Good Morning Children and Your Parents 


How are you all this morning? We hope you are all keeping well. The weather is supposed to get warmer so hopefully we can enjoy the sunshine. How did you get on with your topic work yesterday? Did you enjoy the activities and which was your favourite? We hope you like reading our morning quotes. We have planned another day with lots of exciting activities including art work for this afternoon.

Lunchtime: You must all be ready for some lunch because we certainly are.


Guided Reading

How have you been doing with the 2 mark questions?

Your answers will need 2 parts to them. Here are some examples from yesterday's work:


Where does Stick Man live and who with?

Stick Man lives in the family tree with his wife (Stick Lady Love) and their three children.


How do you think Stick Man feels when the dog releases him but then the girl picks him up?

I think Stick Man felt happy and relieved when the dog released him but then he felt annoyed when the girl picked him up and was going to throw him.


At the start of the season the leaves are green and there is blossom on the branches. Which season do you think it is and why?

I think that it is spring time at the start of the story because of the green leaves and the blossom. Swans also build nests in springtime.


When you do your 2 mark questions today make sure that you answer both parts of the question.


Here is the next part of the story. Let’s see if your predictions were correct. Please click this link and stop listening at 3.01.

Stick Man (by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler)

Reading Stick Man out loud

Remember, you can pause the story at any time to answer the questions. There is a colouring sheet for you to complete at the end. There is also a cartoon strip template, for you to create your own part of the story. Here are your tasks:
