Positive, Respectful and Safe



Follow the reading lesson by clicking on the link below based on ‘The Worst Witch’ by Jill Murphy. There are some follow-up activities too. You will need to practise your reading and listening skills before thinking about your impressions of characters, evidence in the text and your predictions. Everything you need is within the lesson, except a pen and paper, and you of course!

There are lots of reading activities to complete in Around the World this week. Why not find out about the Javan rhino from Indonesia (Day 51) or discover more about the problem of plastic waste in Malaysia (Day 52)?


For the next two weeks, we will be working on a ‘Journey to the Jungle.’ This is a Talk 4 Writing booklet which takes you to the jungle of Oreno – although it is perhaps not quite how you might imagine it! There are some tricky words to discover and we will look at synonyms – words that have similar meaning. You can find out more about these in the separate 'Using a Thesaurus' lesson (link below.) After you have completed the comprehension in the booklet, you will be guided to write a special list poem using a range of writing devices and there is a great imaginative drawing activity too. If you can reach Page 11 (Explorer’s Log) this week, that would be fantastic but don’t worry if you can’t. To access the booklet, click on the link below:
