Good morning Kangaroos and Giraffes.

Phonics

Today in phonics, we would like you to make up some alien names, using the letter groups that we have been looking at this week –        igh, ar, -ue and -ue.

Can you write the alien names in your workbook and draw a picture of what the alien might look like?

Can you write a silly sentence about your alien?

English

This week you went out exploring in the rain forest and discovered a new creature. You have told us what it is called, where it lives and what it likes to eat.

Today in your workbooks, we would like you to tell us some fun and interesting facts about your creature. You could tell us:

  • What a group of the creatures is called.
  • Where it likes to hide.
  • What other animals are its friends or enemies.
  • Something that the creature really likes or does not like to do.

Remember to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Take extra care with your handwriting today too.
