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 how to write instructions. Year Two and Year One/Two are both learning all about information texts. Year Three are writing explanations, which will fit in with their exciting Geography topic about volcanoes. Year Four are studying stories with historical settings, and Year Five are lucky enough to be writing and filming their own movie: El Dorado, the Lost City of Gold! Finally, Year Six are studying Norse myths - they have read lots, explored the storylines, settings and characters through Talk for Writing opportunities and now they are ready to write their own!
