Guided Reading

We are now going to look at the ending of the story. Let’s see if your predictions were correct. We hope you have enjoyed reading this story. It might be nice to listen to the whole story from the beginning.  

Stick Man (by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler)

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

Remember, you can pause the story at any time to answer the questions. There is a Spot The Difference activity to complete at the end! Here are your tasks:




Learning for Life


 Today we are going to understand the natural process of growing from young to old and understand that this is not something that we can control.

You will be identifying people who are older than you and thinking about how you give them respect.




Use the PowerPoint pictures of a baby, toddler, teenager, adult and elderly person. Describe two changes you can visibly see that happen to an elderly person.

Think about how our bodies have already changed and what other changes might happen, e.g. bodies become slower, old people run less but might get wiser and kinder. Remember that change is a natural process as we get older and we have no control over it. We will all become old and all grow from a baby, to a toddler, to a child, to a teenager, to an adult and to an old person.

How do our faces/bodies change as we become older?


We are going to listen to the story 'My Grandpa is Amazing' by Nick Butterworth. This fits in beautifully with our work today.

My Grandpa is Amazing

By Sophie

How special is this grandpa is to his grandchildren? 

Can you think about someone in your family or community who is old? This could be a grandparent or a family friend or a neighbour.


Independent Activity:

To make a leaf mobile: Draw a picture of an older person who is special to you. On the back of the leaf template, write about the things that they respect, like or love about this person.



We hope you have had a fab day.

Take care and enjoy the weekend and we'll see you all next week.

Remember to be good for your parents. You are all so amazing and we are all so proud of you!


Bye for now 

Love from

Miss Sykes and Mrs Ahmad laugh
