Today’s activity – Choose a book/comic/newspaper to read for 20minutes.

For the last few weeks we have been working on expression. When reading what does a full stop tell you to do? What does a comma tell you to do? What does an exclamation mark tell you to do? Finally, what does inverted commas (speech marks) tell you to do?

Practice using all of the above and read your book with expression.  Once you have practiced reading with expression can you read your book aloud to an audience.

This week why don’t you ask an adult to film you reading your book with your best expression and send it to your teacher.



Look at the picture.

Write three sentences about the (subject) dog, remember, subject and then verb.

Look at the picture.

Write three sentences starting with where it is. (You can use in, over, under, inside, beside, above, behind.)

Remember, subject and then verb.

For example: On the beach there was a ship wreck.
