Our text this half term is Zog by Julia Donaldson. It's a fun book about a young accident prone dragon, named Zog, who wants to be the best student in dragon school.
Children read on a regular basis in Class 5. We have a daily story time session, which is an opportunity to share a book together, ask questions about the text and talk about the book and related topics. Reading books are taken home and changed on a weekly basis. We encourage children to read at home 4 times a week, practice reading tricky words and use their phonics to decode unfamiliar words.
Click on the buttons below to see suggested reading book lists for Class 5.
We practice handwriting regularly. Children are taught to print their letters, check their letters are evenly sized, how to differentiate between capital letters and lowercase letters and how to present their work neatly.
We learn phonics in small groups.We use a programme called Monster Phonics to help us learn our letters and sounds.
