Phonics

The sound for the week is  / ch/sh /.  This can be represented in a variety of ways which you will find out when you complete the word sort!

 

The spelling list for the week is in the Phonic Activity Homework Book 4.  

We have a well established routine for phonics work in Primary 5.  The try page, wordsort and sentences should be completed as normal. 

 

The Phonic Activity Classwork Book 4  contains the activities we complete in the mornings and again follow a well established routine which your child should be comfortable with. 

 

Monday      - read through the spelling list and complete the wordsort grid 

Tuesday     - complete the "See- it-Right" activity. A picture, a sentence or a definition will show understanding of the word.

Wednesday - highlight any of our spelling sounds that appear in the Scaffolded Text

Thursday     - Dictation sentences 

(Read these out to your child, they repeat the sentence back and then write it down on the dictation page)

1. I made a special parachute from a sheet of material.

2. The chef had to shake the mushrooms in the shallow pan.

3. I had to be sure to read the brochure that came with the machine.

4. The shepherd was under pressure to find the treasure in his field.

Spelling Work 

This weeks spelling activity all about the /sh/ sound and the various representations.

Watch the /sh/ sound PowerPoint.

Then complete the activity below into your Literacy Book.

Remember date, title and WALT.  

WALT: use / sh / representation in words

Handwriting 

We are going to continue to complete one page per week in our handwriting books.  If you have misplaced, lost or finished the booklet then just choose a poem or a paragraph from a book and write that on a plain page.  You have learnt all the joins and now it's just practice and muscle building in order to perfect a beautiful (or just legible!) handwriting style. By now your handwriting should be becoming much more natural and fluid and you should be completing all your Literacy work using the correct letter formation and joins. 

If you have any examples of really good and improved handwriting we'd love to see it!

Daily Grammar 

The grammar activities will be continuing this week.  

This week you should complete days 125- 128 (Monday - Thursday)

 

***It has come to our attention that the Daily Grammar books may have run out last week?!  If this applies to you the activities for June will be ready to collect at the front door over the course of this week (9-4:30pm)  Thank you!***

 

Grammar 

We are going to look at using commas to separate different parts of sentences this week.  We use commas to allow us to add in extra information into our sentences. 

Write out the sentences in your Literacy book.

Please remember how we set out our work.

WALT : understand the use of commas

Writing Activity

Last week we asked you to pick an object in your house or garden to investigate. You were asked to look at what it was made from, what it was for, who was it designed for and any special features.   This week we want you to use your persuasive skills to sell that item to the rest of the class.  You can choose to design a poster using any medium you like.  This means it can be painted, coloured in, use craft materials or photos.  Your poster should include details collected on your worksheet last week.  Make it bright and eye catching. 

As an extension how about making a TV advert?  If you have access to a phone or iPad you could use your family  or your action figures or soft toys to direct and make an advert for your object.  Make a plan, remember to write a script so your filming goes smoothly.  You could be the star of the advert or you could be the camera person.  

Once your poster or advert is completed you can send it to us and we will display them on our page for us all to enjoy.  

This is an opportunity to let your creative skills go wild!  We are expecting great weather this week so get outside in the sun and get creative.
