English

In English our main text will be The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch by Ronda and David Armitage.

You can listen to the story here.

We will be using this story as we continue to focus on using capital letters, full stops, question marks and exclamation marks.  We will also be developing our ability to leave finger spaces, use our phonetic knowledge and form a neat cursive handwriting style.

This story will allow us to practise describing characters and places, using adjectives and connectives to add interest to our sentences.
