## Literacy - April - June 2024

**Literacy: **

Reading

Know how to access and use a range of resources to find information.

Know and understand the purposes of a persuasive text.

Evaluate advertisements as a form of persuasive writing for their impact, appeal and honesty, focusing in particular on how information about the product is presented: exaggerated claims, tactics for grabbing attention, linguistic devices, e.g. puns, jingles, alliteration, invented words

Writing

Summarise in writing the key ideas from a paragraph or chapter.

Improve the cohesion of written texts by organising information into paragraphs.

Write poetry based on the structure and style of poems read.

Design an advertisement, such as a poster or radio jingle on paper or screen, e.g. for a school fete or an imaginary product, making use of linguistic and other features learnt from reading examples.

Choose and combine words, images and other features for particular effects with the aim of persuading an audience.

Use a neat, joined and legible handwriting style consistently across the curriculum.

Use ICT for drafting and revising as well as producing a finished piece.

Use layout, format, graphics and illustrations for different purposes.

Develop speed and accuracy when typing.

Sentence Construction and punctuation

Identify the common punctuation marks including commas, semi-colons, colons, dashes, hyphens, speech marks and respond to them appropriately when reading

Understand how the grammar of a sentence alters when the sentence type is altered, when, e.g. a statement is made into a question, a question becomes an order, a positive statement is made negative, taking note of:

- the order of words/verb tenses
- additions and/or deletions of words
- changes to punctuation.
- Use adverbs and conjunctions to establish cohesion within paragraphs.
