WAIL To answer questions about a text based on what has been read to me

          To ask questions about a text

          To predict what might happen in a text I have had read to me


Success criteria: I can say what a character might be feeling using what I have

                             heard or pictures I have looked at

                             I can ask questions about a text and words I don't understand

                             I can draw a picture to show what I think might happen


Learning Journey

We will be referring back to our text 'The Adventures of Egg Box Dragon'. The children will have an opportunity to talk about how the characters are feeling based on what has been read so far, and ask any questions about events, phrases (admired him enormously) and unusual vocabulary used, e.g. critters. They will share their ideas about what they think might happen in the moonlight, and then, while listening to some 'magical' music, try to visualise this, making and colouring a drawing to show this.

WAIL To recognise the features of a weather diary

          To keep a weather diary


Success criteria: I can say what the features of a weather diary are

                            I can write a diary entry about the weather

Learning Journey

The children will be looking at reasons about why we collect information about the weather and how we collect it, revisiting some previous learning. They will then decide a format for their weather diary, and consider what information would be useful. Using a mix of data they have collected themselves (using the rain gauge they have made) or published data, the children will keep their own weather diary for a week.

There are several activities which help stretch and relax fingers to promote fine motor dexterity. Try this simple, one minute, hand, and finger warm-up exer...

Watch the Skywriter link to show letter formation for all four letters.
Watch the 4 letter formation videos, one at a time, giving the children an opportunity practise their letter formation in between by writing 5 of each letter.  Children who find handwriting tricky can practise their letter formation using one of the activities from the 'Ideas for Handwriting' sheet.

Learn to Write the Letter R | Pre-cursive Letter Formation

Write three words beginning with r, then m, then n, then h.



Use one of your words in a sentence - remember to use the letter formation we have practised.
