Welcome back everyone!
I hope you all had an enjoyable Easter with your families. I certainly did but I must say I am missing seeing everyone. I’m so pleased we are back together (at least via the website) and I have plenty of fun and challenging activities for you to do this week 🙂
First, some subtraction in Maths, including some challenges where you have to find the missing digit. Followed by some spelling practise in English – use a dictionary or Google to help you if you don’t know how to spell a word.
And remember, if you want to keep improving your story writing skills, the author Frank Cottrell Boyce has done some brilliant writing lessons (Writing Wrinkles) on his Instagram account – https://www.instagram.com/frank_cottrell_boyce/?hl=en.
Check them out, or if not just write a story about something of your choice. Remember to use all of the skills we have learnt this year:
- good punctuation (Capital letters, full stops, commas, question marks, capital letters for names of people and places)
- apostrophes (to show missing letters when using a contraction – it’s, wouldn’t – and when showing singular and plural possession – The dog’s basket or The babies’ prams)
- fronted adverbials (to show when, where or how something happened – Today, In the eerily quiet forest, Suddenly…)
- correct use of speech marks when using dialogue (including punctuation before opening and closing the speech marks – “Get off the grass!” shouted the headmaster, “I have told you it’s not allowed.”)
Have fun and speak tomorrow.
Mrs Myers 🙂
