Week 8 (01.06.20 - 05.06.20)

English

This week our focus writing genre is Setting Descriptions. (We wrote some setting descriptions together when we were learning about Billy and The Minpins and we were describing The Forest of Sin.) 

 

By the end of this week, you will have completed your writing mission: to write a setting description to describe a character of your choice walking across an empty beach. 

 

On Monday, you are going to read a short story called Son of the Sea and answer some questions about it. Remember to use the text and what you have read to help you - you don't need to remember all of the answers, just find them in the text!

 

On Tuesday, you are going to learn about pronouns and how to use them  in your writing. There are some interactive activities and information for you to use and look at on BBC Bitesize that will help you with your learning and then some activities for you to complete. 

 

On Wednesday, you are going to plan your setting description by coming up with descriptive words and phrases that will help you when you start to write. 

 

On Thursday, you will improving sentences that I have written by adding pronouns and descriptive words and phrases. 

 

On Friday, you will be writing your setting description.

I can't wait to see your finished short story on your portfolio on Dojo! 

Spellings

This week, your spellings are homophones that include the long 'o' vowel sound. 

Please see below for a guide on what you need to do for your spelling home learning. 

(This week is Week 2)

 

Week 1
• Monday – Thursday: In Week 1 your spelling work consists of you practising these words (using a writing pencil), using the look cover write check method. You can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if you would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on 10 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: In Week 2 your spelling work consists of you including each word in a sentence then writing the sentences in your spelling book. You can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if you would like to.
