Create a reading river
draw a river and write along the sides all the books that you have read AND books that you have had read to you. (You may need to ask your parent/carer to help you to remember books from when you were younger). It would also be useful to look at book lists on websites to trigger your memory. Think about books that you’ve read in school too - Owl Babies, Rainbow Fish, etc. Remember to include Nursery Rhymes and Traditional Stories. Remember that book titles are proper nouns and MUST have capital letters. (Children have been shown examples of Reading Rivers in class)
Complete the reading comprehension activity ‘The Park’ (which I accidentally printed on A3 paper).

An extract from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to support wand design ideas:
"Hold out your arm. That's it." He measured Harry from shoulder to finger, then wrist to elbow, shoulder to floor, knee to armpit and round his head. As he measured, he said, "Every Ollivander wand has a core of a powerful magical substance, Mr. Potter. We use unicorn hairs, phoenix tail feathers, and the heartstrings of dragons. No two Ollivander wands are the same, just as no two unicorns, dragons, or phoenixes are quite the same. And of course, you will never get such good results with another wizard's wand."
Harry suddenly realized that the tape measure, which was measuring between his nostrils, was doing this on its own. Mr. Ollivander was flitting around the shelves, taking down boxes.
"That will do," he said, and the tape measure crumpled into a heap on the floor. "Right then, Mr. Potter. Try this one. Beechwood and dragon heartstring. Nine inches. Nice and flexible, just take it and give it a
