In our reading and English lessons, we will be focussing on the book 'Private Peaceful' by Michael Morpurgo, a story of a young boy looking back on his life in the trenches of World War 1 in France. Using this book as a focus, we will be using it to guide us through our English genres, creating narratives, setting descriptions, character descriptions and writing our own diary entries.


When creating a big write, the children are always introduced to a WAGOLL (What A Good One Looks Like) to show them what a good piece of writing should look like. Every lesson then focuses on a particular skill, this could be a reading, spelling, punctuation or grammar  that will inform their writing to create a big write at the end of the genre!
