Literacy Lesson 1

Watch the video clip below "Caterpillar Shoes". Choose which one of the main characters you would like to describe, you can choose between the woodlouse, spider, grasshopper, beetle or the snail. Each page attached below has the character on one of the hexagons and a number of hexagons around it. Try your best to create a word chain on the hexagons. Write one adjective per hexagon to describe the character. Try to complete this for one character and you may want to try another as well.

Literacy Lesson 3 and 4

Class novel

As P3 know, reading a story at the end of each day is one of my favourite parts of teaching, the magic that can be created is something very special. Usually at this time of the year we would be reading "James and the Giant Peach" together.

If you have a copy of the book at home that is fantastic, if not, the video below reads through the book. You could listen to 15 minutes a day or choose to listen to a chapter at a time.

 

While you are reading the book, please discuss different aspects of the story. I have attached some choice board pages, these include a range of different questions that could be talked through together. Enjoy some story time smiley
