Autumn term 2
Our reading focus this term is matching – linking information together. We will continue to develop the children’s skimming, scanning and close reading skills to help then locate specific information to help them answer the questions posed. Additionally, we will be focusing on how to provide evidence to support our opinions, ideas answer which we have inferred.
We are continuing to read "The Extraordinary Colours of Auden Dare" as our class reader.
In our English lessons this term we will be reading a selection of poems, including "Poetry Jump-Up!" by John Agard, "Football Mad" by Benjamin Zephaniah, "On Flanders Field" by John McCrae and "Refugees" by Brian Bilston. We will then be writing our own poetry based on the theme of refugees. We will then look at excerpts from narrative texts and write our own narrative texts using a range of figurative language techniques.
