Background knowledge of the world around us and similar stories help so much when trying to understand a new text....we've been helped out by our Harry Potter experts this week who have been able to fill in the missing gaps about Harry and his friends.
To support their understanding of what they are reading, the children have used their visualisation skills to draw a part of the story.
The children have been thinking like detectives this week both asking and trying to answer questions about Alice...
The children have asked questions and made predictions about this well known character:
How did Alice know the potion was safe?
"Alice had listened to her grown-ups and the potion did not have a poison label on it!"
What will the potion do if she drinks it?
" Well, the last one made her taller so this one will make her smaller because she needs to get through that tiny door"
Autumn 2 - Love to Read
This term our class book is George's Marvellous medicine - I wonder if George will ever be able to replicate his mind blowing potion?
Autumn Term 1 - Love to read
This term our class book is based on the poem - Beowulf. The children have been very impressed by the battle skills of our hero. I wonder if he really existed?
