English
In our English lessons we will be working hard to create our own novels! We will be focusing on our descriptive writing to develop settings, characters and plots. Our class book 'Cliffhanger' will support this writing and will serve as a model for our own fiction book. We will write an information text and a persuasive letter! Our GPVS work on various word types will continue, as will the inclusion of such in our extended piece of writing.
