Wednesday, 10th January

Welcome to wonderful Wednesday!

Spellings: Rule 23:cial or tial?

Using the same video from yesterday to remind yourself of the spelling rule, practise the remaining words from the lists. Can you explain how the rule works to someone in your family?

Reading:

From the book you have been reading this week on the Oxford Owl, create your own 3 questions that you could ask a classmate to answer about the text. Make them as tricky as you can!

Writing:

Today is letter writing day! Using your plan from yesterday and your questions from Monday, you will be writing your own letter to ask questions about your dream job. Remember, some of these will be answered by real people in that job! Remember the correct layout and make sure you show off your best presentation skills. I look forward to seeing these on Class Dojo.

Maths:

You could also try selecting division to practice using your knowledge of times tables to solve related division questions.
