- How did you feel when you were talking to her?
- Why did you tell her a different route to Granny’s house?
- What did you do to Granny?
- What are you hoping to do to Little Red Riding Hood?
- Use the pronoun ‘I’
- Use subordinating conjunctions (because, if, when)
Resources to help:
Reading and Phonics
Children should spend 20 minutes at least three times per week using Lexia or Reading Plus.
Some children should take part in daily phonics from Ruth Miskin (this may be good for a recap of their phonics knowledge!)
In Maths, we will spend the week focusing on a particular topic e.g. shape or place value. Activities will then be set on Mathletics that are based upon this subject.
Topic – Measurement (Length and Height)
This week, we will be learning about measuring length and height using centimetres (cm) and metres (m).
Each day, work through the PowerPoint and then complete the activities.
