Focus text: Horrid Henry by Francesca Simon
This week you will be reading all about the antics of Horrid Henry. Please don't copy him at home!
Each of the lessons this week uses extracts which are available from the LoveReading4kids website. I have put the extracts on but you can look at them by registering and membership is free. There are also numerous episodes of the animated version available on YouTube.
Focus theme: Recipes
Some of the lessons this week provide the opportunity to follow a recipe and make some delicious food!

You may find it useful to watch some of these handy tips before you start cooking or baking!
This week's writing tasks are produced by the English and Literacy Team at Lancashire County Council. It is a different format from the one we have been using.
The focus text/theme is Roald Dahl Poetry.

Roald Dahl may already be one of your favourite authors, but did you know he was very skilled at writing poetry too?
The extracts used this week are from Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts, both of which are told completely in rhyme.
Dahl did, however, also use poetry within some of his stories, e.g. when the Oompa Loompas sing about each of the children in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the window cleaners in The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me.
