Happy Children Inspired to Learn

English

In English during Spring 2 we are focusing on the text ‘Charlie and the Chocolate factory' by Roald Dahl. We will be exploring this text, developing our skimming and scanning, inference and retrieval skills to answer multiple choice questions..During our Reading sessions we will be look specifically at the characters, their character traits and how they compare to one another as well as developing our reading skills to answer multiple choice questions. Our Reading sessions directly link into our writing sessions and feed our understanding of the genre features, language techniques and text structure. We will use the description in this book to help us improve our choice and use of adjectives to create a persuasive poster at the beginning of the term. Later in the term, we will be using our character reading sessions to further develop our understanding of the characters using adjectives and verbs to create impact, adverbial phrases and subordinating and coordinating conjunctions. All the skills taught will enable the children to write a diary entry from the perspective of one of the characters.
