In this lesson, we are writing the next paragraph of our newspaper reports including the detail of the traffic incident. We are aiming to include some speech and interesting sentence openers. Follow the video and build your writing up step-by-step.
It is the last spelling test of this term! As normal, I will say the words in the video and you will need to write them down before checking your answers at the end. If you need more time to write the word then pause the video and if you need to hear the word(s) again then rewind it. Good luck! Next week, I will set up SpellingShed so the children may practice spellings from the last term if they would like to. We will then look at a new spelling rule when we come back in January.
For today's literacy we are starting by focusing on being able to identify and use different conjunctions to extend our sentences. The main focus of the lesson is being able to write a newspaper headline where you will end up writing different headlines you might use for our newspaper story about the The Christmas Eve Tree.
F is for flower spellings!
Draw a big flower and write each of your spelling words on one of the petals (10 petals total). You can choose to colour it in as well if you would like.
As a reminder, here are your spelling words for this week:
In today's lesson, we are focusing on writing in the past tense. For your activities we are changing sentences from the present tense to the past tense as well as sorting verbs by whether they are in the past or present tense. No worksheet needed today as all the sentences to rewrite are in the video!
For today's spellings, try to write all your words from the list forwards...and then backwards!
For example, for 'careful' I would write:
To remind you these are your spelling words for this week:
Remember you can also do some additional practice on SpellingShed if you wish to as well.
In today's lesson, we are looking at identifying the features of an opening paragraph in a newspaper report. You can choose to either print off the worksheet (link below) and colour in the features directly on there or you can write the 5 W's - who, what, where, when, why - and write down the corresponding information from the paragraph next to them. After that we will also attempt to write our own opening paragraph based on the events of the Christmas Eve Tree.
In this lesson we introduce our new spelling rule - adding the suffixes '-ful' and '-less' onto the end of root words. We will look at how it alters the meaning of the word depending on what ending you use and show your spelling list for the test this week at the end. Remember you can also do extra practice on Spelling Shed if you would like to as well.
