This week we are going to be innovating, ready for inventing our own stories next week. I've attached a box up for your child to complete with one of the ideas below:
 
  • A sea-serpent in the ocean

Your child needs to complete the box up using the ideas from above ready for writing during the week.

Topic
 
Last week we looked at Vincent Van Gogh's Sunflower picture and Yvonne Coomber's All is full of love. Some of you had a go at re-creating this picture using pencils. 
 
Your task this week is for everyone to re-create the All is full of love picture. First, you need to sketch the design onto a piece of paper and then use paint to add the colour. Make sure you let some of the paint dry before putting more on top as it may turn the paint brown!

Talk for Writing
 
Today we are going to start writing our innovations using your ideas from yesterday. 
 
I've uploaded a sheet which your child needs to re-write filling in the red words with their ideas. This is a good chance to practice our handwriting aswell as using our innovations to create a new story!
 
We will be working on this innovation for the rest of the week so only complete up to the first blue line.

Handwriting
 
This week our handwriting focus is the letter r. This letter should be the same size as all your other letters, there are no ascenders or descenders.
 
I've attached three posters at the start of the documents to help your adults at home make sure you are sitting correctly and holding the pencil correctly to make sure we get the best handwriting. (These will be attached for every handwriting sessions). 
 
Then you have a range of handwriting activities. There is the main activity and two extra practices if you would like more practice.
