In English we will initially be working on biographies which will link into our science topic of Living things and Habitats. Next we will be covering a unit based on 'woodland' poetry including free verse, cinquains and Haikus. After this we will move on to reports which will cover both police reports and newspaper reports which will take us into the second half of the Autumn term.
Much of our work will be linked to our class text 'Boy in the Tower' which will form the basis of our reading diet and reading comprehension as well as some of our writing.
Grammar will be taught in context but children will also been given opportunities to practice grammar skills and revisit concepts taught.
Spelling rules will also be taught on a weekly basis.
