Autumn Term

This term, we will be creating our own narratives based around our class book 'The Hodgeheg' by Dick King Smith. We will practise writing setting descriptions and extracts of dialogue based on the text before finally re-writing the story from Max’s point of view in the form of a diary entry. We will be focussing on noun phrases, prepositions, conjunctions and inverted commas (fear not – it sounds much more complicated than it actually is!) After the half term, we will be writing non-chronological reports about our topic ‘The Kingdom of Benin’.

Spring Term

This term, as part of our Conservation topic, Peregrine class will be exploring the text ‘The Journey Home’, a story about animals who have lost their habitat and are searching for a new home. Along the way we will be writing character descriptions, setting descriptions and poetry before planning and writing our own versions of the story. During the first half term we will be focussing on expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials and thinking carefully about our reader and what we want them to feel. After half term we will be writing non-chronological reports about endangered animals and looking at ‘The Lorax’ text to inspire a persuasive letter about deforestation.
