Can you find your favourite book? You may have it have home or with a grown up. You may be able to find it online. Can you retell the story to a grown up or to your toys ? Can you read any of the words? See if you can find the words from your ‘word books’ in the text. Maybe you can draw or write about your story and we can try and guess what book it is?

Spring has arrived and we have been lucky to have had some sunshine as well. Can you notice any changes? What looks different? From your windows or gardens what can you see? Can you draw or write about the changes you have spotted?
Maybe we can all draw a picture of what we can see from our window and we can share these when we return to class.

Who’s the Teacher ?
We are really missing teaching you Read Write Inc... so your challenge is to teach your grown ups or your toys the sounds you know. Can you try and do this like your teacher does. What do they say, write, or make you do? If you want to be super smart you could learn a new sound. Watch ‘Mr Thorne’ or ‘Ruth Miskin’ on ‘YouTube’ with a grown up and that will help you.
