Day 1

English:  You will need to access Oxford Owl free eBook library.  (You will need to make an account if you haven't already done so.)


Go to Oxford Level 5 in the drop down box and search for the book Kipper and the Trolls.

Look at the front cover - Can you predict what might happen in the story?  What is a troll? How do you think Kipper is feeling?  Why do you think this? Can you think of adjectives to describe the troll?


Ask your child to read pages 1,2 and 3 then follow up with this discussion - Can you tell me three different types of punctuation? (They might say finger spaces, capital letter, exclamation mark.)  Focus on the inverted commas (speech marks) and discuss expression of how Mum would say the sentence.  Practise saying the sentence together.


Look at Mum in the picture - How do you think she is feeling? Why has she got her arms like that?  Read page 4 and 5 to your child whilst they follow along.  Discuss the use of didn't - why does it have an apostrophe?  Discuss it means that there is a letter missing and two words have become one word (did not.)


Let your child read page 6 and 7, but don't let them press the turn button - talk about where the magic adventure may take them.


Before asking your child to read pages 8 and 9, discuss what they can see in the picture.  Do they like it?  Who might live there? How does the bridge and the stream make them feel?  Why does it make them feel that?


Read page 10-13 together. Practise using troll voices.  Focus on the word 'sang' think about changing the way they talk like a troll to match that word.  


Don't read anymore for today.  You will continue with the guided read tomorrow.
