We have written some super free verse poems, using personification to bring the weather alive! In imaginative writing, we are developing our characterisation skills. We will also be writing discussion texts, some of which will be linked to the fascinating issues around the use of renewable and non-renewable energy in Scotland today.
This term our reading strategy focus is inferring, summarising and paraphrasing and self-questioning, using a variety of texts including our reading books, First News and texts linked to our current Environmental Issues interdisciplinary focus.
In listening and talking, we will be focusing on our presentation skills when presenting on Environmental Issues and also on aspects of French culture.
