For the first few weeks of the autumn term we will be watching the BBC's Look and Read programme Sky Hunter. Although old and a bit outdated in its presentation it does provide many good writing opportunities and lots of basic grammar work. The class have seen episodes one, two and three. This weeks work is based on episode four.
The series can be found else where and it is tempting to let your child watch the series in advance. This however spoils many activities in which the children try to predict the plot or assess the character so far. Stretching the imagination is good for creative writing.
