      English 
This term we will be looking at a range of texts based on WW2. Our class novel is 'Letters from the Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll, but we will also be reading other texts and books based on our theme, 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.
