Y3 / Y4 The Abominables (by Eva Ibbotson) p.13-17 whole class guided reading. Word work, and differentiated retrieval and inference questions.

Start this 3-4 day section either with the word work (so that the children are familiar with the new words and can look out for them) or by reading pages 13-17.

Address any tricky words by trying to read/understand them in the context of the question. We also had 2 pairs of children in ‘Dictionary Corner’ that raced to find the definitions when we came across our word work words (displayed up on the board) – this worked quite well.

Next, move on to the differentiated retrieval questions and finally the differentiated inference questions.
