Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 


During our lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we are going to be using Poetry. As we have explored in class, poetry can come in lots of different forms! During our lessons we will be looking at poems and some songs, but remember...if we are using song you need to read the lyrics before listening to the song. Then listen carefully to the lyrics because that is the poetry! 

To be able to make a prediction using inference.


What is a prediction? 

Prediction is when you make a guess, using the information that you have, about something that might happen. For today's lesson we are using prediction to guess what will happen next. 


What is inference?

Inference is using all of the information that you have available to make your idea. This could be from the text or pictures. 


Today we are going to be using the text from the Ice cat which is attached above. Read it through and then have a go at answering the question below, remember to explain your answers!
