In English this term all of our writing will be linked to our Enquiry question, 'Can you see how I feel?' which all revolves around refugees.
We will be hearing different stories from refugees and writing our own recounts of one of the stories we have heard, writing a narrative based upon our class text, linked to a young boy who has had to run away from his country due to war and is in the middle of the ocean on a boat, with none of his treasured possessions and finally writing a biography about one of the many famous people who were actually refugees themselves.
How can I support my child in English?
In Year 6 it is necessary for the children to be able to join their handwriting, so children must ensure they are confident in joining neatly and fluently, so any practice they can get in this will be fantastic.
The children are also assessed on their spellings, so check out the homework section of our class page for ways you can support your child in their spelling.
