Good morning everyone,


I hope you are all ok.  Today we are going to have a look at a story map of the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  This is something that we have not done before, but is chance to talk about the events in a story and put them in order.  Using language such as first, next, then, last or in the end helps to put the events in order.


Remember, this is only a suggested activity and I am sure you will have your own excellent ideas for activities to do.


Kind regards,


Mr Leese

I hope you enjoyed the story video above.  I know you have seen this video before, but for the work today it is important to know the story really well.  Try to print the above file which is a story map of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  Can you work with an adult to put the pictures in the correct order.  You will have to talk a lot about the story to do this. 

Geraldine the Giraffe learns the /sh/ sound

The next sound in the RWI scheme that we use at school is 'sh'.  This is a single sound that is made using two letters for example in the word fish which is made up of the sounds f   i    sh.    It is one of the more tricky sounds at this stage because it is the first sound that the children have come across that is made of two letters.
