November 13


Last week we focused on visualising during reading sessions. Visualising is when you create a movie in your mind to bring what you are reading to life! You can use the words in the text and your own prior knowledge to help you visualise.

Choose a part from your story that you are reading and describe what you see when you visualise the scene!

    Hi 3B,
    When I was reading my book, I visualised a little boy at the beach looking at a whale in the distance.

    Hi 3B, I do a lot of visualising because I read a lot of novels. When I was reading my book I visualised The Cat wearing a helmet because the text said he wore a head piece.

    Hi Mr B๐Ÿ˜Ž
    When we were doing visualising I enjoyed making the movie in my mind and I also liked the reading. When I read a chapter book with no Pictures it was fun trying to guess what the author was trying to do!

    Hi 3B, I really enjoyed learning about visualising. While we were doing it I was reading Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets . A part from it was this: Harry crossed to his bedroom on tiptoe, slipped inside, closed the door and turned to collapse on his bed. The trouble was, there was already someone sitting on it. Harry managed not to shout out, but it was a close thing. The little creature on the bed had large, bat like ears and bulging green eyes the size of tennis balls. I visualised stepping into my bedroom and seeing a tiny creature with ginormous green eyes sitting on my bed. Harry Potter books are really good for visualising because they have no pictures so it doesn’t matter what you visualise. The other good thing is if you are doing visualising,it is really easy to visualise because J.K Rowling uses really good describing words. Chelsea

    Hi mr B I really enjoyed coming along with this journey of visualising it really Made a big difference on how I see a picture in my mind because before I didn’t use the clues in the text I used the picture in the movie but I finished a Harry Potter And the deathly hollows and the movie is nothing like I pictured it in my mind. Visualising really helps me make a movie in my mind when I don’t have pictures to help me out it inspires me to be able to rely on my mind to use the clues in the text to Be able to make a movie in my mind this is a relly good strategy for making picture when you don’t have a picture in the story one last tip it’s good to have a jotter or a scrap piece of paper beside you to jot down your movie in your mind so you can later turn it into a book with those exact pictures from your mind kind regards pip

    Hi Mr Burdess,
    Harry Potter is a good book to do visualising in because it has no pictures.
