Hello and welcome to another week of home learning. This will be the last week as we speed towards the end of the summer term. 



 The Smartest Giant in Town by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.


George the giant wished he wasn’t the scruffiest giant in town. So, one day, when he sees a new shop selling giant sized clothes, he decides it’s time for a new look. With smart trousers. A smart shirt, stripy tie and shiny shoes, George is a new giant. But, on his way home, he meets various animals who desperately need his help . . . And his clothes!

Some questions to consider after listening to the story:


1.     Why do you think George wanted some new clothes?

2.    Which animal did George give his tie to? What did the animal use it for?

3.    Why did the animals give George a crown and a card? How did this make              George feel?

4.    How do George’s feelings change throughout the story?

The Smartest Giant in Town


What Speed Sounds do we need to write the names of these new items of clothing for George the giant. Do any of them start with the same sound?




   —irt   —elt

    —ie            ___ocks                  —oes             



















Can you find any other items in your house that start with these letter sounds?

Make a list. I wonder how long you can make your list?




A very special thank you letter.



The animals are so grateful for the help that the giant gave to them. They decide to thank him with a lovely letter and a gift of a gold paper crown.

You have people in your life that help you every day. Write them a letter to say thank you. It will make them feel very special.





Thank you for…





You are very kind!
