Colour the real and nonsense words.-o-e-Split-Digraph-Colour-by-Phoneme-Real-and-Nonsense-Words_

You can still do the phoneme hunt today if you would like to.

Also please have a go at reading some of the real and nonsense words from the pack of work I gave you.

RMT_handwritingphrases_2016

Today I would really like you to focus on letter formation.  Make sure you begin and end your letters in the correct places otherwise it will be tricky to join in Y2.  Also remember to get your bronze certificate your letters need to be the correct size and start and end in the correct place.

Today please focus on the ‘down up’ letters.  

b d  g  h k  m n p q r u w 

When I look at your writing I can tell that some children are starting these letters in the wrong place and making them too big. E.g n some are starting at the bottom and the same for r.  Also I am noticing that r are as big as t which is not right. It should be half the size.  Look above at the size of each letter in relation to the others.

Ask your grown up to set you up some lines like this so you can get the size correct.

————————————————–

_______________________________________________

You know where to start the letters. The chart below and in your homework pack will remind you.

Remember you cannot get your bronze certificate if they are too tall, short or start in the wrong place.

Catch up on My Maths if you have not managed to do any yet.  I will not set any today to give you a chance to get on with it. 

If you have completed all the tasks, you could complete some of your Active Learn tasks.

Yesterday, I asked you to look at similes and to think of some to describe the lion.

Today, (you can complete this tomorrow if you don’t finish it today), I would like you to think of a different animal and make up your own simile poem about it.

You can plan it by drawing a picture of it and then write descriptive words around it as we did with the lion.

Then you can begin it again on another sheet of paper and turn the adjectives into similes.

 

This is Mrs Whyman’s poem.

 

Crazy Crocodile

Skin as rough as stone.

Claws as sharp as knives.

Tail as strong as a bulldozer.

Teeth as sharp as a razor.

Jaws as strong as bull.

 BEWARE!!!!

He will crunch you like a crisp.

I am trying to figure out how to add the videos you send to the Class Story on DOJO from your portfolio.

When your poem is complete. Practice reading it out with expression.  Send me a video and if I cannot add it onto class story I will try to put it on the school website.

Enjoy your day.

Saturday

Sunday

Remember practice them in fun ways.  Cut letters out of magazines and newspapers to make the words.  Get in the garden and write them in chalk, make them from twigs.  Paint the words, make a collage.  write them in flour, sugar soapy lather.

Think of how you can split them into syllables.  E.g. Wed   nes   day
