Please watch the film below of Miss Craig reading through the story using the story map.

Discuss the characters and objects in the story. In your green work books, draw the 'Three bears,' 'three bowls of porridge,' 'three chairs' and 'three beds.'
Use words ending in '-er' and '-est' (bigger/ biggest and smaller/ smallest) to compare the bears/ chairs/ bowls/ spoons. Encourage children to point to their drawings as they are speaking.
For example: 'Which bear is smaller than Mummy bear?' or 'Which bear is the tallest/ angriest/ saddest?'.
Encourage children to speak in full sentences e.g: Baby bear is smaller than Mummy bear.

- Find two amounts and add them together. eg. 4+2=6
- Use numbers that make a total within 10. Try not to go over 10
- repeat addition by swapping numbers over (eg 4+2=6 and 2+4=6), what do they notice?
-use words like (addition, add, plus) (altogether, total, equals)
L.O: To identify which materials are good for building a house.
Watch the video below of the story of 'The Three Little Pigs.'
Talk about what happens in the story. Who are the characters in the story? What materials were the houses made from? What happens at the beginning/ middle and end of the story?
Discuss the materials that the pigs used to build their three houses - straw, sticks and bricks.
Are they strong materials? Are they soft materials? Why?
What material is your house built from? Is it strong or soft?
Using the green work books in your learning packs, ask your child to draw three pictures of the houses. Can they label the houses with the name of the material and decide if the material is strong or soft.
