Sporle Primary Academy

Monday, 1st March

Please log on to Oxford Reading owl and read the following books -
Group 1: The Personality Potion
Group 2: White Fang
Group 3: White Fang
Group 4: Stories of Sherlock Holmes
Then, summarise what the story is about.


As it is our school book week, who better to help us with our writing than a well-known, fantastic author?! This week we will be having some help from Cressida Cowell, author of many children's books, including How To Train Your Dragon. 

First of all, watch the following videos of Cressida reading the first chapter of How To Train Your Dragon.

Then, watch her next video where you will need some paper and a pencil to complete her map task.

Once you have finished, watch Miss George's video explaining your task. You will also find the powerpoint below if you need to re-read any parts.

Please keep hold of your writing today as it will form part of a weekly unit - later in the week we will be creating our own story using parts of today's writing.
