Welcome to Year 6!|
This term we will be looking at a range of texts based on War, such as Rose Blanche. We will also be reading extracts from a selection of well-known books: Holes, The Demon Headmaster, and Kensuke's Kingdom. We will also be reading other texts; both fiction and non-fiction. Every week, we will be creating different pieces of writing based on various genres. As a class we will continue to practice using our reciprocal reading skills to help us understand texts better and learn new vocabulary. Keep reading when you can- at home and at school!
