We are currently reading The Viewer by Shaun Tan. This is giving us ideas for some lovely descriptive writing!
We are going to be reading Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce this term. Keep checking back to see some of our work on this brilliant book!
Group work can be a great way to explore our ideas about a book. We have been thinking about Liam, the main character in Cosmic and what we have found out about him so far. Working in groups, we created a "Role on the Wall" which we can add to as we find out more about him.
The text that Class 5 read in their English lessons before Christmas was "The Princess Blankets" by Carol Ann Duffy. We also read some of her poetry during our guided reading lessons.
We started term 2 by reading "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes. This is a classic, narrative poem packed full of action! We have written news reports about the main events of the poem which are now on display in Class 5.
