Week beginning Monday 18th January 2021
This week in English we will be doing some grammar work all about nouns on Monday. Then on Tuesday we will be starting our fiction focus for the week with the story Zog and the Flying Doctors by Julia Donaldson. You may have read this book before or seen it over Christmas on the TV! At the start of the week we will be using our imagination to make up a new character that could go in the story and inventing a medicine too! You'll be able to use interesting nouns and adjectives to make your writing fun to read. On Thursday we will be writing a thank you letter from one of the characters, thinking about the features of a letter. Then on Friday you will finish the story and create another new character in some descriptive writing. We hope you enjoy the story as much as us!
English Week Beginning Monday 11th January
This week we will be doing some punctuation and grammar work on Monday looking at sentences and when to use a question mark or a full stop. Then on Tuesday we will be starting our poetry focus for the week. At the start of the week we will be reading some Winter poems. We will be thinking about what the poems mean and whether they rhyme. We will also be having a go at remembering and reciting one of the poems. Towards the end of the week, we will be having a go at collecting some interesting vocabulary to help us to write our own Winter poems. Maybe during the week when you go out for your exercise, you could use your senses to think about what you can see, hear, feel etc. during this cold season. This will help with your poetry writing.
