Our second ‘Talk 4 Writing’ story of the year is ‘Little Charlie’. In this story Charlie makes a journey to visit his grandmother, and he meets some interesting characters along the way. This story links with our over-arching topic of why do we make journeys. Through our Literacy the children will explore writing their own journey tales based on Little Charlie, whilst focusing on how to describe the settings.
For our non-fiction strand of Literacy, the children will be exploring writing a diary or recount of the journey to Earl Shilton that we shall be making later this half term. This links to our Geography topic on ‘Our School’ this half term, which also covers the local area.
