This term we started off reading 'Voices in the Park' by Anthony Browne. The children have looked at lots of description and using figurative language to really bring our writing to life. We have looked at four different perspectives on the same story and how that then goes onto affect the readers opinion on the story.
We have also been reading widely and accessing different types of text, e.g. poetry, non-fiction and different genres of fiction. We have been answering questions based on fact retrieval, inference and deduction skills, word meanings in different contexts and comparison questions.
We will also be looking at a variety of vocabulary in our grammar, punctuation and spelling lessons, such as:
- Subordinating and Co-ordinating conjunctions,
- Brackets, dashes and commas for parenthesis,
- Figurative language including: personification, similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia and hyperboles.
We are aiming to be reading our reading books at least three times every week!
