Within our reading lessons we have been focusing predominantly on developing our skills of Retrieval – this is where take things directly from the text. We have been using RED to help develop our answers when we have been asked a question.
We will continue to use this as we go into Autumn 2.
We will also be making inferences from a text this term, this is were we need to read between the lines and make sensible guesses about what might happen or what might be said based on what we have read so far. See if you can make some inferences when you are reading at home. Here are some inference style questions that you could use:
Week 1 Reading and Writing
We will be exploring Enid Blyton’s ‘Firework Night’ poem to kick start our learning about the Gunpowder Plot. We will be making inferences from the poem to try and work out who the poem is about. We will use this as a starting point to write our own poems about what we can see, hear, smell and taste on bonfire night.
Within our enquiry lessons, we will be investigating who Guy Fawkes is and what his role was within the Gunpowder Plot.
