We LOVE writing at Mab Lane! We have English lessons every day, which involve reading and writing, and we also have SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) lessons in the morning. We learn how to write in lots of different genres such as stories, recounts, explanations, newspaper reports and play scripts. Each year, every class completes a unit called A Tale Unfolds, where we write, direct and star in our very own movie! This is everyone's favourite English topic!
This half term, Year One are learning all about information texts. Year Two are lucky enough to be writing and filming their own movie: El Dorado, the Lost City of Gold! Year Three have just finished an exciting unit on mystery stories, and are about to start learning about a fantastic author called Dick King Smith - the first story they're reading is called The Hodgeheg. Year Four are learning about stories from other cultures - they've had lots of fun making dreamcatchers already, and are now working on their own version of Anansi and the Turtle. Year Five have just started reading The Hobbit as part of their topic on older literature. Finally, Year Six are working on action stories, all focused around a very exciting book called Stormbreaker. This week they have written job applications for MI6 and invented their own spy gadgets!
