Today you need to watch the PowerPoint that I put on and practise all the sounds. Continue to use the set 2 stretchy sounds booklet. This week we are concentrating only on the ar sound. In the booklet work through pages 21-22.


Read through the story again or listen to the story. Look at the different stages in the story as to how Tadpole changed each time he met up with the caterpillar. Talk to your adult about what happens in the story at each stage.  Write a report that explains how tadpoles change into frogs. Tell your adult your sentence and insure that it makes sense. Write a simple sentence using your phonics to help spell words that you are using.


Day 4 The Snail and the Whale. There is a variety of activities that can be completed in relation to the story. You don’t have to complete them all. Chose the ones you think are easier to complete at home.


Life Cycle of a Frog.

After discussing and observing the life cycle of a frog in different ways (for example non-fiction texts, stories, PowerPoint, small world play, songs and real life observation) this activity can be used to record the life cycle or assess the children's understanding.Show the children the pre-made example and also the different parts of the spin wheel.

Tell them that they are going to make their own spin wheel to show the life cycle of a frog!

Begin by looking at the pictures for each part of the cycle and ask which one should go first on their spin wheel.

Help the children to stick the picture onto the wheel and then ask what happens next.  Encourage the children to use the new vocabulary; the words can also be matched to the picture and added to the wheel if desired.

Continue asking the children what happens in the life cycle as they stick all four pictures

onto the wheel.

Once the base of the wheel is completed with pictures and words (if required) the top part can then be attached using a split pin.

Encourage the children to use the wheel to turn through the life cycle and describe what happens at each part to an adult or friend.


Boris and Sid are bad - You should be able to read lots of these words (this can be read throughout the week). Should develop confidence and fluency.
