Dear Parents,

Every Friday your child will be taking part in Special Writing (Y1-Y6). This will start next week.

During this time, the children practise their descriptive writing, grammar skills, and also learn new vocabulary- vocabulary being something that is so important for children to learn.

With this in mind, your child's class teacher has set up a 'Voice Your Vocab!' area on your child's Google Classroom for Classes 2 & 3. (For the children in Class 1, the picture will be sent home in their book bags.) You will find the image that your child will describe during their special writing that week. As a staff team, we think it would be great for you and your child to look at the picture and think of some fantastic vocabulary that they could use in their description. Can they test their teacher? Has their teacher heard of the word before? 

Let's get our children hooked on words!

Any questions, please just ask.

Thank you.
