In English, we will be using The Iron Man by Ted Hughes as a stimulus to engage us in our writing. We will use this story to create imaginative, descriptive writing, interesting instructions, eye-catching newspaper reports and persuasive writing. Across all areas of writing we will continue to focus on grammar, punctuation and spelling. We will be focusing on improving our work through using a thesaurus and practicing spelling key topic words.
