    This Week’s Reading Activities   


This week we have added another choice of activities- fiction or non-fiction depending on what you are reading at home!

You don’t have to do both sets of activities but you can if you want to.

  • Did you read over the weekend? What time of day suits you best to read to yourself or an adult?
  • If you are running low on books at home. Take a look here. There is a brilliant selection of eBooks which are very easy to access (you will need an adult to register an account for you first).

Fiction Activities:

Task 1: Find 5 interesting words in the text. Write down the meaning of each word then use each one in a sentence of your own.


Task 2: Draw a picture of your favourite character from the story. Write a description of who they are and what you have learnt about them.


Task 3: Design a poster for the book you have read to persuade other people to read the story.

Task 4: Click on the link below to open and read ‘What’s going on here?’ Can you look for clues to answer the questions?

Non- Fiction Activities:

Task 1:  Write down 10 words that you find interesting from your book.  Can you now write them out again in alphabetical order?


Task 2:  Draw a diagram (picture) of something you have read about in your book. Label it, then explain what it is underneath.


Task 3:  Write a letter to the author explaining what you liked about the book. Are there any ways that you think it could be made even better? 


Task 4: Read the text: Birds in your garden

Then answer the questions underneath.
