In English, during the Autumn term, we will be reading ‘Viking Boy’ by Tony Bradman and ‘Beowulf’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will be using these books to inspire our writing and make links to our History Topic: The Anglo Saxon and Viking struggle for the Kingdom of England.
Studying these texts will allow us to:
  • write a range of descriptive paragraphs regarding the characters
  • report writing
  • use their inference and deduction skills to write about character’s reactions regarding certain events in the book.
  • create non-fiction texts
  • write narratives
  • use persuasive writing skills
  • create a set of instructions
  • read, write and perform poetry
  • create play scripts

We will continue to develop our grammar, punctuation and spelling knowledge.
