Kayden in Year 3 has been enjoying Hmm… by Colin McNaughton this week. We talked about all the jobs that Mr Wolf could do and Kayden told me he would like to be a cook. Kayden helped me to read the story today and recognised some of the tricky words he’s been learning. We were helped by the repetitive part of the text.
Ryelee has recently discovered the Mog stories by Judith Kerr. Here he is engrossed in Mog and the Bunny. We have also shared Mog the Forgetful Cat where clever Mog helps to catch a burglar. Ryelee is now enjoying his reading and we have lots of fun looking at the illustrations and talking about the detail. We have also ordered pictures from the beginning, middle and end of the story.
Layla achieved her target. She chose one of her favourite picture books for me to read to her. As I read Layla pointed to the text moving her finger left to right and page to page. She also joined in with some of the repetitive lines adding actions for words such as “whoosh”! So pleased with Layla. She is now enjoying sharing stories more and more.
Layla in Year1 is learning to recognise sight word ‘the’. She has made her own books illustrating them with characters from her favourite picture books. Layla has taken these home to share with her family. She is very proud of her books.
Ellie in year 5 shared her favourite book with me- Pirates Love Underpants. We read it together and tried out lots of pirate voices!! We laughed when the elastic was cut and the pirates could not run!! We thought it was a good trick.
Daniel’s reading is really coming on now and here you see him enjoying a book about hamsters. Daniel now chooses books from the turquoise level!
I am delighted to bring you two pieces of good news from Year 4 this week.
