‘Growing in love, in the spirit of Christ, for the benefit of all’


Currently, we are working on writing an adventure story, based on 'The Very Last Castle'.  We will be learning how to write using expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials and coordinating conjunctions. We will also be looking at using onomatopoeia! 





Our first text will be a persuasive text where we will be writing a letter persuading the Fairy Tale Council to remove the troll from under the bridge, allowing the Billy Goats to cross safely.
