In English, we will be examining the fantastic superhero book, 'Bungleman'. We will use this engaging story to inspire our own brilliant writing. Look out as we describe characters and create our own exciting chapters about the clumsy hero. As we write, we will focus on using a range of adventurous vocabulary; incorporating conjunctions; using apostrophes and using a range of sentence types. Be prepared to be impressed!
