The Three Little Pigs by Roald Dahl
 
We had a lot of fun learning and performing the poem, with Mr Clarke's amazing help. Here are some post-production shots.
Helping your child at home:
 
As we only have your child for less than 7 hours a day, we would encourage parents to help with key skills such as times tables facts up to 12 x 12, writing opportunities with purpose eg. shopping list, birthday cards, letters, as well as hearing your child read aloud regularly. We know that as children get older they like to read to themselves, but it really benefits their expressive voice for characters, it helps them practice how to use punctuation and it gives the parents a focal point to discuss the books that children are reading. Comprehension, inference, deduction and prediction are always skills that we will be talking about at school in reading sessions, so more practice at home would greatly be appreciated.
