We will explore the text and use it to write short and longer pieces of writing. We have not finished this unit yet as we have been busy doing lots of revision. We will then start our next unit called 'A Story like the Wind' by Gill Lewis

There will be 2 main outcomes for each unit:

A tracksuit is allowed for outdoor PE in colder weather and this includes the school hoodie (hooides must only be worn on PE days). The correct footwear must also be worn. Girls must tie their hair back and remove or cover earrings.

Spellings will be taught and tested in class on a 4 week cycle, giving children more time to practise and consolidate spelling patterns. The spelling patterns being taught can be downloaded on this page along with the common exception words for Year 5/6. Reading should be completed 3-4 times a week, with the aim to complete one school reading book per week. This weekly reading should be recorded in the reading record and handed in when asked for. When a book is finished, 3 comprehension questions should be recorded to show understanding of the text. If a child is on Level 15 or higher then a book review must be completed.

Let's have a great Summer Term
