In our book, The Abominables we found out all about Lady Agatha and her adventures with the yeti's in Himalayan peaks of Nanvi Dar. A kidnap later and she finds out that yetis are actually very kind, noble and friendly creatures.
We did lots of work in our reading lessons sequencing the text, making predictions, inferring feelings and gathering evidence from the text.
Journey to Jo'burg
In our newest book, Journey to Jo'Burg, we have been studying language and using our new 'shades of meaning' cards to find new and better words to use in our explanations. We have predicted what will happen next in the journey .. we are excited to see what happens when Naledi and Tiro arrive Johannesburg ...
We have been reading The Witches by Roald Dahl and we have made predictions as to what will happen to the little boy when he comes face to face with REAL witches! We inferred how the boy was feeling during these encounters and how grandmama felt about leaving Norway to come and live in England. Our retrieval skills have been tested too! We found evidence from the text to support our answers!
