  • What impression do you get of the main character? Why is this?
  • What language has the author used to draw the reader in? What impact does this have? 
  • What is the genre of the book?

Weekly Review: 

Another amazing week in Year 6.

The children have showed such resilience this week as they continue to develop their English and maths. They have produced some wonderful pieces of writing based around our new text Skellig. 

Below is the Year 5 or 6 newsletter that outlines what we are covering this term in each subject.
