Phonics / Spelling / SPAG
Each day spend 5 minutes practising your spellings. I have attached new lists for those children who are ready to move on.
Choose one of the following activities to do each day:
Daily reading - spend about 5 minutes reading a book of your own choice. Remember you can use Oxford Owl if you wish - Oxford Owl
This week our focus for English is Poetry.
Tuesday - Watch the video and listen to the poem ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’. Here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpwAP36-w7E Download the poem to read together. Children who find reading a little tricky can read the first verse only.
Read the poem and see if you can identify any repeated phrases. Underline or write the phrase in your book. Can you spot any rhyming words? Write the matching pairs in your book. Are there any words you have not heard of before? Talk to your adult about what they might mean.
Wednesday - Download the Comprehension sheets for ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’. Re-read the poem then answer the questions. Write the answers in your book. There are three different levels so please choose the level most appropriate for your child.
Thursday – Re-read the poem thinking about the following features:
Year 1 - Draw and label the characters in your book. Write a sentence to describe the setting. Write a sentence to describe what happens.
Year 2 - As Year 1 (see above) Can you also write a sentence to explain why this is a 'nonsense' poem?
Friday - 'Free write Friday'.
