Curriculum coverage

This term we will be focusing on writing to inform. We will be transferring our reading into writing skills based on the book The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. We will use the story to inspire non-chronological reports in the form of a leaflet. We will also be planning, writing and recording a radio broadcast. Spelling and grammar will also be taught separately throughout the week.

Children will come home with a reading for pleasure book and a banded reading book. In school, children will

Have guided reading lessons 3 per week, where they will read with an adult. There will also be other opportunities for the children to read individually to an adult inside or outside of the classroom. Our class novel this half term will be Journey to the River Sea

Novel by Eva Ibbotson

At Home: Even though your child is in year 5, it is vital for you to listen to them read at home aloud at least three times a week. At Bredon Hancock’s we promote a love of reading throughout the school and it really does make a difference to their success in school if we have your full support with this at home. We would also like you to practise spellings with them once a week.
