Writing: We will be exploring descriptive language inspired by music and film. Children will describe characters, emotions and events as well as planning and writing their own story. Children will also work on improving grammar skills and taking a deeper look at journalistic writing.

Reading: Decoding text, focusing on inference and deduction, retrieving information and answering SATs type questions in preparation for the tests next term.

Spellings: Children have 10 spellings to learn each week. They should check the meanings of these words and show understanding of the spelling rule by choosing a further 5 words. They are tested on those spellings weekly. We will also be preparing for the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling test.
