This week, In English, we will be looking at how we can write about one thing but in three different text types. These will be to inform, entertain and persuade, each text type will also be limited to 100 words, so the children will need to consider their word choice carefully.  Throughout the week we will be developing our understanding of the Easter story with a particular focus on the importance of 'The Last Supper'.  We will also be having PE on Tuesday morning.
