Reader - The School Trip’, Read the first story, ‘The St. Patrick’s Day Jumper’
You can read a page or two each day or read it all. This is the main story for the next two weeks so no need to rush through it, take your time and focus on any new words. Reading over a story a few times is very important as it helps with fluency in reading.

Continue reading any books you have at home.
