Week beginning: 12/11/18

This week we shall be focusing on

Pirates Love Underpants

Here are some areas we shall be looking at in class this week that you could try at home...


We will be reading the story of ‘Pirates Love Underpants’ throughout the week. The children will be looking at rhyme and creating rhyming pairs and a simple rhyming sentence. At home you could support rhyming by reading books that rhyme and asking your child to spot the rhyming words or by playing odd one out give your child 3 or 4 words and ask them to spot the one that doesn’t rhyme.


We will be looking at positional language. At home you could get your child to follow some simple directional instructions (put the teddy under the table, put the car on top of the garage etc.) if you complete any activities at home please take photos and send them in to… and mark with your child’s class RVC or RJS
