3,4A Class News

Friday 26 April 2024

This term, our new class novel in Y3/4 is ‘The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane’. In Reading, we have used an extract from the book this week to practise different skills, such as understanding new vocabulary and retrieving information from the text. We have also been practising our reading fluency with a short poem about York – linking to our Geography and Writing units. We always discuss any new words the children are curious about – this week I felt very old trying to explain what the poet meant by York being ‘top of the pops’!

Help at home by continuing to listen to your child read and asking them questions as they go to help develop their understanding.
