Today, we are going to take a look at a new text.

The book is called “Letters from the Lighthouse” by Emma Carroll.


Your task today is to take a look at the front cover (see image on the word document) and use your inference skills to predict what the book is going to be about. Write a small paragraph to explain your prediction - there are some questions for you to answer which may help you with your ideas.

After you have made your prediction, read the blurb on the back of the book (image on word document). Make a note of any questions you may have (for example: Why can’t Olive remember anymore?), if your prediction has changed or any vocabulary that interests / stands out to you.

This can be typed up on the word document or you can write it in your exercise book.
