Autumn 2

This half term we will look at suspense in stories - one story we will read is The Watertower by Gary Crew. We will use the ipads to support with our reading.
Reading strategies include:

  •  Cut the word up into syllables.
  • Read before and after and the sentences and see if a word makes sense.
  • Find smaller words within the bigger word.
  • Use a dictionary to find its meaning.

We will also be learning about autobiographies and biographies. We will look at famous people such as Evelyn Glennie, J.K. Rowling, Roald Dahl as well as finding information about someone we want to learn about.
