Writing - Reading - Book Talk
We are focusing on the story 'Look Up' by Nathan Bryon. During this story we meet a hilarious, science-mad chatterbox called Rocket. She believes that she is going to be the greatest astronaut, star-catcher, space-traveller that has ever lived! But... will she be able to convince us and her big brother. Will she be able to convince her big brother to stop looking down at his phone and start LOOKING UP at the stars?
This is a fantastic book which allows the children to explore science and space. It is a heart-warming, inspirational picture book that will keep us all engaged and eager to join Rocket on her mission.
During our Book Talk lessons we are developing our predicting and inferencing skills whilst reading this book.
