This week we are going to concentrate on our comprehension skills. I have put 7 different UK based animal comprehensions on. You can choose to do which five you like to do - 1 a-day 
Hi all, We are using The Ickabog in school next week and i am giving you the work below so if you are not in school you can complete at home and are not missing out.

Review chapter one using the activity sheet.

Read the extract from chapter 2.

Go through the key features of a good character description (see PowerPoint). Stop at ‘Figurative Language’ slide.

Chn draw their own Ickabog on A5 paper and stick in in the centre of a page in their literacy book. Add words and phrases around their Ickabog to describe the character’s appearance- using strong adjectives, sensory description and figurative language.

Continue the PowerPoint from slide 7. Look at describing a character’s personality.

Using their ideas from the previous lesson and the checklist,write an effective character description of the Ickabog.

There is also chapter 3 to read and answer the questions

Thursday 2nd July Only the guided reading to do

Record what we know about the Dovetails and the King Fred on the board.

Recap on the features of a formal letter.

 

Write a letter to the Dovetails ordering them to move to a smaller cottage near the graveyard. This is an order so think carefully about the language you use.

Alternately, you could write a letter of complaint from Mr Dovetail to King Fred.

Work we have been doing in class

8/15/22 June Online learning

We will do something slightly different on the w/c 15 in school but learning is going to be put on now for those not returning.

 

These booklets will be available to collect from in school and be able to be done at home. The booklet includes writing, reading, spag, science and some topic inside it.

w/c 1 June 

 

This week I would like you to read the information about Roman roads and create a poster telling me why it was important to build the roads. Give me information as to why the reasons were important.

2. Label the 5 key roads the Romans built on the map provided using google maps or atlases if you have one. 9 you can either use the map that has labels or if you want a challenge use the blank map of the UK

3. Attempt to build your own miniature Roman road using materials from home. I know it says with a partner but this is what we would have done in school.

I have attached below the work I sent out for week four in the packs.

SPAG Tips

Inside the inverted commas is the spoken text.

Start with a capital letter and close with punctuation  before the inverted commas

new line new speaker

 

Noun Phrase 

This is information about a noun

adjective is the describing word  i.e number one large is describing the keys.
