Literacy Live TEAMS session at 10.30am (complete this activity after):
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.

Next watch the videos and join in with the activities (on Tapestry).
