Week Beginning 11th January 2021

Our Guided Reading text this week is an extract from chapter 5 of Varjak Paw - we have read this together in class. It is the part of the story where the Elder Paw fights the Gentleman's black cats and Varjak, after a struggle, makes it to the top of the wall and...Outside! There is a video of Mr. Gamage reading the whole of chapter 5 and a task for each day this week.
