In Literacy, our class texts this term will be Anglo Saxon Boy and Beowulf. During guided reading sessions we will:

*Participate in discussions about the text, building on their own and others’ ideas and beginning to challenge views courteously.

*Explain and discuss their understanding of what they have read, including through formal presentations, philosophical debates and reading diary entries.

Writing sessions will include retelling a story from a different viewpoint: experiences during Viking invasions from the point of view of ordinary Anglo Saxon and Viking people.

-Use the Jabberwocky Poem to inspire writing that requires the reader to make inferences.

- Read and respond to examples of Old Norse Poetry

-Write a recount of trip to Sutton Hoo.
