Can I write the main body of a diary entry?
In this lesson, we will use our planning and vocabulary generation from previous lessons to write the main body paragraph of our diary entry.
Can I consider how reading can provide people with a way of learning new things?
In this lesson we will review everything we have learnt from reading the survivors' stories. The children will then make a mind map showing what the book they are currently reading or have recently read is teaching them. Finally, the teacher will suggest books the children might like to read if they are interested in learning more about WW2.
Can I plan the main body of my diary entry?
In this lesson, we will use fronted adverbials and time and place to structure the main body paragraph of our diary entry.

Can I write the opening of a diary entry?
In this lesson, we will learn how to structure sentences using colons to introduce a list. We will also recap the features and PALLP of diary entries. We will then use vocabulary generated in previous lessons to write the opening paragraph of our diary entry.
Can I understand the key information in a text and consider the author’s perspective?
In this lesson, the children will re-read the text they read previously and be guided to find the key information; they will also be guided to reflect upon the author's experience as they read. The lesson culminates with a writing opportunity which will help the children understand that reading helps them understand an entirely different life while building their ability to empathise.

In this lesson, we will recap the rules associated with adding plural suffixes and learn a spelling practice strategy. The 10 spelling words set in the previous lesson will be revisited and tested.
Can I read a recount and answer retrieval and inference based questions?
In this lesson, the children will place World War II on a timeline and be taught some subject-specific vocabulary. They will then read a first hand account from a Blitz survivor and answer a range of inference and retrieval questions. The children will also have to reflect upon the type of question they are being asked.
Can I explore fronted adverbials?
In this lesson, we will be learning about fronted adverbials of time, place and manner. We will also practice writing some sentences with fronted adverbials.

In this lesson, we will introduce new vocabulary, identify word pairs and synonyms and apply the vocabulary in sentences.
