Writing

Our focus on writing this week is ‘Stargazer’.

We would like you to focus on the sick sentences but it would be great if you could have a go at all the challenges. 

Reading

This week we would like you to focus on onomatopoeia as a feature of poetry.

This link contains a helpful video and some activities to apply your knowledge.    

As a challenge, can you think of your own examples? 

You could have a go at writing your own poem using these examples.   

Have a listen to David Williams read an extract from his book and answer the questions on how to find information in a text.

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar

This week, we are looking at how to use apostrophes in contractions.  The following BBC Bitesize page explains what possessive apostrophes are and gives you an opportunity to practise your understanding.

Make sure you try the quiz at the end. 

The sheets below will help you practise using apostrophes for contraction and revise using apostrophes for possession that you learned last week.

In addition to this, we would also like you to continue practising your handwriting skills with your spellings this week, using more adverbs using the suffix –ly 

Have some fun with a word search and use the Look, Say, Cover & Write and don’t forget to use scribble spellings to help you learn your spellings.
