Today we were also treated to Shane reading.
Thanks to Matthew,
who today read to us
from the page of
‘The Snow Spider’
that he had prepared:
Today we were also treated to Zac reading from ‘The Snow Spider’.
As you will hear, Zac did this very competently
and like Senan earlier in the day
showed every sign of practicing this thoroughly at home.
Sit back and relax and listen to Senan
reading another excerpt from
Jenny Nimmo’s ‘The Snow Spider’.
Well done Senan.
You read very well indeed and with excellent expression.
Well done to Isabella who read for us in class today.
She had prepared this page well for homework.
Teacher particularly liked
the expression Isabella put in her voice
when she was pretending to be Gywn’s Mum.
When Isabella finished reading this in class,
the class gave her a round of applause,
which was well deserved.
Today Jake read to us from ‘The Snow Spider’.
He prepared thoroughly at home.
A short coaching session from Adam
who is a visiting TY student on Work Experience,
improved Jake’s confidence further.
Well done Jake.
I think you read this beautifully.

Today Fiona read to us about Gywn’s Granny gardening
in the dark on a Winter’s night!
We think you will agree,
that Fiona did a REALLY GOOD job.
She read SO well
and used very effective expression.
Fiona told us she read it twice for her Granny
and three times for her Mum last night,
Then this morning she read it twice again.
All in all she practiced reading it aloud seven times
and all this preparation really paid off.
Well done Fiona.
You are an independent reader now.
Today Rebecca read to us from
‘The Snow Spider’ by Jenny Nimmo.
Rebecca read very clearly with good pronunciation
of all those tricky words and showed that she had
prepared this reading very well.
We heard how Gywn read by the light
from the glowing ‘Snow Spider’
Today it was Nicole’s turn to prepare
a page of reading from ‘The Snow Spider’.
As you will hear Nicole read very well.
In what she read to us,
we learned a little more about a mystery;
How Gywn’s older sister Bethan had disappeared
in the middle of a storm one night.
Today Clara read a 2nd excerpt
from our class novel ‘The Snow Spider’.
She prepared it at home, as part of her homework.
We think you will agree that she did a SUPER job.
JC’s visualization of Nain’s birthday gifts for Gywn.
We have started reading ‘The Snow Spider’ by Jenny Nimmo.
It is a challenging read, but a great story.
Last night we were asked to practice reading the very first page,
Julia volunteered to read it out loud on Audioboo.
Here is the podcast:
We think the talented Julia has the potential
be a famous actress.
We have many other volunteers to read so
during the term, we will be posting more podcasts
of excerpts from this exciting and magical book.
Some of the children have started watching
and they tell me that this is helping
and enjoyment of the book.
