5B's English page


Here you will find out what is happening in our English lessons and the spellings for each week.



Week beginning: 17th September


We will be continuing to look at stories from the Rainforest. This week we will be looking at how to develop characterisation through 'showing, not telling'. We will also be looking at how to write our own stories in preparation for our hot writes.


Show Don't Tell - This is the technique of creating a picture for the reader of how a character is feeling such as 'Tears began to roll down her cheeks.' rather than simply 'She was sad.'


Spelling Test: Monday 24th September
