READING TASKS – Ideas and resources



Create a Celebration Reading Den.  What will your child have in there? Maybe balloons or bunting?   Can your child find any books about celebrations to enjoy in their new reading den?  Why not visit and use the class login Username: year one king david Password: Oxford owl  Look for the book Special Days Poems, look at the contents page.  Discuss what your child knows about the celebrations listed. Share some of the poems in the Reading Den.



Read the story Kipper’s Birthday. Talk to your child about the similarities and differences with their own birthday celebrations.  Design an invitation or a birthday cake for Kipper’s Birthday Party
