This week we are looking at the story 'How many legs?', written by Kes Gray and Jim Field.

Click on the link below to hear Claire reading the story.

What letter sounds are these? Can you say the sounds? If you blend them together what word do you read?

 

Words beginning with the same sound.

There are so many legs in the story! The sound we are thinking about is ‘l’ for leg. Can we think of lots of words starting with ‘l’. Can we make a list? Oh, ‘list’ there is a word beginning with ‘l’ already: list, leg, lemon, lion …..

Alliteration is when words start with the same sound. For example: curly Colin caterpillar or Peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.

Can we make an alliteration with ‘l’?

The long, lanky legs leapt towards the lovely lemonade. You could use the words in your ‘l’ list.        

Letter formation in gloop

 

You will need cornflour, water, a tray or plate. Just add a little water at a time you don’t want it too runny.

 

 

             

 

 

Start with ‘l’ for leg. Now have a go at writing the letters in your name.

If you haven’t got any cornflour you could do your letter formation in salt, flour, sand or just with a pencil and paper.

    

 

 

In the story ‘How many legs?’ all of the animals go to a tea party. Let’s write an invitation to a tea party! You could include things like who the invitation is for, where and when, what they need to wear ( the animals in the story all come wearing funny hats or costumes. Finally, what they might need to bring with them. Remember duck brings a lemon cake.
