    I predict that the storey is little red ridding hood. The wolf is dressed like a grandma and the girl is wering a red hood. I think that the wolf is going to eat little red ridding hood.

    Elliot completed the maths. He needed a little bit of support with quarter past and quarter to but was able to tell the time independently for o’clock and half past.

    “I predict the wolf is going to eat her. A hunter finds the wolf and cuts the wolf open to eat it and see’s there’s a child and granny in there.”

    I predict it was Little Red Riding Hood. From the picture, the little girl is wearing a red cape, the big bad wolf,


    Once upon a time in the big enchanted forest, there was a lady who’s name is Mary Poppins. She lived in a big house which was built on cliff. Children often wonder into the forest and would eventually make there way to the house, and where all children would be amazed when they see the house. The lady who would come out to great the children would always do magical things. Mary poppins introduced herself to the children and the children would ask her lots of questions. She would tell them lots of magical stories and give them sweets.

    Sounds – Write Phonics

    Endless, Spotless, Speechless, Useless.


    40/2, as the other 3 are times tables.

    1) 3 o’clock.
    2) Half past four.
    3) Quarter past 2.
    4) half past 10.
    5) 7 o’clock.
    6) quarter to 7.
    7) half past 1.
    8) quarter to 10.
    9) half past 3.
