To begin our English topic for this half term, we will be looking at character descriptions. We will be learning how to use non-finite clauses and recapping how to use a variety of adverbials to add describe. We will also be focusing on how to use commas accurately to avoid ambiguity in our writing. We will then move on to reports and writing a report of an event. Within this, we will learn about direct and reported speech,

This term we will begin to read our class reader ‘Beowulf’. We will use different versions of the text to help spark our imagination of the mythical character.

Our reading focus this term is skimming and scanning. We will recap these skills and use them in larger texts to gain a deeper understanding of the text and answer questions using evidence gathered.
