We have decided to move away from the Read, Write, Inc based literacy lessons and instead have a 15 minute focused Phonics/Read, Write, Inc lesson, which will sometimes focus on handwriting instead. The class will then come together as a whole for English.

We will have a book that will be our focus book ; for example, at the moment we are looking at ‘The Tiger That Came to Tea’ and discussing our favourite parts in the story and the characters that we have met. We then create our own stories that are similar to our focus story, using as much of our imagination as possible!

I am hoping we will finish the year with some extraordinary story tellers!
