Welcome to Class 5B

Class teacher: Mrs Brettle 
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Nock

Our learning:  


Our whole class text this term is: 


In reading, we will be focusing on the 'journey story' Explorer, where we will be using the VIPERS to gain an understanding fo what is happening in the text. We will also be looking at a range of Non-Fiction texts that relate to Rainforests to support our understanding. 


The book Explorer is going to act as a stimulus for our writing. 

To begin with, we will be looking at the genre of Narrative. We shall be looking at different versions of journey stories, sharing and editing writing and then creating our own story. 

After this, we will be looking at Newspaper articles, Diary Entries and Non-Chronological Reports. 

To finish the term, we shall be exploring Nonsense Poetry. Our poem will be the Jabberwocky from Alice in Wonderland.
