This half term, in English, we are reading a book called 'The Butterfly Lion' by Michael Morpurgo. All of our comprehension and writing tasks will revolve around this book. So far, we have met the main character 'Bertie' and have yet to find out what is so special about 'The Butterfly Lion'. Last week, we read chapter 3 (which was set in Africa) and picked out all of the effective vocabulary which would be relevant to an African Veld setting description. We used dictionaries to find out what the vocabulary meant and worked hard to 'up-level' some of it using a thesaurus. This week, we will plan and write our setting descriptions and aim to include as much of that vocabulary as possible. Later in the week, 5 of the best ones from each class will be chosen to be published on Pobble.

Our topic this half term is 'Aspirations'. We are learning all about what a 'career' is and what it means to aspire for one. We started off by discussing the different careers available before thinking about a particular one which suits us. Once we had decided on the career we would like to aspire to, we noted down all the relevant skills and attributes which were relevant to that job. Finally, this week we used that information to write our own CV.
