English
In English, we will be exploring our class text, 'The Pirate Cruncher' and using it as a stimulus for some creative writing and poetry as well as producing non fiction texts linked to significant figures in piracy and newspaper reports. The children will be expected to continue progressing their joined handwriting and we will be focusing on applying spellings to our writing and editing and improving our work.
