English
In English we will be focusing our learning around 'Traditional Tales'. We will look at what features they have, as well as writing descriptions and our very own traditional tale. We will continue to look at how we can form incredible sentences, including amazing vocabulary, full stops and capital letters.
We will also use our letter-writing skills to write a letter to Sheffield City Council.
