We will be finding out lots about this topic in our afternoon sessions, but it will also link to our Literacy and Numeracy.
Literacy - Interrogating and retelling the story of The King of the Tiny Things. We will be finding out about this magical creature and writing adventure stories about him. Our grammar focus will continue to be capital letters and full stops but we will also look at using connectives to extend and improve our sentences.
