Our Spring term topic is

Our writing focus will be writing poetry about natural forces and character descriptions based on the story ‘Escape from Pompeii.’ We will also write a character description of a dragon using‘The Dreamgiver' as a starting point.
Each week we will have a reading session where we will develop our reading and comprehension skills. This will involve reading in a group and individually. We will get to know the text well through discussion, role play and will answer questions about it.
