Wednesday 2nd December

Guided Reading:

Mrs Matthews reading the chapter of Boy called "Bicycle and the sweet shop"

As you listen be thinking and record your thoughts about:

1)  Which of Roald Dahl's books were inspired by the stories in this chapter? 

2)  Why do you think that?  Which people does he meet who are used as inspiration for characters in his books?  Why do you think that?

3)  What do you think about the character of Thwaites?  What is he like?  You could write a character description of him and then say what your opinion of him is?  Try to imagine he was in our class - would you be friends with him or not?  Why do you think that?


The chapter is split into smaller chunks so it was easy to put on the website - don't worry it wasn't a really long chapter!
