Our literacy work in Year 5 is currently based around the new class reading book of Way Home. This is a really challenging text for the children to explore, with many themes and possible outcomes to the story. As we progress with the reading, Year 5 are writing diary entries, or letters to express their feelings, all based from a particular character perspective. We are also combining much of this work with our drama sessions, using the concept of a conscience alley to help put together constructive arguments based on the actions of the characters.
