In the first term, pupils will be exploring two high-quality texts. The first will be "Escape from Pompeii" which links with our topics on the Roman Empire. This book has rich vocabulary and stunning illustrations which hope to capture the imagination of our pupils.
The second text will be the famous "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" which will start to link to the approaching Christmas holidays. Pupils will enjoy exploring a new, fantastical world.
This term, our pupils have enjoyed Louis Sachar's "There's a boy in the girls' bathroom". Pupils explored this text and developed their inference skills as we began to better understand how Bradley might not always feel the way he pretends to.
This term, for out topic on the rainforests, we will be reading "The Explorer" by Katherine Rundell. When Fred, Lila, Max, and Con crash land in the Amazon rainforest, how will they survive. Check back soon for our own versions of the beginning of this text.
