In Year 4 we will be exploring these carefully selected books. We will develop positive attitudes to reading by exploring a range of texts with varied genres, structures and purposes. One of the main areas of learning in Novel Study is to explore author’s choice and use of vocabulary and the impact it has on the reader. We started our novel study journey in the Autumn term and have since enjoyed exploring the work of different authors through daily group sessions. These sessions are always filled with purposeful discussion and a buzz for reading.
Books to inspire our writing sequence
We use these books to learn to write like successful authors. We analyse author choices of style, vocabulary, punctuation and intent which allows us to build an author’s toolkit. We then learn the skills to include this toolkit into our own writing. We use this as a foundation to create our very own pieces of wonderful writing. At the end of our writing journey we publish our master pieces for others to enjoy.
Building a love of books
In Year 4 we love escaping into a world of adventure, intrigue and imagination. During the year we will enjoy sharing these books together.
