Today’s learning intention is to write about a character from a fairy-tale story. To be successful today you will be able to: identify a character, decide if the character is good or bad, segment the sounds to write words, and attempt to write a short sentence.

For today’s activity I would like you to draw/paint or even collage a picture of your favourite character and write their name. Perhaps then you may like to label your picture with some words (see the example).

Next I would like you to write a sentence about the character you have chosen, here are some sentence starters you may like to use:

My character is………..

My character is from the story of…………..

My character is good/bad because……..


Our focus for music this week is on high-pitched and low-pitched sounds.
