In Literacy this term we will be focusing our writing around Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. This will involve us reading the text, empathising with characters and writing in a range of genres. The text will give the children a great stimulus for the using advanced vocabulary alongside key structural and SPaG elements.
The class will be completely daily Guided Reading sessions where each group will read with an adult twice a week and then complete other comprehension activities which support their reading skills further. We will have weekly spelling tests whereby the children will be split into three groups to focus on the year 5/6 words they require as well as spelling rules or patterns.
