Non-fiction needs some TLC. There are persuasive texts, autobiographies, diaries and journals, poetry, manuals and reference books. Have a look at home, at school and in the library and see what amazing facts you can learn!

Homework due 13th March 2019

Reading

Next week Year 4 will be looking at poetry! So why not give poetry a try at home? There are lots of different types of poetry to explore, and some of it is so funny, you might even fall off your chair! 🙂

Recommended Read: ‘Michael Rosen’s Book of Very Silly Poems.’

If poetry isn’t your thing, then pick up a magazine, a scary story or a tale of a fantasy land. Either way, read, enjoy and comment in your diaries.
