Watch and enjoy the film Caterpillar Shoes together:

Watch the film again and write down the types of shoes the caterpillar wears and who he gives them to. Pause the film when needed so you can write them down.

Then write sentences, e.g. The caterpillar gave his … to the … so …

Check all sentences for spelling and punctuation together.


Now hunt for all the shoes in your house and make a list, e.g.
- school shoes
- trainers
- flip flops
- slippers

- walking boots
Write a sentence about each type of shoe in your house, who wears them and for what, e.g. My Dad wears walking boots when he goes out hiking.
I wear flip flops when I go on holiday.
My sister wears trainers when she goes running.

 

Include the conjunction ‘when’ in each sentence to join the ideas together. You could switch each sentence around so that the sentence begins with ‘when’, e.g. When my sister goes running, she wears trainers.


Challenge!
How many sentences can you write about shoes in your house?  Aim for five, but can you beat that?

Send Mrs Smallshaw your sentences about shoes.
