Week 3 - 16th - 20th November
This week in Literacy, we will be looking at the fabulous picture book 'Flotsam' by David Wiesner. We will learn that the term 'flotsam' refers to objects that have been washed up from a shipwreck. We will then look at some of the flotsam gathered by the young boy and make predictions as to whom the items belong. After the boy has discovered the camera, we will write statement sentences predicting what we believe the boy has seen in the developed photos. We will then continue to explore our story and discover the developed photos from the underwater camera. We will use adjectives to describe what we see in the photos and write statement sentences about these e.g. A blue octopus is sitting on a flowery sofa.
For all of our writing we will focus on the sounds we can hear in each word and use our phonic knowledge to write them down. We will also think about using finger spaces between each word and ending our sentences with full stops.

Week 2 - 9th - 13th Nov
This week in Literacy, we will be reading 'At the beach; postcards from Crabby Spit', by Roland Harvey.
We will be using our geography knowledge to discuss what we might find at the beach. We will learn what a statement sentence is, then write statement sentences for things we can see at 'Crabby Spit'. We will then think about postcards; what they are, who writes them, when they are written and what they tell us. At the end of the week, we will be writing our own postcards from the beach. For all of our writing, we will focus on the sounds we can hear in each word and use our phonic knowledge to write them down. We will also think about using finger spaces between each word in our sentences.
