Billy's Bucket


We will begin our English journey by looking at the book 'Billy's Bucket' by Kes Gray and Garry Parsons. This is a fun book about a young boy who gets a bucket for his birthday. 


In Guided Reading we will be:

  • Developing our love of reading by reading this text,
  • Predicting what will happen next,
  • Sequencing events,
  • Inferring how a character is feeling,
  • Questioning characters,
  • Using role play


In English we will be:

  • Focusing on capital letters 
  • Practising our handwriting and using our books


In addition to these sessions we will be learning our daily phonics, spelling rules and handwriting
