Our Christian values for this term are Friendship, Thankfulness and Koinonia


'Those who have reverence for the Lord will learn from him the path they should follow.' Psalms 25:12


Class novel

This term our class novel is The Boy Who Swam with Piranhas by David Almond.




Our English work is going to be based on Queen of the Falls by Chris Van Allsburg. As we work through the text we will look at different styles of writing which can be created using what we have read. We will use the text to help us improve our vocabulary, learning new words we can use in our writing. The text will also help us with our punctuation and grammar knowledge and specific sessions will be dedicated to cementing our understanding so that we can use these skills in our writing. At the end of the book we will be writing a diary.
