Hello again Beech class!

I hope you are all well! It was nice to speak to your Mums and Dads yesterday to see how you all are. It was also nice to say hi to some of you! Parents please do email if you have any questions or queries about anything! Everyone is doing so well with the home learning it seems! I am so proud of you and please keep it up!



Recap the characters in the story. Watch it again if you need reminding who is in the story. Here are a few pictures of some of the characters to help.

Get your child to choose their favourite character in the story and ask them to write a sentence. e.g.

I like … because … (they can use this as a sentence starter if they like).

Maybe they could describe their favourite character too in a few sentences to extend their sentences.


Once the children have written their sentences they can draw a picture of their favourite character.


Use your phonics.
