      English 
Our class novel for the term will be the WW2 based book - Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll. Our classwork will be based around this, as well as other short texts and extracts. We will also spend some time  enjoying reading it for pleasure. ​ We will continue to practice​ using our reciprocal reading skills to help us understand texts better and help us learn more vocabulary.
