If possible, please have colouring pencils/ felt tips and plain paper to hand for the live lesson. 

We will be doing Guided Reading on Thursday. We have attached the text  (Pythons) today, so that your child reads it, or so that you can read it with your child, before the session.  Please look at the 1 star text (in the bottom left-hand corner), as this is what we will use in the live lesson. If you child would like to read the 2 star or 3 star document, as an additional task, then this is fine.  


We will deliver  a short phonics lesson, in the live lesson.
