Home Learning for 22nd - 26th February

Please see below for a daily timetable supporting you and your child to continue to access the curriculum at home. Please refer to the blended learning homepage for the principles and advice guiding our home learning offer. We endeavour to provide links that are accessible via  a mobile phone and the learning can then be recorded on paper if appropriate. This can be shared via Class Dojo to enable your child's class teacher to provide feedback and guide you and your child on the next steps in their learning. 

 

There will be supplementary videos posted by class teachers on Class Dojo and remember to tune in for your stories. :)

Word of the day 

 

 Sick sentence:

 

 

 

Here is yesterday’s sick sentence written correctly:

 

Some people believe dragons are mythical creatures; other people believe they exist.

 

Correct the following sentence.

 

whiyl asteroids crashed down to pandora the Navi carried sheilds through the feilds

 

Spellings

Here are the new spellings for next week: 

 

  climb         numb        knee

knock        descend      Wednesday   

column     wretched     February

 

existence       explanation      familiar

 

Investigate the new spelling pattern.  Can you find any other words that would fit? Look in your reading book to see if you can find any of your spellings.  

 

Write your spelling words on someone’s back. Can they guess the word? Ask them to repeat on your back. If you don’t have anyone at home to do this with, you can practise some air writing with your spelling words.

 

Look out for a video on Monday with Mrs White explaining the spelling rule further.  

See the English resources for the new Say Look Cover Write Check sheets.
