TUESDAY 5TH JANUARY 2021
Good morning. I am so sorry that the year has had to start in this way. Please find below a few ideas for today. I hope to give you more information later today as school comes together to plan for the coming weeks together. As the week goes on, I will be switching to more formal online learning. We all just need a little more time to figure out how this can be done!
 
GRAMMAR:
To use apostrophes (in this case for contraction)
All our Grammar work this week will focus upon using apostrophes correctly, particularly apostrophes for possession. Please watch the following video and do all of the activities suggested. Today, the video concentrates on using apostrophes for contraction.

COMPREHENSION:
To answer comprehension questions
Triangles for Guided Reading: Read the text and complete the questions with 1 star
Squares and Rectangles for Guided Reading: Read the text and complete the questions with 2 stars
Pentagons and Hexagons for Guided Reading: Read the text and complete the questions with 3 stars

HANDWRITING:
To practise joining the prefixes 'un' and 'de'
Please print and copy the following handwriting joins. If you do not have a printer, ask an adult to copy the letters correctly onto lined paper. You can then continue with this activity.
If you have been asked in school NOT to join letters, please complete the second sheet.

SPELLING:
To spell words with the 'zh' sound spelt 'ch' (mostly french in origin) as well as 's', 'ss (ion / ure)
Read the words on the sheet below. 
/images/spelling words 5.1.21.docx
Then spend some time learning to spell these words. You might want to use one of the following strategies:
- pyramid words
- rainbow writing
- quickwrite (how many times can you write these in 1 minute?)
- look, say, cover, write
