WELCOME TO DIAMOND CLASS

During Spring 2, the children will learn how to write a narrative, based around superheroes! We will focus on three key texts, to inspire our ideas for writing and to explore the life of a superhero! Whilst doing this, there will be lots of drama and roleplay to deepen our understanding and immerse us into the stories. We will learn how to plan and sequence our writing, alongside describing key characters, and detailing events to keep our readers on the edge of their seats!
