Day 1

Last week, we watched the Wallace and Gromit film, ‘A grand day out!’

Today, you will be reading the example diary entry with an adult and hunting the key vocabulary.

Then, you will discuss and answer the comprehension questions linked to the text.

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. This weeks focus is: split o_e, u_e, i_e and e_e.
