Spelling –

Can you include these words in sentences? Practise writing them in your best handwriting.

English – We are beginning to look at warning stories.

What warning stories do you already know? What do you think would be included in a warning story?

The story line hinges around the main character being warned not to go somewhere or do something and disobeying what they are told. This leads to a disaster, rescue and in the end a lesson is learned.

Can you retell the story of Little Red Riding Hood?

Settings are important in warning stories. Have a look at this clip: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpccwmn/articles/z8mqsrd
