AUTUMN SPRING SUMMER

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.


      In the next half term, we explore and write about the Antarctic adventures of Captain Scott and the race to the South Pole, writing diary extracts and poems about the events.

       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.

      
An exciting term of literacy is ahead. We read all kinds of Ancient Greek myths, learn to be oral storytellers and write our own myth. We will also write lengthy explanations about how the Ancient Greeks lived.

      This is also our 'Malvern' term. So, upon our return, prepare to persuade your audience to visit the place for themselves.

Watch out for our Promotional Video and our own poems inspired by
Kit Wright
's 'Red Boots On.'.

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.

 


Listen to a range of different ads for different audiences...
a bit of fun, all produced in just one lesson.
