    We will be reading There’s a boy in the Girls’ Bathroom by Louis Sachar. Through this text we will practice writing in the ‘voice’ of a character.

    We will continue to improve our SPaG knowledge, skills and understanding, in particular consolidating knowledge of word classes and beginning to learn about Reported Speech.
