Scroll down to see what Year 6 have been getting up to as the year has gone on....
Our class novel for this first part of the year was Good Night Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian and we are currently reading The Nowhere Emporium by Ross Mackenzie. We are engrossed in reading it already! As we read each chapter we will:
Delve deeper into the vocabulary
Look for inferences within the text about the plot and characters discuss what Impact this has on the reader
Predict what we think will happen next
Explain what is happening
Retrieve information from text
Give a brief summary of what we have read so far.
We have begun the term looking at biographies. We have had lots of fun looking at the biographies of famous sporting stars and celebrities. We analysed their features in order to write our own biographies of famous figures from the Victorian era and also of Charles Darwin from our Science topic of Evolution and Inheritance.
We have been looking at persuasive articles this term. We read lots of different articles and magpied all the persuasive vocabulary and features.
