Home Learning for 8th - 12th 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:

 

From behind the moon’s crater, an eerie, cosmic being hovered towards us.

Correct the following sentence.

 

one heart stopping morning we stept out into the unnown mysterius wurld

 

Spellings

Here are the new spellings for next week: 

 

rough        tough         enough

thought        ought          though

although    through         bought

 

especially     exaggerate     excellent

 

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.  

 

Make your spelling words out of lengths of string. Can you make one word with one piece of string? Or make each letter at a time.

 

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