Good morning Kangaroos and Giraffes,

Phonics

In phonics today are looking at the letter group ‘-ue’, as in glue. How many words can you think of with ‘-ue’ in?

Can you read these words? blue, true

Can you say or write a sentence with the word ‘blue’ in it, and read your sentence to a grown-up?

English

On Tuesday, we asked you to draw and label a creature that you had discovered on your rainforest adventure. Today we would like you to tell us some interesting things about the creature.

Red/Possums/Blue/Green/Wombats and Koalas – In your work books we would like you to tell us what the creature is called, where in the rain forest it lives and what it likes to eat. Is it a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore? Remember to write full sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

Take care with your handwriting too, try to keep letters the same size.

Yellow and Crocodiles – In your workbooks, and with the help of a grown up, we would like you to tell us what the creature is called, where in the rainforest it lives and what it likes to eat. Is it a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore? Try to use your phonics to sound out.
