This week for a warm up, I would like you to play these punctuation games. The first one is about finding the missing full stops. In the second game 'small town super heroes' you can click to play 'punctuation' games. There are a few different ones. You could try the capital letters, question marks and exclamation marks games or for an extra challenge the one called 'all punctuation.'
For your main activity I would like you to write a letter telling someone in your family or a friend or me about some of the things that you have been doing.
Try and include some of the punctuation, sentence types and conjunctions that we have been talking about over the last few weeks.
full stops and capital letters
words such as and, or , but to make your sentences longer
You could write it to somebody that does not live with you. Maybe you could post it to them or ask your grown up to take a photograph of it and send it to them to read.
Watch the clip below and I will show the sorts of things that you could write.
This week you will be learning about shape. We will be looking at 2D shapes and thinking about how to describe them. Watch the two powerpoints. You will need a pencil and paper to write down a list of important words that I want you to use in your work today.
I would like you to choose 4 shapes to describe. Just on a plain piece of paper, draw the shape and write some sentences to describe it underneath. Remember to write about the vertices (corners), sides (curved or straight) and if the sides are equal. Use your word lists to help you. I look forward to seeing your shape riddles. If it is helpful, you could use this shape mat.
Today your challenge is to follow my instructions to draw a picture. You will need a pencil, crayons or felt tips, and a piece of paper. Good luck!
Well, how did you do? I would love to see some of your pictures. I wonder if my instructions were clear? Could I improve them? Have a go at drawing a picture and tell someone else the instructions needed to draw it too. Will it look the same as yours? Have fun!
If you want to email me your work, I would love to see it. I hope that you and your families have a lovely weekend. Well done for all your hard work.
