In English this term, we will be reading The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. It is a fantastic book about survival and friendship. With lots of fantastic vocabulary and a gripping story line, I hope Peacock Class enjoy reading this book!
We will be doing lots of writing this year and we will kick off term 1 with a problem/resolution story and a newspaper article. We will be using the talk for writing approach for English.
Guided reading will be taught daily, teaching the children the VIPERS skills (vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval and summarising) they need to be great readers.
