English

Over the coming weeks, we will be reading and working from a text called Henry's Freedom Box. I will not give too much away about the text yet as I do not want to spoil the plot for you!  As we work through the book, we will complete lots of short burst writing pieces and complete a diary entry and biography for our final extended pieces of work.

As well as this, we will be covering lots of spelling and grammar activities starting with different word classes and phrases and clauses.
