Friday 5th Feb
Today is FLUENCY FRIDAY! It's all about reading fluently and with expression! We do this at school on Fridays and it's a fantastic chance to explore different texts and improve on our ability to read fluently. We're going to be using the poem- The Pig by Roald Dahl. (We're keeping on our pig theme but looking at a different text for the day- don't worry, we haven't forgotten Wilbur!)
Watch and listen to the video of today's poem being read. Notice how the reader is performing fluently and is using her voice to give emphasis and expression.
Then, have a go at reading the poem and performing it yourself. Do plenty of practice and try using the techniques like using voices or emphasizing certain words. You could video yourself doing this and send it to your teacher. The poem is quite long so you may wish to choose just a section to perform allowed. We can't wait to hear and see your performances!
In English today, we will be continuing our new writing sequence... MARY POPPINS!
This will all lead up to writing a diary entry as though you have spent the week with Mary Poppins herself!
Today we are looking at SPELLING! This is the next part of our writing sequence!
You will be having a go at using different ways of practicing the ten words below.
These are all words you should have come across in your vocabulary work last week.
You could check their meaning before you start if you're not sure.
The slides underneath will talk you through the activities. There are some sheets too which you can use for a couple of the activities.
Once you have finished, give yourself a little spelling test and see if you have managed to remember them all!
Words to practice:
For the next few weeks or so we will be focusing on 'Fractions'.
This morning we would like you to look at: Tenths
Watch the video first. You will need to keep pausing this to have a go at the tasks.
There are slides too (same as the video) if you need to look at this more slowly and carefully.
Then, complete the worksheet. Look at the questions on a screen and write your answers on paper. 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 is the final lesson in our unit looking at Family (La Familia).
In this learn you will learn the two different words for 'my' in Spanish and when they should be used.
