Summer Term: English Unit - Lesson 3 Comprehension - 29/4/20

Instructions for 29/4/20

Reading: You should be able to read the WAGOLL text with real confidence by now. Imagine you are modelling how to read out loud - load up a copy of the WAGOLL (on a screen or a printed copy) and using your phone or tablet, have a go at recording yourself. Try to replace the red key vocabulary with a synonym as you read. When you have finished, play your recording back and answer these questions:

1. Did you read fluently without hesitation?

2. Did you look ahead to see how someone might be speaking so you could change your voice?

3. How did you know that you had read the text fluently?

If you can't record yourself reading, just read the WAGOLL out loud and then answer the three questions.
