WB 8th June

This week we will be listening to the story My Granny is a Pirate by Val McDermid and Arthur Robins and writing all about the Granny in the story. We will also be making pirate accessories and pirate puppets as part of our new topic about Pirates and the Seaside.

We are continuing with our daily handwriting and this week the letters we are practising are m, a, s, d and t. The practice sheets for these can be found at the bottom of this page:
