This week I will be reading the book 'Flat Stanley' every day and setting tasks based around 5 key reading skills: inference, prediction, retrieval, sequencing and vocabulary. Here are the reading dogs to remind you what these are!
Monday 1st March 2021
LO: Use my inference skills to work out a character's feelings
Mild - please draw a picture of Stanley and write adjectives around the outside to describe how he might have felt. Please write at least 5 adjectives.
Spicy - please draw a picture of Stanley then describe how you think he, his Mum and Dad and Arthur felt, using full sentences. Feel free to use the sentence frames below.
Flaming Hot - please write a diary entry describing what has happened to Stanley and explaining how he felt. You could either finish my diary entry below or write your own.
Tuesday 2nd March 2021
LO: To retrieve information
Now please have a go at making your own Stanley cut-out, using paper or cardboard. Please act out chapter 2 using your own Stanley. We would love to see some photos or videos of his adventures!
CHALLENGE - Act out the whole story to this point, and show what might happen next, using your Stanley.

LO: understand how vocabulary is used in the text
Thursday 4th March 2021
Today we are working on prediction. Like predicting Pip, we will be trying to work out what might happen in the story in the future. Please watch this video to hear the next chapter and to find out more.
Tasks for today
Please predict what might happen in the final chapter, using your knowledge of Flat Stanley to help you.
Please choose from the following tasks:
Mild: Act out the final chapter, using your own homemade Flat Stanley (or act it out with members of your family!)
Spicy: Draw pictures of what might happen and write sentences underneath.
Flaming hot: Write the whole of the next chapter!
Please take photos of whatever you get up to and attach them to this Google Form!
