ENGLISH

In English this half-term we will be focusing on the book 'Bill's New Frock' by Anne Fine and writing our own versions of the story.  We will then write explanation texts based on our science topic 'Forces & Magnets'. Later in the term, we will be reading poetry and writing our own. We will also have spelling lessons throughout the week.
