Two sets of reading tasks adapted from a Jan 6 2022 Sky News report about imminent cold weather, including thundersnow, in the UK .

Hastily put together after New Year for those that are looking for topical start of term resources. Thus there is no detailed curriculum mapping but an answer sheet may be available later (resource contributors only - please ask if one would be helpful). Topics covered include: organisational features, spelling and vocabulary, purpose and style, and reading for detail.
