Happy Monday


I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for the last week of home learning. 


See you at 9:30am.


Mrs Bennett

9:00 - 9:30 - Phonics - Consonant Suffixes


Look at the PowerPoint and the consonant suffixes. When adding a consonant suffix there is no need to change the root word ending, unless the root word ends in a y. In this case, the y should be changed to an i before adding the consonant. Look at the +er +est Machine. See how the ‘y’ is changed to an i before adding.


Watch the flashcards video.


Write sentences containing as many of these new words as possible.


Change the meaning of the words the monsters are saying changing the suffix. 

Suffixes - ment, ness, less and ful

9:30 - 10:00 - Morning Registration and Input

10:00 - 10:30 - English - Writing


Learning Objective: To be able to use verbs and question marks.


Learning Chunk 1:


Look at the picture of the guards chasing the hat. Pretend you are a guard and chase something around your house. Whilst you are chasing it, think of other verbs to describe what you are doing. 



Gather verbs: chased, sprinted, dashed, ran, scampered, charged, bounded, darted, flew...


Here is my sentence: The guards sprinted after the hat.


(You could deepen the moment by adding a bit more information to your sentence. You could add an adverb to describe how they are running: quickly, rapidly, as quick as a flash.... You could describe where they are running: the dashed along the footpath after the hat, along the pavement, through the streets....)


Learning Chunk 2


In this sentence we are going to use repetition to emphasis how much they are running. 


Listen to a little bit of the video below of the sound of running feet. What sounds are the feet making on the pavement?

Gather sound words: stomp, thud, patter, pitter, tip, tap, click , clack...


Here is my sentence: Pitter patter, pitter patter went their boots. 


(You could deepen the moment by adding detail to where they are running: on the hard pavement, on the concrete path...)


Learning Chunk 3


In this chunk we are going to use a question mark. 


Look at the hat being blown away. 



Now watch the first 30seconds of this video of a feather blowing in the wind.

Gather some words to describe how the feather is moving: wafting, drifting, twisting, twirling, spinning, whirling, whizzing, fluttering...


Here is my question: Where was the hat drifting to? 


(You could deepen the moment by adding more question. Would the hat come back? Would the Queen see it again? ...)
