Year 6 English in Autumn 1

In the first term the children will be following sequences based on:

The Promise by Nicola Davies - Learning outcome is to write a diary extract from the characters perspective

The Ice Bear by Jackie Morris - Learning outcome is to write a story following similar text structures as the author Jackie Morris.


Over this term the children will spend time to familiarise themselves with the texts, immersing themselves with activities based around the text and developing understanding of the choices made by the authors.


Over the duration of these sequences the children will use dictionaries and thesauruses to check spellings and meanings of words as well as to modify their language and use more effective vocabulary. The children will be taught to use: adjectives, verbs, expanded noun phrases, paragraphs and a variety of sentences (structures and clauses) so that they can write effectively and learn to show, not tell descriptions.
