There are some super reading videos on Seesaw Reception. It is lovely to hear how far you have come during lockdown.



Reading – Choose one of your reading books and talk about the story.

See if you can discuss what happened in the story?

Who are the characters? Discuss their feelings? Could you add any speech to your characters?

Was there a problem to solve? How was it solved?

Could you think of a different ending to the story?

Reminders – Please contact the School Office if you would like to change your reading books.
