We will be investigating the works of famous authors including Katherine Rundell, Onjali Q Raúf, Jacqueline Wilson and Roald Dahl.


Our TfW work will be linked to this topic, and writing tasks will include creating Newspaper Reports inspired by the announcement of the ‘Golden Ticket’ competition in ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.


The whole school will also be studying the books ‘Leaf’ by Sandra Dieckmann and 'After the Fall' by Dan Santat.

Our Class Book this term is ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ by Onjali Q Raúf (one of the authors we will be learning about).

We will also be delving into a range of literature as part of our ‘Book Club’, where each week we dip into one of the books from our Class Library. Children can discuss their likes and dislikes about the book and its genre, and whether they would like to continue reading it independently.
