Phonics

Remember to keep practising sounds and story green words and speedy green words. You don’t have to do all at once, just the ones you need the most practise with.

Literacy

Read ‘Bog Baby’ by Jeanne Willis without showing the picture on the front of the book up to the point where the children first find the bog baby. Pause and ask: what do you think the bog baby might look like? Can you tell your talk partner? Suggest they listen hard to the next two or three pages and paint a picture in their mind’s eye.

Carry on reading but without showing the illustration to the point where they take him home and hide him in the shed (page 9).

Ask child, using the worksheet to draw what they think the Bog Baby looks like. In the class I would read the description, ‘size of a frog only round and blue’ and ask them to draw this as big as they could on their page. Then, ‘boggly eyes and a spiky tail’, continue to read to page 9 until they have produced a version of their Bog Baby.

Maths

Day 2 The very busy spider. There is a variety of activities that can be completed in relation to the story. You don’t have to complete them all. Choose the ones you think are easier to complete at home.

UtW/PD/EAD/PSED

Make a Bog Baby. We will be using blue felt to make our own Bog Baby. This is a sewing activity so will take a few days to complete, therefore I don’t expect to see any until the end of the week. I have posted some pictures of ones that have been made before by other children to give you some idea of size and shape. Sewing is a great skill to develop fine motor skills.
