Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope that you have all had a great weekend? I have.

I sat in my back garden yesterday and read a book from start to finish. It took me a long time and I got a bit sunburnt so I now have a bright red face. My legs are still bright white though – they never go nice and brown!

It is the start of a new week and the start of a new pack of work. We are moving onto the story of Little Red Riding Hood which has got that naughty wolf in it again! It might be a good idea for you to write your own story this week about a big bad wolf who tries to do something terrible but gets into trouble.

First though, I want you to sit somewhere quiet with your mummy or your daddy or an older brother or sister and listen to them read the ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ story to you. You might be able to read some of the words yourself, especially if you Fred talk them and blend the sounds together. It’s important that today, you hear the story so that you know what it is all about.

Next, I want you to find the pages in the pack that are stapled together and have the characters from the story all around the border. At the top of the first sheet it says

‘Red Riding Hood takes a cake for her Grandma…’

I want you to write the first part of the story on this page, in your own words and then draw and colour in a picture to go with it. If you write a lot, then you can turn over and carry on writing on the back. You can use the word mat to help you spell some of the story words. Don’t worry about your spelling. Just try your best, Fred Talk the words and have a go.

Now I would like you to cut out the food that Red Riding Hood could take for Grandma and stick it in the basket. Be careful when you are cutting and take your time.

Then I would like you to find the black and white sheet that has a basket and different foods all across the top. See if you can write the names of the foods on the basket and then colour the pictures in carefully, making sure you choose the right colours.

Maths - You are going to be learning about halving this week. If you halve a number then you share a number of objects between two and count one half of them. Look at my example.

Now I would like you to have a look at the activity about the pirates’ treasure. Cut the coins out and stick them in the treasure chests to help you. Find half of each amount.

When you have finished all of this learning you can colour in some of the pictures if you want to. You may want to choose an activity from the new Art Activities, Building and Modelling, Exploring and Measuring, Helping Round the Home, Make Believe and Play or the Movement activity sheets that are in the Week 2 pack.

These extra activity sheets have to last you all week so don’t do them all at once! You can choose which ones you do and when you do them just like last week. If you have some left over from last week then you can choose from those too.

Have a fantastic day

Mrs Abram
