Class book

We are really enjoying reading Tom Palmer's book 'Defenders: The Killing Ground', as part of our Vikings topic this term.
We are lucky enough to have a class set which allows us to read aloud as a whole class, taking turns, whilst following the text individually.
We do this daily, allowing us to explore the book collectively; asking questions, exploring the language used and the authors possible intentions.
This is super for building confidence when reading aloud and also for broadening their understanding of the story. It is also a good way to develop key comprehension skills such as retrieval of information and sequencing events accurately.
We often do this around home time, so please ask your children if they can tell you any of the names of the characters and how they feel about the book.
