English
In English, we will be using Roald Dahl’s famous book, ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ to engage us in our writing. We will use it as a stimulus when creating captivating stories, thought-provoking diary entries and amusing instructions. Across all areas of writing, there will be a large focus on grammar, punctuation and spelling. We will also be placing a large emphasis on vocabulary choices so get ready to use your dictionaries and thesauruses!
