Phonics: Our sound yesterday was the trigraph ‘ear’ – three letters together that make one sound. Have a look at the activities below, you can choose which one you want to complete to practise reading the ‘ear’ sound.

Literacy: This week the children’s aim is to create a new version of the book (Fancy Dress Jungle) about animals that live in a different habitat (e.g. Fancy Dress Ocean, Fancy Dress Desert, etc).

LO: As a writer, I will be able to make up a character for my story.

Refer to ‘How to write a story’ by Simon Cheshire pages 6 and 7 about imagination and why it is important.

Complete activity on page 8 and 9 (children to sketch the scene onto a piece of paper or use template). Have a look at each other’s sketches and discuss the importance of adjectives and imagination. Activity from book I’d like the children to make up a character/characters today. Read Making up a character and model completing this one together (the children will then invent their own character on the sheet below).

Activity: Now have a go at completing your own spider diagram about your made up character/characters. Character sheet

(Please note the name in the middle of the spider diagram is for your character’s made up name – not your own name) 🙂
