In English, this half-term, we will be focussing a lot on grammar; in particular word classes, clauses and phrases. We will use this learning to give ourselves a solid platform upon which to build up our writing so that we are including lots of relevant, well-chosen detail and varying our sentence structures so that we are better able to engage our audience. We will introduce the new concept of relative clauses and relative pronouns and practise using these in standalone lessons before trying to include them in our longer pieces of writing. 


We will be writing a newspaper report based on an event that appears in the news during the next few weeks and we will also be writing a setting description, letter from a character's viewpoint and a missing chapter from our class reading book, Philip Pullman's The Firework Maker's Daughter.
