Day 2:

Create a new bookmark for your reading book! Be as creative as you can and see what you can find around the house to decorate it with.


Day 3:

During our class story time, we choose a few sentences from the text and analyse them together. We pick out information that we ‘know’ from the sentence, and information we can ‘infer’ (guess) from the sentence. We also talk about if there are any writing techniques in the sentence such as similes, and we look at any punctuation and why this has been used. Look at the sentences in the worksheet below called ‘story time sentence analysis’, Write down or discuss anything you notice about these sentences. They are taken from the ‘The Twit’s’ by Roald Dahl.


Day 4:

Look at the extract below called ‘predicting’. It is taken from a book called ‘The Legend of Kevin’ and is about a flying pony! Read the extract carefully, and then write a prediction about what you think will happen next in the story giving your reasons from evidence in the text.
