For our writing, we are looking at ‘where the wild things are,’ by Maurice Sendrak.

Our Key text for Autumn 1 will be ‘Where the wild things are’. The children will use the Talk for writing approach to learn the story. They will learnt to make predictions about what is going to happen, use adjectives to describe the characters, create freeze frames based on what they have read and write their own story by changing the characters.
