In English today, we will be continuing our new writing sequence... SUPERHEROES!
This will all lead up to you pretending to be a reported for a newspaper and writing all a newspaper report about the bus disaster we read about from the book, 'My Brother is a Superhero!'
This week, we will continue the sequence like we always do, by developing and learning all of the grammar techniques we will be using in our piece of writing.
Today, is our second lesson on using DIRECT SPEECH.
You may want to take another look at the PowerPoint slides on punctuating speech from yesterday, to help you to remember all the rules for including speech correctly.
Take a look at the worksheet below. There is a report on the bus disaster but the reporter forgot to put in inverted commas to show direct speech. Can you help them by copying out the paragraph and including the inverted commas?
For the next few weeks or so we will be focusing on 'Multiplication and Division'.
This morning we would like you to look at: Multiplying 3 digits by a 1 digit number
Watch the video first. You will need to keep pausing this to have a go at the tasks.
Then, complete the worksheet. Remember, the later questions are normally problem solving and reasoning questions so give these your best shot. You may need a little bit of adult explanation for these.
This week we are focusing on chapter 7/8. If you haven't read this yet, go ahead and read it now before the task (See attachment).
Today, our skill in focus is inference. Inference is when you think something based on evidence from the text. For example, we could infer Wilbur is happy to meet Charlotte because he has a smile on his face.
Once you have read the chapters, have a go at the worksheet below.
