This week's reading is taken from the introduction and first chapter from 'The Boy who sang with Dragons' by Andy Shepherd. The link to the text includes the whole of the first chapter but we only need to read up to the end of page 4 to answer our questions this week. If you would like to complete the chapter independently or with an adult at the end of the week, after you have answered all the questions, please do!


On Monday, watch Ms Brown’s video for her to introduce and read the text. As you listen and read, pick out 5 unfamiliar words. After you have heard the whole text, find the definitions of these words, in a dictionary or online with an adult’s help, and write them down to make sure you understand the meaning of the text. After watching the video, you could also practise reading through with an adult or try to read through independently. 


On Tuesday, read the poem through again and then have a look at the VIPERS Questions below and answer the 'V' questions for Vocabulary.


On Wednesday, answer the 'P' questions to make Predictions.


On Thursday, answer the 'S' questions to Summarise what you have learned about the text.


On Friday, please spend some time reading for pleasure. You might like to read one of your books from home or maybe an adult can help you find something else online that you might like to read such as a comic for children, poetry or non-fiction information. You might want to complete the first chapter of this week's text, if you haven't already. Or you might want to have a look at The Children’s Poetry Archive (from last week) and find a poem to read and perform!
