Each half term we base our learning on a different core text from the Read in to Writing/LiteracyShed + curriculum. Each book relates to our termly topic and allows the children to delve into high-quailty picture books and children's fiction written by much-loved authors such as Cressida Cowell and J.K Rowling to achieve greater depth in reading and writing. 

Writing Targets

Writing Targets:

This year, each child will have their own ‘Target Passport’. We will be plotting small step targets along their pathway (pictured above), providing the children a direction for their writing and achievements to be recognised and celebrated. Please read the document below for an example of some of the objectives your children will be working on.

Author’s Note Books:

In Oak Class, each child has their own ‘Author’s Note Book’. These note books scaffold each individual’s learning providing prompts, ideas and inspiration to kick start their writing. They also act as a guide and contain help sheets for their own writing targets. The children add their own vocabulary they have discovered throughout the year.
