Autumn 2


'The Great (Food) Bank Heist'


This half term we have been reading The Great (Food) Bank Heist by Onjali Q Rauf.  The children have been enjoying using readers theatre to explore different characters how they act and feel. This has also been a great chance for them to practise reading with expression and fluency!




Autumn 1


"The Boy Who Grew Dragons"


This half term we have been reading The Boy Who Grew Dragons  by Andy Shepherd. The children have absolutely loved this text! Mrs Burton let us know that because they loved it so much she has purchased the other books in the series for the school library. 


The children have been reading along with class copies of the book, they have been echo reading and answering questions. We have also been inferring information about dragons using other types of text including poems about dragons. The children have been very imaginative with predictions and sharing ideas.
