READING: We are now really absorbed in our class story EVERNIGHT, by Ross Mackenzie. This week we will share chapters 16-20 and continue hearing about the adventures of our characters: Lara, Double Eight and Mrs Hester. The first page of each chapter will be on the padlet as a photo which means that you can read along (tune in) with me as I read it on YouTube. (If there is anyone wo hasn't started listening, listen along from chapter 1 and catch up with us) On our edublog https://stonewithwoodford.edublogs.org/ there is a new padlet where everybody needs to complete a written response after listening each day. Above the padlet it explains what you need to write. Mrs McCalmont and me will post comments and you can also add comments to each other's posts some days.
