Try to read a variety of books at home each day.  Aim to spend at least twenty minutes reading. This can be reading a book aloud or sharing a book with an adult. It might be a book from your bookshelf, a book from school or an online text.

• Do we know any other stories set in a house in the woods?
• What type of stories often include orphans and houses in the woods?
Watch up to just before he finds the hat.
• What words does the narrator use to describe the forest? • What sounds does he hear?
Pause the film after when the boy finds the hat.
• Who do you think this hat may have belonged to?
Pause the film after the narrator has described the creatures.
• How do you think the boy is feeling?
• What creatures can we see? • Can you describe some of the creatures?
Pause after 1 min 30 – when the boy is admiring the caged creatures.
• Why has the boy put them in the jars and cages? • What does he like about the animals?
• Do you think it is right to keep animals locked in cages?
Pause the film when only the normal birds came.
• How do you think the boy is feeling now?
• What other words do we know for sad? • What things can make us sad?
Pause the film after the boy calls out ‘Please come back to me!’
• What else could the boy say to the bird to persuade him to come back with him?
• What do you think the bird might say back if it could talk?
• What do you think the boy is going to do?.
• Is there a lesson to this story? A moral? • How should we treat wild creatures?

Writing: Grammar and Poetry Writing:
Verbs and adverbs.  
Do you remember that verbs are action words,adverbs describe how the actions are happening?

Can you think of some more ‘dancing’ verbs ?  You might need to watch 'The Black Hat' video clip again.
           flying swooping twirling plunging

Adverbs describe how the actions are being performed.  
Adverbs often end in 'ly' 
Can you find some more dancing adverbs?
       gently   swiftly          easily
Here is the beginning of an adverb and verb poem.  The adverbs and verbs are paired together to create each line:
The Birds
Gently flying,
Delicately turning,
Easily twirling,
Expertly plunging...

This poem is beginning very gently but perhaps the bird could build up some speed in the poem.
Can you write some more lines to add to this poem, using the verbs and adverbs that you collected?
Then, write the poem in your best handwriting.  You could add a picture to show what is happening in the poem.

Phonics and Spelling:
Please write the spellings for this week into your spelling log. 

Can you complete the butterflies so that they are exactly the same at both sides? 
Choose which one you would like to do, or do both!

Phonics and Spelling:

Be kind and help others
Don’t forget to try to do something to help someone else each day. There are lots of things that you could do to be helpful.  Have a think about what you could do to help someone.  Maybe, you could send a message to someone far away, to let them know that you are thinking about them?
The Project for this week is called ‘All Around the World’
