Can you write a given word outside? You can use chalk, leaves, grass, sticks or anything you can find. I’m excited to see what you come up with.
Note for adults: Start with a simple three letter word and build up from there. If your little one is not very engaged or a little reluctant, put on a timer and give them a goal, like completing it in under a minute or racing someone else.

SECRET MISSION

I’ve had to record again and significantly shorten the video.in the hope that it uploads.

So the important details: I need the portraits done by 24th of June. If you cant get them to the mercat by then I can see if stacey is free to collect from anyone is struggling to get it there.

If you would like to take part I’ll send you the name and the photo of the primary 7 I would like you to draw.

Depending on opt in I may ask if people would be interested in doing more than one portrait. We want to make sure all the p7s are represented so they have a good send off.

Prefixes go at the start of words to change the meaning of them. For example, putting un before happy changes it to unhappy.

Literacy fun- Common words
Play: https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/dinosaurEggsHF/index.html Note for adults: If you know your child is confident in the first 100, move on to the next set.
If you are unsure, start on the first 100, if they sail through it you can increase the challenge. Common words are a really tricky part of reading because they can’t sound them out so going over them is really helpful.
Literacy- Writing
We are almost at the end of Kid Normal and the authors left us on a real cliff hanger at the end of chapter 24.
I want you to write your own ending to the story.
Think about what will happen to Murph, the other characters and how will the story come to an end.
Try and challenge yourself to use lots of exciting vocabulary.
Art and design- artists hour
Today, you become an artist.
I want you to draw a portrait.
This can be of someone in your house (if they are willing to sit and model for you) or you can do it from a picture of someone you know or maybe even a celebrity. I want youto carefully consider the details you can see in their face.
