The activities for this week will be based around the story 'Superworm' by Julia Donaldson.

For Monday's activity of making a flap book you will need to have prepared a small paper booklet with a flap attached to each page.
For the magic potion on Tuesday you will need a plastic bottle with a lid.
On Thursday you will need the materials to make a Superworm toy. This can be made quite simply from an old sock, pair of tights, cardboard tube or similar.
If you wish to hold a little 'Welcome Home' party for Superworm on Friday, you might need a few small treats and possibly a 'Pass the Parcel' or provision for other party games!

We hope that you enjoy your week,
Mrs Finch, Mrs Sandry and Mrs Egleton.
