What to do:
Attempt to write a sentence
Fill in the first week of the sunflower diary.
How to do it:
Use the sunflower diary in your home learning pack. Fill in the first week. What has happened to the sunflower seed? Look at the sunflowers. An example of a sentence is: The sunflower is starting to shoot.
If your child finds that tricky:
Draw a picture of the sunflower at the moment. Then label the different parts e.g small stem, seed. Focus on the initial sounds and move onto writing all the sounds in a word.
Use the language of retelling e.g first, next, then. First it shoot out of the soil. Next the seeds dropped off. Then it grew leaves.
