This week we are looking at Whatever Next by Jill Murphy.
Here are some activities you can do at home:
1- Read/watch the story again.
Discuss the part of the story about baby bear having a picnic.
Who had had a picnic before? What did you need?
Sit in a circle and lay a blanket out.
Pretend you are baby bear, what would you need to take to the moon for your picnic?
Can you write a sentence - I would need... (e.g cup, drink, biscuit)
When writing with you child it is to be expected that they write would - 'wud' this is fine and they are using their phonics knowledge!
Can they remember to use finger spaces and a full stop?
2- Talk about what we have in our cupboards at home.
What can you see in the cupboard in Whatever Next? Hat, mop, coat, box, bag etc
Have a look at the document below.
Can you write a sentence starting with
I can see a...
Have a go.
What do you need at the end of the sentence?
