Practise the words on the first two slides of the PowerPoint. I would usually have these on a flash card that the children would recognise as Story Green words and Red words and the second slide is the Speedy Green words.
Red Ditty Book 5 Ditty 1 Pick it up
Get your child to read the story on the last three slides. Instructions are on top of the page to help.
Complete a sentence. This needs to be completely independent. The missing words are all words that they have read in the story.
This week our story is Yucky Worms by Vivian French. Listen to the story and think about why it might be dangerous to be a worm. Check out pages 16-17 on the PowerPoint and you should find out lots of reasons.
I have uploaded a YouTube video of this story read by someone else as it highlights the pages better for you to be able to pause the story and get the information that you will need throughout the week.
You will also find photographs of the pages that I am talking about.
I have put an instruction sheet on with what to do for your maths activity today. No equipment needed for this activity today. Only print first page as second page has the answers.
Make a worm
Below are a number of ideas for making your own worm, using different media and materials. The choice is entirely up to you!
Make worms from salt dough or clay and paint in various shades.
Make worm sock puppets with brown socks with googly eyes.
Create worm tracks with string, wool or cooked spaghetti dipped in paint and trailed or wriggled along paper.
Racing worms- paper craft
Wakey Wakey - You should be able to read lots of these words (this can be read throughout the week). Should develop confidence and fluency.
