Writing to Entertain - from Little Red Riding Hood we will cover character and setting descriptions and use paragraphs to organise writing. The aspects of grammar - expanded noun phrases conjunctions, prepositions and inverted commas -  will be taught in these lessons.

Grammar taught will be fronted adverbials, noun phrases, conjunctions and prepositions. Punctuation covered will be capital letters for proper nouns, inverted commas, bullet points for lists and using commas after fronted adverbials.
