Miss Battams and Miss Duncan.
Here is the next part of our story for you to read. We would like you to read this part of the text and we would like you add in the words that you think could be missing so that the text makes sense.
Alice missing words Click on this link to access the larger text. You can print it out from here if you wish or you can write a list of the missing words in order.
Our story this week was set in a fantasy land. We would like you to create a story plan for your own story set in a fantasy world. You can use my example and the template below to help you plan the parts of your story. Remember, when we plan our writing we do not need to write in lots of details, tell the story or write in long sentences. this plan is just notes about the key points and key words or ideas we could include when we do the proper written piece.
story plan this is a link to a blank template you can print or use to create your plan. This can be printed from here if you wish. You can use my example in the bottom photograph below to help you complete yours.
This week we are continuing with a recap of addition looking at some of the different strategies we have used in class to teach this operation. You should solve the calculations by recording your working out. Remember, some questions you get extra points for showing how you solved the problem so this is a skill we should practice even if we already know the answer.
For these questions you need to draw the resources you need. Use the photographs below to see how you should record your working out today. You can use any of the methods below to solve the calculations, but you should be able to show us how you have worked it out and not just write down the answer to the question.
35 +7 =
43 + 25 =
10 + 56 =
49 + 11 =
28 + 28 =
Whe you’ve done the questions above, have a go at these. You might need to re-write the order of the sum to help you before you try to solve it.
? = 26 +15
? = 39 + 27
54 + ? = 66
37 + ? = 47
? + 72 = 91
It is important that we practice spelling phonetic sounds in all of the different ways they can be written. It helps us to read and write words that they are in several times so you should follow all the steps to help you practice.
We are going to focus on the sound ‘l’ pronounced ‘l’ as in lip.
There are 6 different spellings of this sound. These have all been taught to your child in school already. This sound can be spelt as:
l as in lip
ll as in fill
le as in apple
el as in camel
al as in metal
il as in pencil
Can you read these words with the sound ‘l?
lean, pulling, topple, petal, cancel, medal
Can you write the words below thinking about which spelling of the sound they have? Ask an adult to read the word for you to so you can try to spell it. Remember there is one word for each spelling of the sound so you can’t use the same spelling more than once.
lastly, telling, ripple, pixel, pedal, pupil
Can you sort these words into the correct boxes? Look carefully at the spellings of the sound in each word. You might want to draw the table to help you.
Common Exception Word Spellings.
This week we will be taking another focussed look at these spellings as it is very important we can all read and spell these. Today the words have been spelt incorrectly. These are sometimes how we see them spelt in your books! Can you correct the spellings. You have the list of works in the front of your reading record book that you can use to help you.
We would like you to have a think about how computers are used around the world. If you can, watch this short video to get some ideas of how people find computers useful when doing their jobs.
Can you think about where people might use computers, and create a list showing the jobs and how the computers help people to do their work?
Something different for a story today! It’s another story telling task where you get to tell the story. But this time you have to roll a dice. Whatever number your dice lands on you have to include that object in your story. Maybe you could take it in turns with somebody to roll the dice and add the next part of the story! You can choose any of the objects or words from that number to add so you can use the same number more than once. See how far you can get creating a funny story!
