Try your best!  

 

Handwriting Tips:

1. Use a sharp pencil 

2. Practise letter formation with your 'Magic Finger' before you form your letters on paper 

3. Trace over the letter or word before you try your own formation 

4. Take your time and be as neat as possible 

Comprehension

We will complete 1 comprehension activity per week.

 

This Week: 

Ways of Travelling 

Children should read over the short text and endeavour to answer questions as fully and independently as possible. If your child finds reading the given text difficult, we would encourage you to read it aloud for them. Answers should be written, where possible, in full sentences. 

Please remember:

  • Capital letters at the beginning of each sentence
  • Full stops at the end of each sentence 
  • Finger spaces between words
  • To check your work – have you left anything out? Does your sentence make sense? 

Grammar

 

This week we are learning about compound words. A compound word is when two words (nouns) join together to make a new word – E.G. snow + man = snowman 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zcgv39q/articles/z38t6fr 

Watch this little clip with your children – it gives some guidance and examples (they will also enjoy the little monster illustrations)  

 

Game

Open the PowerPoint entitled ‘Compound Nouns’ and play with your child. Encourage your child to write the sentences using compound words independently – make sure they are writing the compound word as one word and are not writing the two separately.

*Remember that there is always the opportunity to extend learning by adding in examples of your own – a good way to do this is to do a dictionary hunt. Give your child a dictionary and ask them to find compound words – can they explain their choices? 

 

Worksheet

(can be printed and completed or can be written into purple Literacy Classwork Books) 

Children are asked to make compound words using the pictures or words given on the worksheet. Encourage your child to say the words out loud both ways and ask which makes sense. They will quickly catch onto this and they should be able to complete the activity independently. When asked to write sentences using compound words, encourage them to check their writing for punctuation and for meaning. 

Independent/Creative Writing

 

Frog Life Cycle 

 

This week we are learning about the lifecycle of a frog. 

Before you begin, allow children to watch ‘Come Outside’ (linked below) where Aunty Mabel and Pippin find out all about frogs.

After you have watched the video, open the PowerPoint entitled ‘Frog Life Cycle’ and talk through each stage with your child. Do this a couple of times to ensure they are familiar with each stage of the life cycle (Frogspawn, Tadpole, Froglet, Frog). 

 

Next, print sequencing worksheet (or copy into Literacy Classwork Book) and complete. Children should stick the correct picture in the box to complete the cycle. Children should then, independently, write a few sentences about the frog life cycle.   

 

Colour to finish. 

 

Children, send a picture of your completed life cycle to your teacher – we would love to see them!
