What are we learning this term?

 

Writing

 

During Autumn 1, we will explore these big questions in our writing:

 

  • What form, language conventions and grammatical features should go in a report? (Non-Chronological Reports)
  • How might an author help the audience to change their opinion about a character? (Chinese Myths & Legends)

 

Reading

We will be focusing on the VIPERS skills to answer questions about what we have read. We will summarise the main ideas from a text, identifying key details whilst also identifying how language, structure and presentation can contribute to meaning and impact a reader, particularly through the use of figurative language. We will also prepare poems and plays to read aloud and perform, showing understanding through intonation, tone and volume so that the meaning is clear to an audience. 

 

Spelling

 

In spelling this half term, we will be learning the rules to enable children to know which spelling of a suffix to apply:

  • -cial and -tial
  • -cious and -tious 

 

Tricky words to spell

   

accommodate, accompany, according, achieve, aggressive, amateur, ancient, apparent, appreciate, attached
