World Book Day and reading strategies

On Friday we celebrated World Book Day.



Everybody made a fantastic effort to dress up and we had a great range of costumes from Mary Poppins to Dennis The Menace!

The children engaged in a range of activities to celebrate the day including choosing a story time book and sharing their own favourite book.

We have also held reading workshops for parents this week helping parents to understand the types of comprehension questions the children answer after reading a text. We used Canine characters to help illustrate this eg Victor Vocabulary, Rex Retriever, Suki Sequencing, Iggy Inference and Pippa Prediction.

This week  we are starting a new unit of English, based on the stories of Anthony Browne, especially his story Little Beauty.
