Language, Literacy and Communication

This year we will be studying a range of quality texts including, James and the Giant Peach, A Christmas Carol, Twelfth Night, The Invention of Hugo Cabret and The Cube. We will use the texts to inspire a variety of reading responses and extended writing activities.


We will engage in debates and discussions about local issues and topics and will be encouraged to take part in role play and drama activities inspired by our projects. Our literacy will be developed and nurtured throughout the curriculum, and we will be given lots of opportunities to write for different purposes.


The Welsh language will be developed though the study of the Harri Morgan and Gwyliau texts. We will also be given the opportunity to write a recount of an educational visit in Welsh, to perform a Welsh song to enhance our vocabulary work and to perform a Welsh poem.
