Spring Term 1
This half term, Year 6 will be focussing on an incredible book by Michael Morpurgo called War Horse.
In Writing, we are writing a non-chronological report all about 'Horses' and how they were used and treated throughout World War 1. Then, we are going to write a persuasive letter as Albert (Joey's companion in War Horse) trying to persuade the army not to take his beloved friend to help on the front line.
This term, Year 6 Hall are looking at a fantastic book called Outlaw by Michael Morpurgo.
First, we are delving into setting descriptions and are trying to use adventurous vocabulary to bring a setting to life!
Next, we are focussing on narrative writing. We will look deeply at the purpose and audience for this style of writing before completing the following learning outcomes: character descriptions and a retell of Robin Hood and the Golden Arrow.
Our class learning focus is word class and sentence types. There are some great links below to help you and your child.
