We will be using these three different texts to drive our end of day reading sessions next half term:
We will become very familiar with these books, read them regularly, ask many questions about the stories and retell them.
For our fiction text, we will be using The Three Billy Goats Gruff, the children will be learning this story to support our understanding of story creation. For our non-fiction text, we will be writing instructions.
