(Approx. 30 mins – 12 min teaching video, 20 mins activity)

  • Watch Miss Sutton’s video.
  • Today, we are going to add speech bubbles to the characters. What do you think that they are thinking and saying? Have a chat.
  • Reception – Try writing one or two words if a sentence is a bit tricky. Really focus on the sound that you can hear at the beginning of the word. Then, try breaking it up using parrot arms, to segment each of the sounds in the word.
  • Talk about what the different characters might be saying – say your sentence, then write it.
  • Don’t forget: full sentences, focus on finger spaces and punctuation.
  • See if you can complete Miss Sutton’s challenge to use a question mark and the word ‘and’.


  • Fill in the speech bubbles linked to the characters in the story.
  • Create your own speech bubbles for characters in different stories, or for your teddies.
