Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy


Writing to Entertain

We will be writing to entertain this term and will begin with writing instructions, these will be unusual instructions and may include writing instructions to make a magic potion. We will then be writing a third person Narrative that will also be entertaining to the reader. In order to be successful we will be using all of our SPaG skills, such as: cohesion within paragraphs, using perfect tense and progressive tense. Children will then be able to present and publish their work so that they see the end results.
