Talk for Writing

We are currently learning the story "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" by Michael Rosen.  We have adapted it slightly to make it a bit shorter and easier to retell.  Below, you can find a story map and the text for our shortened version.  

You could:

* practise retelling the story.

* draw your own story map.

* draw, paint, collage or make a model of the settings or characters.

* think about how you could make changes to the story.

In school, we are currently focusing on retelling and then innovating nursery rhymes.  At home, it would be helpful to sing Nursery Rhymes with your child.  The document below allows you to quickly and easily access YouTube videos for a selection of songs and rhymes.

Phonics

This term we are focusing on listening skills, including developing awareness of rhyme and listening for the sounds in words.  At home, you could encourage your child to listen for rhyme in stories and nursery rhymes.  You could also play I Spy, but use the sounds rather than the letter names.  The link below takes you to a video showing the correct pronunciation of sounds.
