This term we are building our stamina for reading by engaging with a range of texts, both fiction and non-fiction. We will be developing our retrieval skills, looking in the text to find answers to questions and using what we know about characters and events to make predictions about what will happen next, and infer how the characters might be feeling.
In Guided Reading we will be exploring a range of fiction and non-fiction texts to develop our understanding of life in the Arctic and in Antarctica. We will be exploring information texts about polar animals and Antarctica to understand the purpose of non-fiction texts and retrieve our own facts.
We will then be exploring extracts from "The Last Polar Bears" by Harry Horse. Keep an eye out for photos of children's responses to this text.
