Welcome to Book Week!
This week we will be enjoying lots of activities based around books as we head towards World Book Day on Thursday! All the details are on our special Book Week webpage but here are some of the highlights for you to look forward to!
What else can we look forward to?
David Walliams is holding his very own online Amazing Assembly for World Book Day tomorrow (Tuesday) morning at 10.30am! To watch it at home, you must register in advance so click on this link https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/join-david-walliams-for-his-amaaaaazing-assembly-for-world-book-day/ to receive all the details!
Don't forget to join Mr Henry at 10.00am today when he will be going live on Instagram and reading "Code Name Bananas" by David Walliams - more details at the top of this page!
Let's begin by playing a word chains game! Beginning with the word "apple", how many words can you add to your chain? Choose your chilli challenge level and aim to create a chain with at least 12 words. Challenge someone else in your house to see who can create the longest word chain!
This week's P6 Literacy tasks are based around "Mister Skip" by Michael Morpurgo. Each day, Mrs Bell will read one chapter of the book with you. You can read along with her because all of the words are also on the screen. Then we will complete our written activities based on that chapter. Today we are reading Chapter 1 and then answering some literal and inferential questions.
Once you've read through Chapter 1 with Mrs Bell, choose either the higher level or the lower level, watch the related video and then download both the excerpt from Chapter 1 and today's task.
You will be answering questions based on this excerpt - literal questions where you can find the answer in the story and then inferential questions where we use clues in the story as well as our own views and experiences to help us form an answer.
Extension activity - clarifying
Use a dictionary to find out the meaning of the following words from Chapter 1.
If you haven't got a dictionary at home, use an online dictionary such as Oxford Learner's Dictionaries
It's so important to do some reading each day! Don't forget to log in to BugClub www.activelearnprimary.co.uk where you can read this week's book plus revisit some of the books you've already read.
