Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’

Class Text

Autumn 2

This half term, Year 6 are writing for different purposes and audiences as we continue to spread the word about sustainable palm oil. We will be writing consider different members of Liverpool City Council to be the recipient of our persuasive letter, written in a formal style. We will also be reporting using a newspaper form to share our findings and spread our messages in the community. 

We will finish the half term off by studying ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens and exploring the change in language, narrative features from the past and characterisation. The main character, Ebeneezer Scrooge, is a grouch. He is a greedy businessman who never has a kind word for anyone and is infamous for his lack of Christmas cheer. When the three ghosts of Christmas pay him a visit, Scrooge is given the opportunity to examine his conscience, inspiring him to change his ways and be transformed by the spirit of Christmas.

Autumn 1

This half term, our texts will be a whole school approach. 'The Wonder Garden and 'There's a Rang-Tan in my bedroom'. 


The Wonder Garden is a beautifully illustrated book which allows its readers to 'wander through five habitats to discover eighty amazing animals.

The book entices children and adults alike through the golden gates on the cover and into the wondrous garden that is planet Earth.  From deserts, rainforests and mountains to oceans we are met by double spread after double spread of richly illustrated landscapes and beautifully drawn creatures.

The language used in the text is challenging also using the latin names of the animals alongside the common. The author describes the creatures vividly, using poetic language amongst the technical.

In Year 6 we will be specifically looking at the Amazon Rainforest. 


'There's a Rang-Tan in my bedroom' will raise children's consciousness about conservation and will link with our Chester Zoo project.
