**►Reading **

Please read with your child for 20 minutes each day. This could be a story book which you read, a phonics book which they read or a mixture of the two.

Oxford Owl have a library of free books which can be read on a phone or tablet.

Follow the link below and sign up yourself. You can then access a variety of books which are age-appropriate. Start on age 3-4 (Oxford Level 1) and work your way through as your child gets more confident.

**►Topic**

Today we are continuing with our work on Handa's Surprise.

We will be thinking about how the fruits in the story feel.

Provide your child with an arrangement of fruit and cover their eyes with a blindfold. Ask them to hold each fruit in turn and tell you how it feels. Is it smooth? It is rough? Is it soft? It is bumpy? Then ask them to guess which piece of fruit they are holding.

If you do not have a variety of fruit, you could do this is a variety of household items instead.

Tomorrow, we will be fruit tasting so it would be fantastic if you could have a variety of fruit available for this.

I have attached the story again below, should you want to watch it together.
