Tuesday 12th January

What are we doing today?

Reading 

Don’t forget your 30minutes of reading. Also Mrs Atkinson will be holding a live story time session today at 1pm - please join us using the link sent to you on ParentPay. 

Stone Age Boy 

Today, we will try and do a little evaluating. This involves working out whether or not the text works for the reader.

It's a good idea to talk about it with other people before you write anything down.

This is because sharing ideas can sometimes help you feel more certain about your own.

I am going to show you the last page, where the boy has grown up.

‚Äč

Here, the boy has become an archaeologist. He spends his time looking for signs of Om and her people.

To evaluate this, we need to decide whether it's a good ending or not. Discuss this with people in your household.

  1. What makes it a good/not good ending?
  2. What would make it a more satisfactory (pleasing) ending?
  3. Can you write down an alternative (different) ending that would be just as good or even better?

Write down your answers, and email them over.

Can't wait to hear about your ideas!
