We love writing in Oberon! This term we will be building on the skills from Year 4 and looking to increase the creativity and ambition in our writing. We have some wonderful vehicle texts we will be using to help us. We are beginning with Where Once We Stood - a fascinating and inspiring account of the Apollo moon landings. 

  WHERE ONCE WE STOOD: STORIES OF THE APOLLO ASTRONAUTS WHO WALKED ON THE MOON

 We will be using it to help us develop our skills in writing exploration narratives.                                                                 

Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation (SPaG)

Throughout the course of the term, we will be focusing on spelling (please find attached the year 5/6 spelling list and National Curriculum spelling appendix). Any extra practise you can do with your child around learning these spellings will be hugely beneficial to their learning and will stand them in good stead for year 6. 

We will also be practising fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and subordinate clauses. I cannot emphasise enough how reading is one of the most powerful ways to support children in learning these skills.

 It's going to be an exciting term and we can't wait!
