Guided Reading

This half term we are studying the book "Holes" by Louis Sachar. This story is set in America and details the unfortunate events of a wrongly convicted boy who has to dig holes in the desert as a punishment for his “crimes.” We read for meaning and answer comprehension questions based our VIPERS scheme.

Religious Education (R.E.)

Easter: In this unit the children learn about the Church’s Celebration of Easter through the Easter Vigil. They will learn about the Church’s belief in eternal life through the Easter Story and the Story of the Ascension of Jesus into heaven.

Pentecost: This unit is designed to give children greater insight into the Church’s belief in the Holy Spirit. It will also explore the Christian belief in the Holy Trinity and prayer and devotion to the Holy Spirit.

Writing and Grammar

In English we are focusing on our Grammar and Punctuation with a four week program of intense learning on Nouns and the use of Verbs in sentences. We shall then use this knowledge and take inspiration from our Guided Reading Text to create a non-chronological report.
