Literacy

This half term we will be learning to write a story with a familiar setting. We will be reading PEACE AT LAST.

The children will be changing the story with their own characters and writing a new story. Peace at Last By Jill Murphy

 

Can they write a story at home about a familiar place?

Have they remembered to use capital letters and full stops?

Have they used any conjunctions to join their sentences? (and, but, or, so)
