Today we will be writing the opening of our own version of Little Red Riding Hood.

Use lots of adjectives to describe your character. Describe your setting (where they are at) and ‘think, say, write, check’ each sentence and check your punctuation. Extend your sentences with ‘because' or 'so' if you can. We are only writing box 1 today. (Introducing the character, describing the setting  and saying who they are visiting.) Stop when you have done that.

Think about how to find fractions of a shape links to our division work from last week.

  3. How do you feel when you are preparing for special times?
  4. What sort of preparations do members of the family make for Christmas?
