This half term, we will be looking at the narrative, Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg. This story is accompanied by beautiful illustrations, which we will be making the most of. To begin the unit, we will be exploring the orgainsation devices of newspaper articles (subheadings, headlines, written in columns, photos with captions), and using these to report on an animal escape! We will then be looking at the skill of paragraphing to continue the narrative, make predictions and write a suitable ending to the narrative. Throughout the unit, we will be making reference to the 1995 film, Jumanji starring Robin Williams.

Literacy: Mastery Targets – Spring 2

  • I can use paragraphs to group my ideas.
  • I can use organisational devices such as sub-headings, headlines, captions.

My on-going targets are:

  • I can use fronted adverbials to add interest to the beginning of my sentences.
  • I can use a new line when each character speaks and “” to show dialogue.
  • I can use apostrophes correctly to show possession. 
  • I can re-read and edit my full stops and capital letters independently.
