We will also be working on various Writing and Reading skills alongside this in English such as finger spaces, capital letters and full stops and exclamation marks. We will be using sounds and words to write sentences and linked sentences. We will read texts linking with the past or finding out information about the past. We will also enjoy some Poetry.
