Literacy

In our reading, we will be continue to improve our reading out loud and fluency. We will develop our vocabulary by looking at new words in our reading and matching them to meanings. We will look at what characters say and do and what that tells us about their feelings. We will also compare books to other we have read, looking at what is the same and what is different.

In writing, we will continue to develop our handwriting with many children beginning to join their letters. We will learn more spelling rules to use in our writing. We will write information texts and our own stories using the ones we read together in class.
