Reading

We would love you to enjoy at least 30 minutes of reading for pleasure every day. Snuggle up and pick a book to read on your own or with a family member. Enjoy escaping into another world, or learning about something new!

Today's task is all about the NHS! Take your time to read and learn all about the amazing history of our NHS. Afterwards, use your 'Reading Skills' to answer the comprehension questions. Remember to use a highlighter/coloured pencil to underline/highlight your evidence - this will make it easier to find when answering the questions! :) Enjoy!

 04.06.20 Friday & Monday Reading Task (Learn, Practice and Perform!)

Your task this week, is to learn, practice and perform the poem Halfway Down by A.A Milne. You will have one week to put together your own performance of the poem, which can be as creative as you like.

You can use props, costumes, family members…whatever you like to create an amazing performance. Use the checklist on the task sheet to help you!

Please send your completed performance videos to your class teacher by Friday 12th June 2020 for extra housepoints!    


 What shall I read?

Did you know... that J.K.Rowling (author of Harry Potter) is releasing her new story 'The Ickabog' (not linked to HP by the way!) on this website https://www.theickabog.com/home/ during lockdown. She is uploading a few chapters at a time, and I would recommend it! I know some of 5H are enjoying it already!

You could even enter the illustration competition, for a chance to have your pictures of the story to be put into the published version of the book, due to be released later this year!

Fellow Book Clubbers... I hope you really enjoyed reading Malamander! I know I did! If, like me, you want to know what happens next to Herbie, Violet and the other residents of Eerie-on-Sea, check out Thomas Taylor's new book Gargantis! It's recently been released and I can't wait to read it! I have a copy, and will make sure that it's available to any of you whenever you come back to school. 

There is a short trailer for the book here: Gargantis trailer

01.06.20 Monday Reading Task (Discussing Poetry)

Your task today, is to read through the poem 'Answer to a child's Question' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge and answer the questions on the task sheet. Think carefully about the skill needed to answer each question, and remember...poetry uses figurative language, so doesn't always mean exactly what it says!  Enjoy!


Frostheart

Miss Harvey has been posting chapters of Frostheart by Jamie Littler over on the Wordsworth Youtube channel. We're nearly at the end, so well done if you've kept up! If you haven't you can always start listening whenever you like! It's a great adventure story!  


If you're interested in doing some extra reading comprehension, check out the copy of First News on the 'All Year Groups' page. There are comprehension questions and quizzes available at different levels. 


We know that some of you are worried that you might not be able to complete our Bookworm challenge while you are off school. 

Please be reassured that if you continue to complete book reviews, we will ensure you will get your badge whenever we come back to school. If you're unsure which categories you have not yet completed, ask your teacher on Class Dojo and we will let you know.

Happy Reading :)
