In English Year 3 and 4 base their learning around a topic or text and year 5 and 6 base theirs around another.
We read a wide variety of fiction and non fiction texts as a class/group, identifying language and punctuation choices.
At the beginning of each lesson we take part in Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar practise, this will again involve working as a class or independently to develop our understanding, the use of punctuation and vocabulary choices.
For a large proportion of the lesson we spend out time completing tasks, these may mix our SPAG and reading learning and we will identify different features in genres of writing, write our own and evaluate so that they can be improved.
Homework will be linked to the SPAG learning or the topic based throughout the lesson.
