Today in English, we introduced our new text ‘My name is River’. We introduced the front cover piece by piece so that each group could make a prediction on what they thought our class text would be about.
Once we found out what our text was, we read the blurb to discover whether some of our predictions were accurate. We then read Chapter 1 together at the Reading Cafe whilst enjoying juice and biscuits!
Finally, we conducted a silent discussion answering lots of questions to check that we had understood the text. Fantastic work Crew Knowles!
Why not listen to the Author, Emma Read, read the first chapter of her book?
