In year 5/6 this half term, the children have been really enjoying their new class book – Skellig! We have been doing LOTS of reading in class and looking at the main characters and what we know and can infer about them. As part of our literacy learning journey, we are getting ready to write a diary from the perspective of the main characters, so are spending lots of time looking at how the characters behave, talk and interact with each other. We have even been using reading diaries to allow children to record their ideas to share with their families at home!
The children have been really reflective and even thought about how the characters from the story are similar to ones they know from other stories they are reading. In Asia class, we found that the two main characters, Mina and Michael, are very similar to the two main characters in their class book – The Wonderscape!
