In our English lessons for the Autumn term, we will be reading the text: How to Train your Dragon by Cressida Cowell.

Reading

Please read with your child everyday at home.

In class we use reciprocal reading as a way of teaching the children the skills needed to become a fluent and confident reader. We do this by following the steps below.

Predicting – What do they think this text is about?

Clarify – What new vocabulary have they experienced? What do the new words/phrases mean?

Question – Can children answer questions about the text?

Summary – In their words, what is the text about?

All children have a logon to Collins and a library for each to choose a suitable book. Please use the following link to sign in.
