Our topic this term is 'Marvellous Medicine and Terrible Trenches'.
In fiction texts, we will be learning key features of traditional tales, by reading 'The Pied Piper of Hamelin' by Micheal Murpurgo and in non-fiction texts we will be writing our own instructions for some marvellous medicines by reading the story 'George's Marvellous Medicine' by Roald Dahl. We will also be focusing on Remembrance to write poetry using poems from local poets as inspiration.
