This term we will be reading a range of fiction and non-fiction books. We will be linking our writing to our texts.

This term, the children will be reading and exploring stories containing humour. We will read a range of stories that look at the properties of humorous stories including Mr Stink by David Walliams. We will then write our own story using the skills we have learned.
