Church of England Primary School

Small school, big hearts. Wise, Responsible and Kind like the Good Samaritan.

Thursday is usually when we do our Big Read in Acorns and enjoy different book related activities. 


Little Acorns- Please choose 1 of the activities listed below: 


  • Once Upon A Picture-  With the help of your parents or older siblings, talk about the picture 'Goodnight Story' below and discuss.

  • Play 'Guess the story'- Ask your adult or older sibling to read a clue from one of the pictures below. Guess the story and then think of your own clue about a favourite story. You could then read the story if you have the book at home. 


If you would like to email me your own 'Guess the Story' clue then I will share with the rest of the class.

How does the smaller turtle feel about the story? How do you know?

Please read an Oxford Owl story online (It is free to use but your adult will need to sign up). I would recommend reading the Read Write Inc scheme books below, which focus on specific sounds that we have been learning.
