Firstly, please recap with your child the sentences you planned yesterday about the life cycle of a butterfly. Remember to start the sentences with first, then, next, finally.


Today, I would like your child to write a sentence for each of the four stages of the life cycle of a butterfly. They might want to start by drawing a small picture for each sentence.


When writing sentences please remind them to 'finger tell' to count how many words they need. Also don't forget finger-spaces, full stops and capital letters. To help with spelling please encourage them to use their phonics sound mats to segment the sounds they can hear in the beginning, middle and end of each word. I have included a word mat below to help with spelling the difficult vocabulary.


For example...


First, a caterpillar pops out of the egg.

Then, the caterpillar eats lots of green leaves.

Next, it turns into a chrysalis. It looks like a pod.

Finally, a bright butterfly bursts out. It has red and yellow wings.
