In English our focus will be the key skills needed in Year 1 and 2 - these will include handwriting, spellings of everyday words and using capital letters and full stops in the correct place.  We will also be developing our stamina for writing when completing longer writing tasks and also looking at some non-fiction texts.

We will be looking at a great range of books and especially at dragon stories.
