Our English work will be closely linked to our theme too. Through our school text we will be thinking about the seasons. Our book 'Winter's Child' by Angela McAllister will allow us to explore the characteristics of winter and then create a similar story set in the spring. We will be using the similarities and differences between the 2 seasons to help create our stories and make them interesting and descriptive to the reader. This term we will also be exploring the book 'Varmints' by Helen Ward. Through this narrative we will investigate different types of setting and think about the similarities and differences between the book and animation of the story.
