Day 1


This week we are reading, “The kiss that missed!” Click on the link above to listen to a teacher read the story.

Then, use the pictures in the literacy folder below to put the story in order. You could act out the story too!

Each day please could you read your school book or a book with an adult at home.


During the week, it is also important to continue learning phonics.


Go to the Phonics play website and play the free phonics games for phase 5. Picnic on Pluto is a good game to practice real and nonsense words.

Day 2

First, recap the story. Then, find the comprehension activity in the folder below. Please chose the worksheet that seems at the correct difficulty level for your child.

Day 3

Today, we will be learning what makes a good story! Read the example story in the literacy folder. Then, see if you can hunt down the key vocabulary and talk about what they mean. Follow the instructions on the worksheet to make a story mountain.

Day 4

Today, we will be making a creepy setting for our own story. When the kiss missed and flew away, where would you like it to go?  Through a desert? Wild wood? Thick jungle? Haunted house? Creepy cave?  Make a spider diagram of ideas. Then, draw a setting for your own place.

After, can you describe your place? Look at my example to help you.

“He galloped after the kiss all the way to a thick, tropical jungle. It was dark. It was dangerous. It was hot.”

Day 5

Today, we will be thinking about animals that the kiss may fly by in your story.

In my jungle there was a snake, tiger and elephant.


“…the kiss flew past a hissing snake with sharp fangs.

…the kiss whizzed past a huge tiger with a loud roar.

The kiss whirled round and round a grey elephant with huge tusks.”

Can you think of three animals? Then, have a go at describing each of them using ‘with’. E.g.

a huge tiger with a loud roar.


Follow the link to the second lesson about materials.

Then, could you try to draw a castle with all the important parts?
