Thursday 25th June

Welcome to terrific Thursday!

Spellings: Rule 38 ‘cial’ suffix

Use this link: https://spellingframe.co.uk/

  • Click on year 5 & 6 (spelling rule 38 cial)
  • Click on view words.
  • Write them down in your exercise book, checking you have spelled them correctly.
  • Then press ‘play’ in the top righthand corner
  • Click on spelling tiles.
  • Each day use 1 of the games until you have gone on each game (5 games each week)

Remember, you will need to complete the spelling test on Friday, so it is a good idea to practice writing some of these words each day too.

 

English: A Bear called Paddington

Today’s the day when you are going to start to write your story, but you are not going to write the whole chapter in one day! Today, you are going to be focusing on writing the opening and build-up of your story. You can choose the write it by hand, or type it on a computer…the choice is yours. You will need to:

  • Organise your writing into paragraphs
  • Vary the start of your sentences (ISPACE)
  • Description: Include detail to interest the reader: think carefully about what you need to describe, and your choice of vocabulary. You are writing for a younger audience (6-8 year-olds), so try to use words they will understand, and think about what detail they would like to know about.  (adjectives, expanded noun phrases, similes, adverbs etc)
  • Relative clauses. Think back to your work earlier this week, can you include some relative clauses within your writing?  
  • Can you create a bit of suspense in your build-up? The reader should be getting the impression that something disastrous is about to happen.
  • Punctuation: obviously you should be using CAPITAL LETTERS AND FULL STOPS, but also try to include commas, semi-colons, brackets, and if including speech, inverted commas.

I can’t wait to read the starts of your chapters!

Having listened to your feedback from last week, some of you preferred the white rose maths, and some preferred the NCETM videos. So, I am going to offer a choice. You can either do the white rose or  the NCETM videos. There is no right or wrong option, it is what best suits you. Either lesson will benefit your child.

NCETM Year 5/6
