Text: Dr Xargle's Book of Earthlets


This is the second week of Take One Book, where we have been taking inspiration from the book 'Dr Xargle's Book of Earthlets'.

Last week we wrote instructions on how to look after an Earthlet by using the language and ideas from the text.

This week we are aiming to write some information on how aliens live and what their needs are. These are the learning objectives for our activities:

  • To use a shared text as a model for writing.

  • To write down key words and ideas.

  • To choose appropriate words and phrases to describe.

  • To expand sentences using co-ordinating conjunctions or, and, but.

  • To proof read for errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation.

  • To publish a piece of work.



Week Commencing 02.5.22


Guided Reading 


This week we will be trying to read some shorter texts on our own. We are practising answering questions more independently.

VIPERS (Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Evaluate, Retrieve and Sequence) these are the different reading skills that we are practising.
