Guided Reading. Watch and enjoy the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. You may remember reading this! The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Watch, listen and write down what the caterpillar ate. Discuss the question – Is the caterpillar eating a balanced diet? Think about what you have learned about a balanced diet on Monday.

English. Write an improved, healthier menu for the hungry caterpillar using days of the week. Remember to use a capital letter for each day of the week! Use describing words (adjectives) for the food which you choose each day, e.g.
Succulent sausages and poached eggs with tomato sauce
Grapefruit segments and a glass of ice-cold milk
Granary toast with sliced cheese and tomatoes on top
Chicken kebabs with peppers and onions. Don’t forget garlic sauce!
Remember to use capital letters for days of the week and check all spelling on your menu.

Spelling. The apostrophe for contraction. Look at the list of full words then write the contractions to go with them. Practise your spellings for this week and then ask a grown up to test you. Try to get full marks. See the PowerPoint below.

D&T. Picture Frame Project. Plan your nature picture frame. (See page 5 of the D&T booklet.) Make a list of all the things you will need to make your design. Then write the order in which you will need to do things when you make your frame.

Poetry. Practise our class poem: "Hey, Little Bug!" by Tai-Shona Britto.
