This term we are learning about the Anglo-Saxons.  Our core text is Anglo-Saxon Boy by Tony Bradman.

In the Spring term we were learning about Earth and Space.  Our English work was based around our class text,

Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce.

In the autumn term we used the texts below for our English work.  We used the Jungle Book as a basis for our work on classic fiction and then moved on to looking at Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories when we moved into the writing phase.  We have also used the poem, 'The Walrus and the Carpenter' by Lewis Carroll to show our understanding of the features of a poem.
