Can you help organise a picnic/lunch in your garden/ house for your family. What do you need for your picnic?


Please can you write an invitation to your family to come to your picnic. How many invitations do you need? Can you try and independently write ‘To’ thinking about our tricky words?


Can you write a menu for your picnic? What food will you be serving?


Don’t worry if it is not the correct spelling, you can then model this after they have had a go. It is important for the children to have a go first and practise their phonic skills.
