In descriptive writing, the children will be encouraged to use adjectives to explain what was seen, felt or heard. They will be learning how to carefully  choose words and phrasing, making it seem real.  Following on from this, the children will be writing to the Prime Minster to discuss Climate Change. I wonder if we will get a reply. We will keep you posted!

Reading


At Pocklington Infant school we feel that reading is an important aspect to your child's education. We encourage children to love books, reading and sharing stories together. Research shows that reading at home as little as 5 minutes a day can dramatically improve a child's reading ability. 


Your child will bring home a reading book every week to share with you. As well as reading the book it will give you the chance to enhance their knowledge of the red tricky words and the speedy green words.


We also welcome the chance to have volunteers come into school to hear our children read. Come and speak to either Mrs Moore or Mrs Matthews if you feel this would be something for you!
