Today we are learning the features of a newspaper report. There are two ways of presenting your work which I mention in the lesson. You could annotate the document on your tablet using the annotation tools or write the features into your book. Whichever works best. Any questions, let me know. :)
Today we are using one part of 'The Christmas Eve Tree' to create speech sentences. There is a starter activity focused on sorting words by their word class.

Here is the end part of the lesson where I read the story to you. Enjoy.
Literacy 2/12/20 (Part 1)
Today in Literacy we are going to be looking at the front cover of our Christmas text called 'The Christmas Eve Tree'. We are then going to make some predictions on what we think the story will be about, what will happen and who the main character is. At the end you can listen to me read the story to you.
I've had to split the video in two because I had some issues when recording the story part! Apologies for that.
Spelling Lesson (Mr Walsh's Literacy Set) 2/12/20
A choice of activity ideas available to practice the spelling words for this week.
Literacy (All Classes) 30/11/20
Today's lesson is the first lessons of a new writing unit on Newspaper Reports. The book focus will be 'The Christmas Eve Tree' by Delia Huddy. The first lesson of a new writing unit is always what we call; a 'Hook Lesson' (or Experience Lesson). These lessons are often fun and exciting with the aim of inspiring the children and get them engaged in the new topic.
As our new text focus is Christmas-themed, we have set a couple of Christmas tasks today. The first one is creating a craft Christmas tree out of handprints and the second option is writing your letter to Santa. Have a think about what you would like to do and give one of these a go. Enjoy!
Today the children will be introduced to their new spelling list and spelling rule. They will then look up the different definitions of the spelling words to find out what each word means using an online dictionary. They will need pen/pencil and blank paper for this task. Once they have found what a word means they can write down a short definition with each word.
I will say now, this spelling rule is quite a complex one but don't worry about that!
