In Winston Churchill class it is expected that your child reads at least 5 times a week. They must record all their reading in their diary (in the weekly sections). At the end of the week it must be signed by a parent/guardian and will be checked on a Monday by Miss Clarke.
In KS2 children are split into groups for spelling lessons where they will be given spellings to learn at home each week and will be tested weekly.
Each week the children have five English lessons; a reading comprehension lesson, a grammar lesson and three independent writing lessons where they will study a range of writing genres. Children will also have R2L (read to learn) sessions everyday where they study a specific text and develop reading skills and comprehension skills.
Our first text for R2L is George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl.
