Monday 1st February 2021
I hope you are all well and had a restful weekend.
Let me know if you need any help with the work below or with anything else.
Have a great day
9:00 - 9:30 - Phonics - dropping the 'e'
Watch my video.
Look through the PPT. Read the split digraph words. Look at how to add ing and ed. Recall the 3 different ed sounds. To add er, est and y, follow the same rules.
Watch ‘The Suffix Song’ video. Can you remember the rules for adding suffixes at the end of the song? What is the rule for adding the endings ing, ed, er, est and y to words ending in ‘e’ with a consonant before it?
List some of the split diagraph words you saw and then change them by adding a suffix.
I have put some different activity sheets below too.
I've taken a picture of the board as I realised when I watched it back that you couldn't see it but with Liv being so noisy, I couldn't film it again.
9:30 - 10:00 - Morning Registration and Input
(See zoom link in email)
I need everyone to bring their favourite fruit tally chart to the Zoom call so we can fill in the information together.
10:00 - 10:30 - English Writing
Learning Objective: To be able to use onomatopoeia, alliteration and adjectives.
Today we are writing about how the crow goes through a terrible storm and begins to change.
Here is the opening sentence for you. It tells the reader that Crow is on his journey home through the storm:
The crow began his long journey home through terrible weather.
Sentence 1 - listen to the sounds of the storm. Gather a list of onomatopoeic words - snap, crash, roar, splash, howl, bang...
Now collect some 'angry' words to describe the storm - mad, irate, frustrated, furious, cross, raging....
Here is my sentence: CRASH! HOWL! ROAR! The storm was angry.
Sentence 2 - Look at the pictures of crow in the storm.
Gather some words to describe the storm. We are going to use alliteration with this sentence so see if you can gather some that begin with the same sound - terrible, tremendous, treacherous, mighty, massive, furious, fiery.
Gather verbs to describe what happens to the crow - tossed, tumbled, twisted, turned, twirled, shivered, shuddered, shook...
Here is my sentence: Through powerful downpours, he shivered and shuddered.
Sentence 3 - Look at the black feathers.
These sentences are going to describe how the bright coloured feathers are turned black, dirty and burnt.
Gather adjectives to describe the feathers - singed, sooty, blackened, grubby, darkened...
Here is my sentence: Yellow and orange became grey and sooty. Red and purple turned to dirty and dingy. Blue and green became blackened and singed.
10:45 - 11:15 - English Reading
Learning Objective: To be able to retrieve information from a text and predict what will happen based on the information I have been given.
Listen to the story and then look at the PPT. Today we are using our retrieval viper to answer some questions about the text and then the prediction viper to predict what you think will happen next.
