Reading and Comprehension

Story time and Reading this half term

Our book for this half term that links to our topic is King of the Cloud Forests by Michael Morpurgo. If you have your own copy, why not read along during our story time or read it as part of our reading for pleasure time during the day.


During the Second World War, Ashley and Uncle Sung must flee across the icy landscape of the Himalayas. Food is scarce and they are trapped by a terrible storm. Once the storm ends, Uncle Sung leaves to find help. When a strange visitor finds Ashley and takes him higher into the mountains, he wonders if he will ever see his family again.


Spend time with a 'Reading for Pleasure' book at some point today and see if other family members want to join in with you. Or you could look for a book to read here


I have also included below a list of books to read before you leave Primary School. The first page is for 5-8 year olds and the second page is for 9-11 year olds. Please have a look and see how many you have read or could read - especially while we are at home more.


Enjoy poetry?

If you enjoy poetry or want to listen to some great poetry, try this website that has lots of poets reading poems for you to listen to. There is a featured poet each day and why not get adults to listen with you.

Why not check out poems by Michael Rosen. There is a link to his poem here as well as his website.
