It has been good to see everyone back and well again! This week we have begun a new unit of work based on the stunning book “Planetarium”, by Chris Wormell and Raman Prinja, which has inspired us to write about space and draw on our learning from Year 5’s science. We used the information we read to make a fact file about planet Earth (here are two lovely examples from Bobby and Melissa). We have also been word collecting this week not only in Literacy but also in guided reading, where we have been reading the Greek myth of the cyclops, retold by Anthony Horowitz. Our aim is to use ambitious new words in our writing to interest the reader.

Have a wonderful Bonfire weekend, and Happy Diwali! Stay safe.
