Our focus for this half term is poetry and descriptive writing using Kassim and the Greedy Dragon, How to Catch a Dragon and The Moonshine Dragon as our reading materials.

As Readers

We shall be looking at the above texts, in order to help stimulate creative writing as well as concentrating on expanding our vocabulary. We shall also continue to develop our understanding of texts by answering questions related to inference.

As Writers

We will be focusing on poetry and descriptive writing. To help us with our poems and stories, we will look at powerful verbs, adjectives, prefixes and suffixes, similies and alliteration. We shall continue to practise capital letters, full stops and inverted commas.

Vocabulary = fierce, dragons, knights, breath, claws, scales, embers, as strong as, gild, moonlight, peer, tremble, brave

In GEOGRAPHY

pupils will be exploring the countries that make up the UK. We will use Atlases to locate some of the counties within England and their prominent cities. We will practise using the compass points to describe where a place is situated. Lessons will include a topographical study where we will identify rivers, seas, coasts and mountainous regions on maps. We will use the computers to research geographical information related to Essex and Cumbria and make comparisons.

Vocabulary = county, region, mountainous, coastal, marshland, research, locate, compass, Atlas, Essex, Cumbria.

Home Learning

Homework will be handed out on Friday and will be due back in the following Wednesday. It will vary each week depending on what we are learning. However, it is expected that every week, all children will continue to learn their times tables and spellings (to be tested on a Friday) and read at home.
