English
In English this term we will be continuing to develop our writing skills over a range of genres. We will be looking into our futures and deciding what we might like to do with our lives. We will write letters to our future selves, write auto-biographies as our future selves and write poetry which conveys emotion.
In reading, we will link to our poetry theme by thinking about the author's/poet's use of language.
