Psalms 95:2


English; Writing

In Gandhi Class we use the 'Talk for Writing' approach which helps us to write by first learning to retell a text out loud, we use story maps and actions to help us with this. Then we can start to write our own individual versions of the text, using our knowledge and imaginations to innovate with our own choices.


We will be working on our spelling skills, recapping our knowledge of phonics from Potter Class and of the 'tricky' words we need to know. Gandhi Class are tested on their spellings weekly.
