English
Our class book this half term is ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl. We will create our own play scripts based on our class novel and use drama to think about how the characters feel at different parts of the story. In our English lessons we will also write diary entries and letters as characters from our book. We will focus on using the correct punctuation in our writing and using a dictionary and thesaurus to help us.
