Spring Term 1


Man on the Moon!



During this 'lockdown' period, our English learning journey will still continue to focus on a text linked to our topic this half term...SPACE! This text is 'Man on the Moon...Bob!' 


In English we will be:

  • Consolidating SPAG skills learnt last half term - CL  .  !  ?  conjunctions and tenses,
  • Forming nouns using suffixes such as -ness / -er
  • Forming adjectives using suffixes such as -ful / -ness
  • Use expanded noun phrases for description,
  • Identify commas in lists.


Children will apply all these skills to a range of writing outcomes, for example, a character description on Bob, a postcard written as a tourist visiting the moon and creating a poster advertising for a friend!


Phonics and handwriting activities will continue to be set daily to help support children's development.
