Relevant to our Year Group:

 

This year, we will be rewarding children who read at home every evening with a sticker and a table point at the end of the week. There will be an additional reward for children who have managed this for the whole half-term.
As well as hearing your child read every evening, here are some activities you might like to try at home to help develop their comprehension skills:
 
  • Write about their favourite character from the book they are reading.
  • Write a list of adverbs to show how a favourite character moves. (Try acting them out.)
  • Draw a picture of the most important event in the book.
  • Design a new front cover for the book.
  • Write the blurb for the story.
  • Write a different ending for the story.
  • Change the setting for one of the scenes. How does this alter the story?
  • Can they turn the story into a script?
  • Use playdough and make a short animation of the book.
  • Share books or comics that you loved as a child!
 
We would love to see any work completed at home.
