Children's Menu

Explain to your child that you are going to write a menu together. Ask them to think of the different foods and drinks they could have on a menu. Explain to them that a menu is written like a list and that you can find out how much each item of food or drink costs by looking at the price. Begin by modelling how a menu is written and then encourage your child to continue writing the menu using their phonic knowledge.

Encourage your child to create a poster titled 'My Timeline' with pictures of themselves showing how they have changed as they have grown. Your child can make a collage using photographs or they can draw pictures. Ask them to use the sounds, punctuation and tricky words they know to write a label or caption underneath each of their pictures, for example 'I was a toddler.'

 

Challenge: Write about the life cycle of a human.
