Listen or read along with ‘Oh No, George!’.


Today, try to make some predictions. Before you begin the story, what do you think this story will be about? What do you think the character, George is like? What made you think that? Do you know any dogs? What are they like? Have you read any other stories about dogs? As you read the story, stop and discuss what you think George will do next.

Things to remember to be a good writer:

  • Think about your letter formation (use letter families poster)
  • Are there any phase 3 digraphs/digraphs you can use in the words? (You could use your phase 3 sound mat)
  • Any longer words, remember to chop them up into parts to make it easier to sound out for writing
  • Finger spaces needed between each word
  • Remember to use capital letters for names e.g. Hansel
  • Try your best to use your sounds rather than copy words. E.g. Thay sor a sweet hut.


*For more challenge, you could try using some time words at the start of your sentences to order the events of the story e.g. Then, Next, After that.*
