To learn with respect and belief; to challenge, create and dream!

Week Beginning 4th May 2020

This week continue collecting things for the second page (photos, family pictures, artwork etc).  Also complete the page titled, Special Occasions. 
If you need time, spend the first part of the week finishing your own story based on the Faraway Tree.  It would be great to read some of these and put them on the website for others to share.  Email the school office with your stories and we will share these as they come to us on our scrapbook page
This week the children will learn how to use sentences with different forms: statement, question, exclamation and command.  This will reinforce some of the work already covered this year, including the relevant punctuation. 

Friday 8th May 2020

Today we would like you to create a poster inviting people to your VE day party.  Try and use the different sentence types that we have looked at during the week.  Be creative and have fun.  Click on the link below to see a boring example.  I'm sure you can do better!

Thursday 7th May 2020

The final sentence type is a statement. Statements are the most common type of sentence. They tell the reader a fact or idea about a single topic. They must always end in punctuation, usually a full stop.  Click on the link to watch the video, and then complete the worksheet which reviews all of the different sentence types. 

As today's session won't take too long, we have provided a few links so the children can learn more about VE day. This would have been a special bank holiday tomorrow.  Tomorrow's English task, will get the children to create a poster inviting people to their VE day celebration party.  As well as using images and colourful writing, we hope the children will be able to use the different sentence types and their punctuation. 

Wednesday 6th May 2020

Today's session will look at creating command sentences.  Command sentences are used when you are telling someone to do something.  Commands usually start with an imperative verb , also known as a 'bossy verb', because they tell someone to do something.

"Fetch me some biscuits."

In this example, 'fetch' is the imperative verb.  You may want to review what a verb is. 


Choose as many of the activities below to complete:

  • Make a list of verbs.  Choose a verb and act out a mime.  Can the other person guess which verb is being performed. 
  • Highlight the imperative verbs.  This can be found through the same link as the video.  Just scroll down a little further. 
  • Open up the missing verb document.  Read the instructions and choose which verb is missing. 
  • Open up the instruction examples and try to make one of these. 

Tuesday 5th May 2020

Today's session will focus on asking questions. This is an area that we have studied before. Click on the video link to find out about asking questions. 

Then complete the activities below:

  • Practice spelling the question words.  What patterns do you notice? 
  • Write each question word on A5 paper and then play matching pairs.  This requires turning over two pieces of paper and hopefully matching two question words that are the same. If not turn them back over and allow the next person to have a go. 
  • Turn over a question word and create a silly question.
  • Complete the activity sheet below choosing the correct piece of punctuation to end the sentence. Copy out each sentence in your book.  This will be great handwriting practice too. 


Monday 4th May 2020

Today the children will learn about the exclamation sentence. Click on the link to find out all about it.  Then complete the following tasks:

  • Read your story from last week and look for any exclamation sentences you used. If there aren't many, can you add a few more to improve the story.
  • Exclamation spotting.  Look through the book you are reading now and tally how many exclamation marks have been used. 
  • Look at the power point below, and write your own exclamation sentence to go with each example, ie. surprise and anger.
