WELCOME TO OPAL
This half term will be our literacy based topic with the theme of funfairs. Our writing genres will be based on newspaper reports and fictional stories. The newspaper report will be based on an historic tragedy based at Battersea funfair where a rollercoaster crashed and the stories will be based on funfair mysteries. We will be able to really develop writing skills such as noun phrases, parenthesis and writing for different purposes.
