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.


Read Tadpole’s Promise. Display story-pegs (resources). Sequence the story and use phonics/HFWs to read each sentence. Rehearse and retell the story with expression. Ask your child/children if they are happy or sad about the ending of the story? Make a note of their response. Think about how you would change the ending? What way would you choose to change it if you could? Write your alternative ending on your worksheet.

Story pegs

Enlarge, cut out and display the pictures from Tadpole’s Promise.

Hang a piece of string across the whiteboard and secure it tightly.

Sequence the pictures and read each sentence.

Peg the pictures onto the string in the order decided.

Encourage children to justify their ideas using evidence from the story.

Re-sequence the illustrations if necessary.

Retell the story: read each sentence aloud!


Day 3 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. Choose the ones you think are easier to complete at home.


Make a hungry frog

Children will enjoy creating their own hungry frog and feeding it a delicious fly. They will rehearse painting, cutting, sticking and sculpting techniques and will explore the language associated with designing and making. Follow the instructions on the sheet and email a picture of your work.
