In class they will be discussing their Learning Intentions.
Recently we have been working towards Adding descriptive language to our writing. We will know we have achieved this when we have used metaphors in our writing.

Prompt your child to use these prompts also. Use them wherever you are and whatever you are doing, whether reading a book or driving in the car.
