Literacy

Our focus in Literacy for Term 5 week 1,2 and 3 is going to be around a book called Oliver and the Seawigs by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre. Throughout the weeks Miss Godfroy and Miss Ahmed are going to be reading you the story and showing you the illustrations inside the book, just like they would if we were in school! There are some linked activities in our Art and Enquiry folders so make sure you have a look and send us pictures of your work!

 

Today we are going to be thinking about what Oliver and the Seawigs could be about. The video is going to tell you a little bit about the book, and then you need to answer the questions below.

  1. What do you predict might happen during the book?
  2. What can you see?
  3. What do we already know about Oliver and his parents?
  4. What questions would you like to ask?

 

Remember that predictions are what you think, and it does not matter if you are right or wrong. Write your answers down so that once we have read the story you can check your predictions and see if you guessed the story!
