Key Book

This half term, we are reading The Gruffalo.

If you click on the link below, we hope you can watch The Gruffalo with your child. Afterwards, can your child talk about what the book is about? Also, can your child say if they like the book and why?

Additionally, can you learn the Gruffalo song?

For Phonics, we are learning the following phonemes: s-a-t-p-i-n-m-n-d-cc-k-e-u-r

We are learning how to write these phonemes, as well as blending words with them. If you would like to practise at home, please check out the Little Wandle YouTube channel.

For Maths, we will be exploring numbers to 10, counting to 10 and ordering to 10. Check out some of the fun games on the Top Marks website.

Family Challenge

Can you go for a walk together in your local area? Can you spot any clues that the Gruffalo might have been around?
