Our first topic is for the special Roal Dahl week. We are studying The Twits and will work towards retelling a whole chapter off by heart using actions and storymaps.
After this, we will be writing a short fictional story set in Anglo Saxon times.
Toward Christmas we turn our hand to creating instructions, on Publisher, for making a christmas Lantern. We finish with the lovely story of The Little Match Girl, by Hans Christian Anderson, to take us up to Christmas.
Throughout all the topics, we read and enjoy poetry linked to these themes as well as daily practice with grammar, guided reading, spelling and handwriting practice.
We begin by delving into the criminal world of the Mafia Cats, thanks to the wonderful poems by the poet Roger McGough.
Following this we will explore
the story 'Leon and the Place Between' by Grahame Baker-Smith.
Towards the end of term, we will be writing about inventions old and new. We study aspects of a book about Leonardo Da Vinci.
