  • We will continue to learn about the appendix words and will think about spelling rules including shun words and homophones.
  • We will continue to learn about phrases and clauses, look at relative pronouns and the use of commas.
  • We will continue to use KingFu punctuation to help us to remember how best to punctuate our writing.
  • We will continue to use formal language.
  • We will continue to read "The Secret Garden", making comparisons to other books.
  • We will look at characters and their feelings, using the text to justify our answers.
  • We will continue to look for facts and opinions and differentiate between these

  • We will continue to solve problems.
