In Year 5, we will be exploring the following carefully selected books. Using these quality texts, we will continue to develop our understanding and love of reading. We will engage in the shared experience and immerse ourselves in each of the texts. Together, we will be discussing given themes in depth and develop empathy for others. We will further improve our skills and understanding through prediction and inference. We will delve deeper by asking and answering questions. One of the main areas of learning will be to explore author intent, their use of vocabulary and the impact this has on the reader. Each session will aim to engage and enthuse.
