This term we have been using the above texts for our English work.  We used the Jungle Book as a basis for our work on Classic fiction and then moved on to looking at Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories when we moved into the writing phase.  We have also used the poem, 'The Walrus and the Carpenter' by Lewis Carroll to show our understanding of the features of a poem.

We are currently learning about biographies and autobiographies in English.  Use this website to find out more about Roald Dahl.


We have been talking about places in the locality and our journey to school
