This week we are going to learn about different types of angles. There are no videos this week but please email us if you would like more explanations. The pack below has information for each day. The worksheets can be found on the correct days.
Goal: To write questions.
Warm up- Think of a sentence.
Here are 5 letters of the alphabet- M A T L D
You must create a 5 word sentence with each word beginning with the letters given.
For example- My auntie Tracey likes dancing.
You should have now read or listened to the first 3 chapters of Charlotte’s Web and therefore you will know a bit more about Wilbur, the pig.
Today, you should write at least 10 questions for Wilbur. Think about what has happened in the story so far. Try to be creative with your questions! Remember they need a capital letter and a question mark!
How did you feel about being the runt?
How did you feel when Fern saved you from being killed?
After you have written your questions, you should get someone at home to ask you them. You should answer the questions how you think Wilbur would. (You could even use a funny voice!!)
Goal- To create a mind map
Warm up- Odd one out
Which is the odd one out? Discuss with someone at home and let us know what you think. You have to justify your thoughts!
Book Magazine TV Radio Internet
Yesterday, you wrote down lots of questions for Wilbur using the knowledge of what you have read.
You should use this knowledge to create a mind map about Wilbur. What do we know about him? What does he look like? What personality traits does he show? Where does he live? What does he like to eat? Remember Wilbur is a pig so use this to help you if you cannot remember what happened in the story! You will need this mind map to help you tomorrow so try to think of as many ideas as possible.
Here are some to start you off-
Goal: To write a character description
Try to make as many words as you can with the letters in the grid. You could create a grid for someone at home to try.
Today, you will use the learning from last week and yesterday to write a character description for Wilbur. You should include-
As Wilbur rolled around in the filthy, gooey mud he heard a familiar sound. His piercing blue eyes stared at the slops as Fern poured them into his large trough. His rough, bristled body waddled over to the delightful sight of gone off fruit and vegetables.
Goal: To edit a piece of writing
What is editing and why do we edit our work? Discuss.
When you are editing your work at school what do you need to look out for?
Can you think of anything else?
Have a go at editing ‘Stella’s first day’ using the toolkit above to help you. Re-write the text correctly. Can you improve any of the words?
Then, edit your character description of Wilbur. You can use a different coloured pen to do this. Perhaps you have forgotten to include a feature. You can now add this in.
Goal: To add the prefixes dis-, mis- and un- to words to create new words.
Prefixes are groups of letters added to the beginning of a word, changing its meaning.
Today you will be looking at the prefixes, un-, mis- and dis-. Can you find out the meanings of these prefixes? Think about the meanings of words when you add these prefixes to help you.
Complete the sorting activity sheet by adding the prefixes to the words provided. You can choose which sheet you do. 1 star- Easier 3 stars-Harder. Then choose 3 words and write them in a sentence.
This week we are going to continue to read Charlotte's Web
