In the Autumn Term we will studying four texts with cross curricular links to our Topic. These include: Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian , The Lion and The Unicorn by Shirley Hughes, Anne Frank by Josephine Poole and Rose Blanche by Christophe Gallaz and Roberto Innocenti. We will look a variety of formal and informal writing and will be focussing on grammar objectives with each.
We will be recapping on previously taught grammar including word classes and punctuation as well as developing our use of parenthesis, relative clauses, semi-colons, colons and hyphens.
Children will recap on Year 3 and 4 spelling words as well as learning Year 5 and 6 words and practicing spelling rules to support unfamiliar words.
Guided Reading will take place daily with one Reading for Pleasure session each week. Children are able to change their books when they have completed one and will receive reading reward prizes for 100 times reading.
