A little reminder about how important it is to read every day

and now is the perfect time to read your favourite books you have at home!

Don't forget if you are on AR, you can access the AR Reading scheme at home too.  

Check your book is on the scheme and then complete a quiz. Just follow the links below.

You can also look for books to read on myON if you are running out of books at home.


When using myON, you need to make sure you are using the UK version, or you won't be able to quiz on the books you read!

  • Go onto myON and click 'start reading'
  •  Hit 'search.'
  • Click on 'language' and then select 'English (UK)

This will ensure that all the books they then choose to read they will be able to quiz on.


This week you have a non-fiction reading comprehension to complete.


This text is meant to be read and shared with an adult, so that you can discuss what you have read and talk about any words you find tricky or don't understand. It is not meant for you to read and complete on your own.


Read the text carefully and then write the answers to each of the questions, in sentences, on a piece of paper or in a notebook.

All the questions this week follow VIPERS, like we use in class. The first 5 questions have a focus on RETRIEVAL.


V= VOCABULARY ( finding the meaning of words in context, other words that mean the same thing)

I= INFERENCE ( 'reading between the lines' and using clues from the text, without the author actually telling us.)

P= PREDICTION ( suggesting what might/could happen)

E= EXPLAIN ( giving details about what has happened)

R= RETRIEVE ( finding out the answers from the text.

S= SEQUENCE ( the order of events in the story)

( The answers are there for you at the end, and you and your grown up can check through when you have finished)


Here is your writing activity for this week. This week, you need to let your imagination run away with you again!


Remember to think carefully about;

  • your choice of interesting and exciting vocabulary( use a dictionary or thesaurus if you have one at home, or use an online version)
  •  reading through your work as you write, to check that it makes sense
  • making any changes as you write
  • Have fun!.


This week I would like you to work on some of the suffixes that we learn about in Year 2.


What is a suffix?

A suffix is a string of letters that go at the end of a root word, changing or adding to its meaning.

Suffixes can show if a word is a noun, an adjective, an adverb or a verb.


Watch the video below about suffixes.
