Word Gap

Word Gap – this is our guided reading format in Selby class.


Communication and Language: Speaking, Listening and Understanding.

Focused task

This week the story is ‘Stick Man’.

I have attached a reading by Axel Scheffler of the story underneath.

Today I would like your child to work through putting the story back in the correct order. You can help your child to create a story board in their books. Your child needs to be able to talk through the key points of the story.

Then I would like you to help your child check their work by reading through the story.


Any work onto tapestry and their green work books please.
