked to our texts. Such as- Writing, drama, artwork and dance.

We encourage the children to read a wide variety of genres. We complete reading journal activities for every book we read. These tasks help us to develop our understanding of the text.
