Children will take part in whole class reading, where we explore a book together to learn key comprehension skills. We will start by reading Charlotte's Web this half term. Our writing focus will be a narrative that links in with the Ancient Egyptians. The title of the book is 'Stories from Ancient Egypt'. After the half term break, the class will begin to create a play script and explore spring poetry.

Children in Year 3 will be taught by me (Mr Plant) and Mrs Davidson. Children in Year 4 will be taught by Mrs Ramsell.
