In our Live session today we did a 10 minute SPAG activity.  This has been added to the beginning of today’s teaching video. If you joined the live lesson then you can skip this.


Watch the teaching video here:



Yellow – Say things that the wombat did.  This might still be in the format of – ‘The wombat ate carrots.’


Blue – Say things the wombat did, as if they are the wombat (you may wish to make the wombat mask attached may help get into character.) So this might be – ‘I ate carrots’. 


GreenWrite sentences as if they are the wombat.  This might be – ‘I ate carrots.’ Children could extend this by using their days of the week from the task earlier in the week, so ‘On Wednesday I ate carrots.’


White – Write sentences as if they are the wombat.  Building on the Green sentences and using ‘and’ to join two sentences.  This might be – ‘On Wednesday I ate carrots and I slept’

Following on from our Internet Safety activity before half term please watch episode 3 with your child at this link:

Please take the opportunity to talk about whether children have had similar experiences and what they might do if something like this happened to them.  The Jessie & Friends messages always reinforce that if children are ever worried or unsure about anything they see online they should talk to a trusted adult.
