Week 9 08.06 - 12.06

English

This week Team, we are going to look at writing a non-chronological report. Last time we used this genre we wrote a report about the world. This time we are going to use our learning from last week about habitats to write about the plants and animals you found in your gardens. Our focus this week will be all about glossaries. Our audience will be 'BBC Springwatch' and we will send our reports to the program!

 

On Monday you are going to read a story with a report about pond habitats.

On Tuesday, you are going to focus on writing glossaries.

On Wednesday, I want you to plan your report. Remember this just has to be notes.

On Thursday, I want you to write the first part of your report. 

On Friday, I want you to complete your report and include a glossary.

 

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

Spelling

We are on WEEK 1 of our work. Your child is learning how letters can make different sounds.  These words have the letter ‘o’ which makes a sound like a short ‘u’ (as in ‘mud’).   

 

This week's words have the letter ‘o’ which can make the short ‘u’ sound.  Often before a ‘v’, ‘n’ or ‘th’.

 

You can find this weeks spelling sheet as an image below, but also as a word document you can download and print out. If you can't print, just write the words out in your spelling books. 

 

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.
