This week is all about Julia Donaldson's 'The Gruffalo'. 

You can listen to the story here.


This week's phonics sounds are ar, ur, er and or.

Have a go at the flashcards game on phonics play. Get a grown up to choose 'individual graphemes' and select all the phase 2 sounds and the phase 3 sounds up to 'oa'. These are the sounds that we have already learned so see which ones you can remember.

Today's sound is 'ar' This link will take you to today's lesson. Show your grown up how Mrs Cunliffe clicks on each of the tabs at the top to watch the video, reading, spelling and writing. You can also watch Geraldine to see if she can find anything with the oa sound in.

When you've finished your lesson you complete this sheet or practise writing ar. You might be able to write some words with ar in. 


Attached are some pictures from the Gruffalo story. Cut the pictures up and see if you can put the story in the correct order using the pictures. If you prefer, you can draw the pictures in the correct order on a piece of paper or in a book. If you like, you can write a sentence or some words about each picture, but you don't have to. Talk to a grown up about who the characters are in the story. Where is the story set? Is it at a beach, a shopping centre, a park?


Count the Gruffalo characters and foods from the story and write the correct number in the circle to match. If you need to check how to write your numbers correctly then you can use the Numeral song here.

I have added a couple of Gruffalo activities for you too. Have a great day.
