The link below is a unit of English work for the next fortnight. This includes both reading and writing activities.

The following is a suggested timetable for completing the English unit over the two week period.

Day 2: Continue reading the story on page 6. Draw the evil that came out of the box. Be creative! 
Day 3: Activity on page 7: share the story with someone at home. Talk then write: Did you like this story? Why? You could even act it out for them.
