Thorpe Lea Primary School

'A dedicated community working together, nurturing a safe, happy school where all children can achieve their potential'


Literacy is an exciting subject and is one that I thoroughly enjoy teaching. I like to make Literacy and engaging and interactive as possible, often incorporating drama, music and art into our daily lessons. This term the children will be basing their independent writing on the popular book 'The Dragonsitter.' Using this book they will be learning how to write for a variety of purposes, such as: information posters, newspaper reports, setting and character descriptions as well as informal letters.

Week 1: Writing a character description

Week 2: Information poster

Week 3: Writing a letter

Week 4: Newspaper report

Week 5: Narrative
