Children will be encouraged to aspire to be like our school captains: resilience, reflective, resourceful and reciprocal. We will be instilling this during our leaning to learn weeks at the start of term. Each week children will be set a target based around one of our captains and we will be looking out for these behaviors during the week.
This term in English will be looking at producing a persuasive brochure to entice passengers aboard The Titanic – using persuasive features and language.
We will also be writing postcards from on-board the ship as well as writing newspaper reports about the fatal crash.
Children will have weekly practice of their reading and SPaG skills also.
