Summer Term 2

Our Topic this term will be…

The Nowhere Emporium

 

Throughout this half term we will be focusing our learning around writing for different purposes. We will have the opportunity to use the language features of different genres, imitating authors who write both formally and informally using a range of higher-level vocabulary, punctuation and grammar. The children will be using The Nowhere Emporium novel as a stimulus to their writing. They will have the opportunity to write a letter of complaint; a setting description; a diary entry in role as the main character; and a police report.

 

When analysing the text in reading lessons, we will be using language of deduction to respond to questions that involve making predictions and sharing inferences made about characters and events in the story.

Raising Aspirations:

Job Junction

This half term, we will be thinking carefully about our future and the transition we are about to embark on when we move into the next stage of education. We will be taking part in a programme in partnership with the University of Central Lancashire called Job Junction, which aims to revolutionise careers and opportunities for all young people in education.

 

The programme supports primary schools in facilitating an age-appropriate, interactive careers-led learning environment and opportunities for social interaction with businesses to develop knowledge, logical connections and positive inferences with education and how it will support their future experiences.

 

For the past two years, we have hosted Careers Carousels, where we invited members of the community to share with us information about their jobs: the qualities and skills they feel they have; day-to-day tasks as part of their job and the route they took into employment. They have been a great success and we learned a lot about different types of employment opportunities available in the future. We are pleased to announce that our third Career Carousel will be taking place again this term!
