Can you work out which member of our class is reading their own story?

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.

w/c 11 May

Focus theme: Recipes

Some of the lessons this week provide the opportunity to follow a recipe and make some delicious food! 

When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.

You may find it useful to watch some of these handy tips before you start cooking or baking!

w/c 4th May

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.

When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.  I have checked the links and everything seems to be working!
 
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.
