In the second half term we will be looking at information texts- through this we will be creating our own newspaper reports and biographies looking at the Anglo Saxons and Vikings; linking this to our topic. We will also be looking at how we can determine what parts of information is useful and what is not. We will then look at using a thesaurus and a dictionary properly to enhance our writing skills.
