Something a bit different today Year 6. We've finished reading our amazing text, The Viewer, so we're going to have a look at a BBC lesson all about discussing what we have read.
To share our thoughts and feelings about a book and give reasons for our opinions.
This lesson includes:
two videos to help us discuss what you read
three activities, plus an extra challenge
Work your way through the information and videos on the web page and then have a go at the activities:
