Swift Class w/c 27th April

Hello Everyone!

Every Monday I will set your phonics, English and maths work for the week. I have broken it down into what to do each day to make it more manageable. All the resources you need will be at the bottom of this webapge. Don’t forget to look at the ‘family challenge’ activities on the website as well. The maths and English activities are the most important things for you to complete, but you may enjoy one (or more) of the family challenges.

I hope you are safe and well
From Miss Harvey 😊

English

All of the resources and explanation documents are in the English folder at the bottom of the webpage. Each day’s activity is labelled.

Monday

We are going to look at nouns and adjectives today in English using the Paper Bag Princess story. Don’t forget to use your phonic knowledge to help with your spelling. There is a sound mat in the folder to help you.

Writing task: Character profile

Can I write 4 sentences describing the character?

Capital letter, finger spaces and full stops.

Can I write a descriptive paragraph using a range of exciting adjectives to describe looks and personality?

Can I write a detailed descriptive paragraph using commas to list adjectives within a sentence?

E.g. Miss Harvey is tall, bossy teacher who sometimes sings too much.

Tuesday

Something new today – Adverbs! We know lots about nouns and adjectives, but we haven’t looked at adverbs before. Adverbs describe verbs (how, when, where). We are going to learn about adverbs with our Paper Bag Princess story.

Can I write simple sentences independently using the word bank to choose words?

Capital letter, finger spaces and full stops.

Can I write a descriptive paragraph using the word bank? See if you can lengthen your sentences using conjunctions – linking words.

Can I retell the story or create my own version of the story using the word bank to include interesting vocabulary?

Wednesday

This week’s spellings link back to last week suffix -ness. But this time we have a new rule to learn.

If a root word ends in a consonant + y, we swap the y for an I before adding the suffix -ness

happy happi + ness happiness

Spelling list: happy, happiness, jolly, jolliness, silly, silliness, bossy, bossiness, shy, shyness, dry, dryness

Write each of your spellings into a sentence in your workbook then play some of the spelling games/activities. They are in the English folder.

Weird Word Warning

Shy and dry do not follow this rule. Keep the y and add -ness

Thursday

We are going to look at monster poems today! If you are unable to print off the poems then for the highlighting activity talk to you grown up about what punctuation and capital letters you can see.

Writing task: Describe your monster include two exclamation marks and two capitalised words.

Adult support reading the poem. Write 4 sentences independently describing you monster.

Write a descriptive paragraph about your monster. Look back at you Paper Bag princess writing, how could you improve your work this time?

Use words that have suffixes in your description writing, spelling them correctly (e.g. –ment,-ness,-ful,-less,-ly)

Friday

We are going to look at monster poems again today and compare two monster poems looking at their poetic features. Don’t worry it is all explained. If you can’t print the poetry comparison chart then do this verbally going through each criteria on the screen.

Writing task: Draw a picture of a Gribble gribbling and write some sentences explaining what you think gribbling is.

Use sentence starters to write two sentences independently.

‘I think that gribbling is….

‘In my picture my Gribble is…..

Write 4/5 sentences using conjunctions to lengthen each sentence e.g. because, so, if, when, and, but.

Write 4/5 sentences using conjunctions to lengthen each sentence. Use a range of punctuation to make you writing more interesting for the reader. ? ! , .
