Reading and Comprehension


I would like you to choose a story to read from our Virtual library. Here is the link:

Click on the front cover of the story of your choice and remember that this can be recorded in your reading record.



The book we will be looking at this week is ‘The Gruffalo’s Child’. The author of our story is Julia Donaldson and the illustrator is Axel Scheffler.

Yesterday I asked you think about what you think the Gruffalo’s child should do next after meeting the fox. She thought that it had all been a joke and that there was no big bad mouse. Tell someone at home what you thought the Gruffalo’s child should do next?



Read the pages below.

Task: Design a midnight feast for the Gruffalo’s child. What would she eat?


Here is my example: 

Challenge: Can you label your pictures and add some adjectives to give more detail?

Answer these comprehension questions:


1. What is the Gruffalo’s child planning to do?


2. What does the word ‘unclenched’ mean? What part of the body did the Gruffalo’s child unclench? 


3. What does the word ‘beckoned’ mean? Can you think of any other words that we use to get someone’s attention?
