  • Revise the following: author, illustrator, front of the book, back of the book, title, blurb, spine. Continue to focus on recognising the difference between a letter, a word and a sentence plus recognising the difference between a line of writing and a sentence. How many capital letters can you find? Can you retell your stories from start to finish in your own words? Continue to read with expression.


  • Ask an adult to read 'Chicken Licken' story. (See link below). This links to our new WAU topic on The Farm. Try to retell the story in your own words.
  • RHYMING WORDS: Talk about the rhyming words in the story Chicken Licken. Can you think of words that rhyme with your Christian name or your surname? Can you think of words that rhyme with my surname?
  • Tell an adult which word is the odd one out in each row its the word that does not rhyme with the other words.
  • Dog, fog, log, leg.
  • Me, see, saw, tree.
  • Fat, fit, cat, bat.
  • Ton, tin, win, pin.


  • In class we asked lots of questions. Try to think of some questions starting with these words: Where, When, What, Who and Why. Here are some examples Why did Chicken Licken decide to go to see the king?   Who did he meet first?  Where should the animals have gone?
  • Try to think up your own sentences about Chicken Licken using the word mat above. How many sentences can you write?
  • Remember to start each sentence with a capital letter, use finger spaces between each word and finish with a full stop. Read your sentences to an adult. Give yourself a star and put your thumbs up! yes I am so proud of you! Please continue to send in more photos of your writing and drawings, they are fantastic!smiley

This week, Id like you to use your knowledge of sounds and words to complete the following activities.  Join the word to the picture (sets 3 and 4).

Choose a different day to complete each activity. You do not need to print the pages, you can point to the answers. 


  • Write the LETTER you hear?
  • Adult to call out the following letters and you write them on your whiteboard or in your Literacy book: a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l / m.

  • Adult to call out the following words and you write them on your whiteboard or in your Literacy book: and, dad, look, to, was, the.

  • Adult to call out the following sentence and you write it on your whiteboard or in your Literacy book: The duck has a big red hat. Try to draw the picture to match this sentence.


Look at the picture below and answer the questions.


  • This week ask an adult to help you to read the instructions to make ‘Top Hats’. Cut out the instructions / photos and match, then put them in order to explain the process. Ask an adult to help you to make some. You will need Smarties, marshmallows, chocolate and mini bun cases.  Be careful when melting the chocolate! If you are not able to print or make them, remember, what I’m looking for, is for you to explain the process to your family. Maybe you could write the instructions in your own words. This ‘recipe’ can be used for the baking competition but I’ve included other recipes that you might prefer to use instead! Have fun!wink
