For your handwriting today, I would like you to do two lines of:

Capital F, G, H

This week we are looking at The Gruffalo, which should be familiar with most of you. 

Using your pictures from yesterday, can you retell the story of The Gruffalo in as much detail as you can remember?


You can either print off the gruffalo picture or you can draw your own version – just the outline.

I would like you to label The Gruffalo with nouns – like we’ve done in class together. 


Next, I would like you to add adjectives to your nouns – try not to only use colours.  E.g. gigantic beast, soft fur, rumbling belly.


I have attached a Powerpoint about adjectives and nouns to support as needed.

To bring a bit of cheer and comfort to those in our community, today I would like you to create something that we can pass on to local supported living homes.

It is completely up to you what you would like to create.  You may choose to create a bright and colourful picture (rainbows, summery days etc); a poem; a story or something else creative.  I would like you to either scan or take a photograph and email them in by Friday so that we can pass them along.
