Click on the picture below to access the booklet. Here you will find a series of activities to do with your child. This may take longer than a week, which is fine - the important thing is that your child enjoys and remembers the learning, and tries to produce something they are proud of!
Reading - please keep up with your reading at home. Here are a few activities you can do with the book you are currently reading:
- Character Profile - create a character profile of the main character and include a drawing of them, a description of their characteristics, who else they link to in the story, what they like/dislike and a set of questions you would like to ask them.
- Sentence Hunter - find 5 sentences in your story that contain a relative clause (a clause that starts with 'who, which etc).
- Vocabulary Detective - Find 5 words that you are unfamiliar with. Find out what they mean (using a dictionary or Google), write the definition in your home learning books and then write the word in a sentence of your own (to show you understand how to use it in context).
Looking forward to seeing all of your super home learning for our new topic. It's one of my favourites. Click on the icon to see the topic grid.
