Week 3 (20.4.20)

ENGLISH

English Lesson 1

 

Below is a list of words. Sort the words into their different word class groups. Word class just means what the job of the word is! Here are the definitions of the classes to help you.

 

Adjectives - words which describe something.

Verbs - a word which shows an action.

Adverbs - words which show how a verb/action is performed.

Conjunctions - words which are used to link parts of a sentence together.

Nouns: common nouns - the name of a simple object. Proper nouns - the official title of a place or a person.

 

Also attached is an idea of how you might like to set your word class table out along with some examples to get you started!

 

Words to sort:

 

LESSON 2 + 3

 

For Lesson 2, please read the prologue from a story called ‘Pog’.

Use today’s lesson to read the story, understand what is happening in the text and answer the first set of questions.

 

IF you are struggling with ‘Pog’, then attempt the second text we have attached called ‘Clever Cakes’ instead. Answer the first set of questions for ‘Clever Cakes’.

 

For Lesson 3, answer the rest of the questions for the text you are working on.

 

To clarify - you ONLY need to work on ONE text. The expectation is that everybody attempts ‘Pog’ but if you are really struggling with this, then try ‘Clever Cakes’ instead of ‘Pog’.

LESSON 3 POG and Clever Cakes Further Questions

LESSONS 4+5

 

For Lesson 4 and 5, we would like you to write a letter to a friend in Year 5.

 

This is the perfect chance to communicate to one of your friends and find out how they are doing! Choose somebody you might not have spoken to much whilst at home - a letter is a great way of communicating what you have been doing!

 

When your letter is finished, you may email it into the Year 5 home learning email address and then we will send the photo of your letter to your friend for them to read! Hopefully, you may even get a reply from your friend.

 

Points for parents:

We will only send your child’s letter to the parent of the child they are writing to.

We will not forward your email so no email addresses will be shared, only the letters that your child has written.

No surnames or addresses will be used in the letters and no private information will be shared.

 

If you do not wish for your letter to be sent to another child in Year 5, then you can choose an ‘imaginary’ person to write to or a family member!

 

 

LESSON 4: 

Use today’s lesson to draft your letter and have a practice writing it.

 

Things you could include -

What you’ve been up to over Easter

Activities or things you have been doing at home 

How you have been finding your home learning/work you have been doing

Any memories of you and your friend?

Anything you would like to ask your friend about their time at home?

 

 

LESSON 5:

 

Use today’s lesson to edit any spellings and punctuation and write your letter up in best.

Then, take a photo and submit it to year5homelearning@theridgeway.reading.sch.uk

School is CLOSED on 1st June to allow staff to prepare for reopening. School will reopen to some pupils from 2nd June - if your child has been allocated a place in school you will have received a letter. Please contact the school office by phone or email if you think your child should be returning to school but haven't had a letter. Stay safe.
