Swift Class w/c 18th May

Hello Super Swifts!

This is your last week of home learning work before half term. 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 webpage. 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.

Look out for Thursday’s English lesson – I would like you to cook or bake something and write the recipe.

Enjoy your half term break!
From Miss Harvey 😊

Today read the story ‘Animal Recipes’ and look for the bossy verbs

Write each of your spellings into a sentence in your workbook then then play spelling games on spelling tiles https://spellingframe.co.uk/spelling-rule/86/9-The-l-sound-spelt-al-at-the-end-of-words I recommend sorting segments and segment silhouettes.

Thursday

We are going to look at ‘Animal Recipes’ again today. Re-read the text and look at the layout and features of instruction texts. Can you now make something to eat? It could be as simple as a sandwich!
