English

Welcome to your English lessons!

 

Through this week, we are going to jump straight into our new topic: World War II and our focus this week is the out break of WWII!

 

On day 1, listen to Chapter 1, 2 or 3 of Carrie's War and complete the tasks. 

On day 2, you will be focusing on grammar! This week it is determiners - go through the slides and complete the tasks!

On days 3-5, you will be focusing on different writing tasks. We are going to be focusing on World War II so all the activities will be based around the Out Break of the War learning!

Don't forget, you need to read all the information on the out break of the war to be able to complete your writing activities! 

Enjoy :) 

MONDAY'S READING TASK!

 

Today, we are going to focus on summarising and inferring! Watch me (Miss Pick) read Chapter 1, 2 or 3 of Carrie's War and whilst you are listening, I would like you to use your inference skills to think about how the characters' feeling are impacting on their actions. At the end of the chapter, I would like you to summarise what happened in chapter.

TUESDAY - GRAMMAR DAY

 

For this weeks grammar task, you need to read through the pictures and join in with some of the practices, identifying the different types of determiners. At the end, we will need to create a revision poster/map/flash cards to help you to learn the different types of determiners and their purposes.
