I wonder where outside you will read your book?
If it is raining, find a nice, warm, cosy place indoors!
'Forest Phonics' is great fun. There are loads of other phonic games on 'ictgames.co.uk' if you don't fancy this one.
When you are describing the rain forest, remember to use all your senses. The live stream link on the Learning Projects sheet (Wednesday writing) will really help, especially for what you can hear.
The sounds of the rain forest
Some Music - hurrah!
Listen to and watch the linked video clips on the Learning Projects sheet and then think of things you can use to create those sounds (especially the animals!).
Pots, pans, rice in a container, pasta, tin foil, your own voices - what will you use?
