Week 1 23.03 - 27.03

English

This week Team we are starting a new genre type - RECOUNTS. By the end of the week you will write an EPIC recount about our trip to Forest School.

On Monday you are going to read someone elses recount and answer questions.

On Tuesday, you are going to focus on time connectives and why they help our writing flow.

On Wednesday you will plan your recount before writing them on Thursday and Friday.

 

Go into each folder below to find out more about your daily learning!

 

Spelling

For the next two weeks we are working on 'eye' sound. 'y' is by far the most common way of making the 'eye' sound at the end of word. We will also look at the  ‘y’ changing to ‘i’ before adding ‘es’.

 

This weeks spellings are inside your spelling book. Just as normal practise spelling the words each day. 

 

Week 1
• Monday – Thursday: Week 1 spelling work consists of children practising these words (using a writing pencil), using the look cover write check method. They can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if they would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on all of the spelling words you have been practising. Reflect on any words you found tricky – make these words/rules your focus for next week.


Week 2
• Monday – Thursday: Week 2 spelling work consists of children including each word in a sentence then writing the sentences in their spelling book. They can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if they would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on all of the spelling words you have been practising.

Fun ways to practise spellings!
