Reading

20 books in 2020

We have set everyone in school a challenge. Can you read 20 different books in 2020 ? With such a wonderful range to choose from, we hope that everyone finds that they can escape with a new type of book.

The Worst Witch

The Worst Witch

 

Year 3 have been reading The Worst Witch as part of their guided reading. The children take it in turns to read to each other in order to answer questions on the chapters.

Year 4 – Guided Reading

Year 4 – Guided Reading

Today in guided reading we continued our study of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. After reading a chapter of the book we got into groups and were given lots of facts about the story. We then had to use our retrieval and inference skills to decide whether each fact was true or false. To further test our skills we also had to identify situations where we couldn’t say for certain whether a fact was true or false – we called these maybe facts. We then discussed our thinking as a class and finally we justified our thoughts in writing using evidence from the text. We all had great fun!
