This week in Literacy we will be looking at books that involve animals from the zoo, in anticipation of our upcoming Year 1 trip. We will be using adjectives to describe how animals look and think about how they behave and move. We will be focussing on making sure that our sentences make sense and that they are punctuated properly with capital letters, lowercase letters , finger spaces and full stops. We will also be thinking about when to use questions marks and exclamation marks.
