We are going to be working from workbook A, the children don't have these books at home so you will have to write the answers either on paper or print the worksheet.


We are learning to compare length and height, specifically focussing on shorter, taller, longer. It would be really useful if you could use items from around your house to teach the vocabulary - e.g. compare socks/toys/shoes etc and sort them tallest to shortest, shortest to longest.

Today we are going to be writing a diary entry as Purple Crayon, this means we will be saying 'I' throughout. She wishes she was looked after properly and is writing in her diary about why she is fed up. 

I would like you to include:

Why Purple Crayon is upset.

How she feels.

What she wishes she was used for - by an artist? by an adult?

What she colours

I am so fed up of Duncan scribbling outside the lines. He is never careful with me and it makes me upset. I wish I was used by an artist who would colour butterflies, balloons and flowers neatly......


Make sure you use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces in your writing. Please try to extend your sentences using 'and'.


I would like you to design a crayon celebrating your uniqueness - this should include everything that makes you you. 

What colour will your crayon be? You could draw everything you love on it, this could be a hobby, a person, a toy!
