Wednesday - Make predictions

See you at 9.40am on Teams for the live lesson.


Today we are learning to make predictions. Predictions are sensible guesses based on what you can see, what you know and any words that might give you a clue. We will be looking at the front cover of our new story 'Poles Apart' to see if we can predict what this story might be about.


Activity -  Complete the predictions worksheet, making sensible guesses based on what you can see in the picture and the title. 

Thursday - Sequence a story

Don't forget out live lesson at 9.40am on Teams.


Today you will listen to our new story 'Poles Apart.' We will the look at some of the key picture in the story to see if we can sequence them. This means putting them in the correct order. We will look at time words (or time conjunctions), to help us when ordering the story.


Activity - Carefully cut out the pictures from our story and stick them in the correct order on the sequencing worksheet. Can you add a time word under each picture e.g. One cold day, Next, Then, After, After that, Eventually, Later, Finally.

If you can not print them, that is ok, you  can look at the pictures and talk about which order they go in. 

There is also the power point which you can use to remind you of the order of the story and time words.


You will find a link below where you can listen to Miss Beale reading the story to you. You can use this to help you remember the order of the story, or to check you have your pictures in the correct order.
