This week's reading is taken from a non-fiction text, 'Blue Planet II' by Leisa Stewart Sharpe. On the extract, there are 3 lovely double pages but we are going to be focussing on the first one: 'Inhabitats of the Deep'. You can read the other pages in your own time or maybe during reading for pleasure on Friday.


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 'R' questions to Retrieve the correct information.


On Thursday, answer the 'I' questions to Interpret 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.
