Monday – Today we are comparing the pigs and the wolf in the story of The Three Little Pigs. Can you draw the characters and write about how they are the same and how they are different. For example, what they look like, how they behave and what they do in the story.

Tuesday – your writing today is part of our RE work. Please see the RE section below.

Wednesday – In Forest School yesterday we made stars out of little sticks. You can make one too! find some short twigs and sticks and tie them together with wool to make a star. Attach a loop so that you can hang it up. Today we will be reading a story called ‘Follow the star’ all about the star which led to wise men to Bethlehem. You can find a picture of a beautiful star if your grown up at home finds one on the internet to share with you. In your book, can you describe the star you made and the stars in the sky. See how many amazing words you can come up with the describe stars.

Thursday – Which is your favourite character in the story of The Three Little Pigs? Why? can you write and tell me?

Friday – Choose some important or tricky words from the story and try to learn to spell them. For example – huff, puff, house, wolf, straw, sticks, bricks etc. You can play game to learn how to spell each word too – maybe even play ‘teachers’ with an adult at home to see if they can learn the words too!
