For reading this afternoon I would like you to read a book to an adult. Record the following in your writing book.
Whilst reading, please can you select some tricky vocabulary words from your text and clarify these words. What do they mean? Why are they used? Use the internet to help you if you don’t know what they mean.
Also, whilst reading, look at some difficult explanation phrases you might not understand and ask a parent what they mean. If you are still struggling, type it in google and write down what you find.
At the end of your reading session, I would like you to summarise what has happened. What did you learn? What did you not expect?
When you’ve done that, take some time to just relax and read for another 5 or 10 minutes. Enjoy your reading time.
