Children's Story: This is the bear and the picnic lunch


* Make a list of things you would bring on a picnic.  You could draw pictures or have a go at sounding out some words yourself eg rug, sweets, crisps, ham, apple, drink etc.

* Draw an outfit for a teddy to wear to the picnic and write a sentence below eg 'I am going on a picnic'.

* Make invitations to your Teddy Bears Picnic for your family.


You can use this Teddy Bear page for your writing and drawing.

Our new sound for this week is

Word Revision

Check the words your child needs to practise by showing them all the word cards they have learnt in P1.  Set aside any they are unsure of and practise these words using the games from previous weeks. 


Sentence Building

Use the word cards 

mum  dad  Kipper  Floppy  Biff  Chip  I  am


*Make a sentence eg I am Kipper and encourage your child to read it to you pointing to each word as they say it.

* Say a sentence eg I am Biff and encourage your child to make it.  Get them to read it back to check if they are right.

* If you need to make this activity harder, ask your child to make a sentence from these words.  Get them to read it back to check it makes sense.
