To use our prior knowledge to make sense of text


INDEPENDENT LEARNING options

  • Finish reading the article The secret language of dolphins (do some thinking about how you are using prior knowledge to help you make meaning)

  • This year is the NATIONAL YEAR OF READING. Explore their Love2read website, in particular the Love Reading for children section. Find a great blog to recommend to others. Are there any programs or competitions we could participate in? Find out about the Ambassadors.

  • Use the thinking we did last week to create a poster for others explaining visualising (definition, slogan, logo). The poster must be WORTHY of putting on display.
