Monday

Today we would like you to:

  • Get active! There are so many fun ways to do this. Remember to look in our resources section – you will see some fun clips, including some of our favourite Go Noodle dances. Running around outside, making an obstacle course, dancing, or Joe Wicks workouts are also great fun!
  • Read for at least 20 minutes. Remember there are lots of different reading books online as well as actual books, which are also great! We are adding new books to Bug Club each week. Don’t forget, you can also find books on the Oxford Reading tree website.

Phonics

Again this week we would like ALL children in Maple class to take time and look at the phonics.

It is important that you can see the different way that the sounds are written and become familiar with which words fit which pattern.

ay

play

day

may

way

say

spray

 

a-e

make

cake

name

same

late

date

 

ai

paid

snail

tail

train

rain

yawn

 

Spellings

Remember this is for the majority of the class.

These words have been taken from the year 1 and year 2 list of ‘Common Exception’ words.

 

parents

pass

people

poor

prove

past

path

plant

pretty

should

 

If your child is spelling these words correctly then put a couple of these words in a sentence and dictate it. Then check the spelling

For example - She ran a bath for her child after a busy day.

 

English

 

Last week you worked really hard on improving your writing. Well done.

Today we will look more closely at how we use punctuation to show a character is talking. Many children in the maple class had already begun to put in some speech into their stories.

Now we are in the Summer term, it would be a good time to master the punctuation too and the presentation of speech. We will spend two days on this.

 

I would like you to have fun drawing Jack’s mother from ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and then draw a big speech bubble above her. The speech bubble needs to include these words:

We are so poor and you must sell our cow.

Now for the writing bit! When we write a story we cannot draw speech bubbles, we have to write speech in a sentence and this is how it’s done. When someone is talking, you have to put speech marks around what they are saying. Like this. Now you have a go and write out this sentence.

 “We are so poor and you must sell our cow!” sobbed Jack’s mother.

 

Now have a go at drawing another character with a speech bubble and some speech inside then use this picture to help you write the speech below and remember when someone is talking, you have to put speech marks around what they are saying.

Some Golden rules to remember –

  • New speaker on a new line.
  • “   ’’  around the speech.
  • Use the word ‘said’ or alternative to show who has spoken.

We will be looking at the artist ‘William Morris’ this week.

Have you heard that name before?

With a adult this afternoon I would like you to become familiar with who this artist is? How long ago he lived? And what kind of art he created?
