English
During this term we will be looking at non-chronological reports and how they are structured and then applying this when writing our own. We will also be reading the book 'Viking Boy' by Tony Bradman and basing much of our writing around that: taking on the role of Gunnar the son of the Viking chief, writing setting/character descriptions and re-writing parts of the story using our own imaginations.
