Throughout this week the children will be reading the yellow book Lost’ and completing some tasks like we do in school. These will be spread out and we will revisit different parts of the book on different days. Follow this link to find the PDF of the book ‘Lost’:


Today’s tasks with the book are:

  • Practise the red words on page 6. Children should practise reading these speedily.
  • Child to read the book again (pages 9-15). Each day they read it they should start to become more confident and will be able to read some words more quickly.
  • On page 16 there are some questions to talk about with your child. Read the questions to your child and encourage them to find the answer in the book. They may have to re-read the page to help them find the answer.
