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.

Day 2 Hold a sentence this can be found in the grey box. Read the sentence to your child and ask them to repeat it and tell them how many words in the sentence. Again this must be completely independent.


This is a two-part task.

Firstly, think about how much Norman wanted to be friends with the snails and how he felt when he was not allowed to join in their games. What can you do to help a friend who feels left out?

Secondly, in the story, Norman is very creative. He uses a donut as a snail shell. What are some other ideas Norman can use for a shell? Draw your ideas and label.


I have put an instruction sheet on with what to do for your maths activity today. You need a square piece of paper, fat felt tip pens and a good pen for writing.


I have put a few ideas together for today’s job. Be as creative as you can be.

Make your own snail/slug

Design a new flying machine to help Norman fly around the sky

Make model snails from pasta shells with cut out paper bodies.

In your outdoor area play a version of ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf?’ The children pretending to be slugs and snails, edge forwards calling ‘What’s the time, Mr Bird(Thrush)? Adult to say various o clock times and so on. Once you decide it’s dinner time, turn quickly and chase all off the minibeasts back to the start.

Spring for Birds - You should be able to read lots of these words (this can be read throughout the week). Should develop confidence and fluency.
