Good morning Ash Class. It is important that you fit your learning into a time table which works best for you, but below is our suggested format for you. Please remember if you have any problems with today's work to send Miss Bridges an email at email@example.com. We would also love to see photographs of your work today. Good luck with your challenges.
Lo: To write the beginning of a story
Warm-up: to use apostrophes for singular possession.
An apostrophe can be used to show that one thing belongs to or is connected to something. This is called a possessive apostrophe.
Let's take a look at some examples.
The cat's tail was fluffy.
Cat is a singular noun so you need to add an apostrophe and "s" to show that the tail belongs to the cat.
Charles' cat was naughty.
Charles is a singular noun that ends in an "s", so you need to add an apostrophe to show that the cat belongs to Charles.
The brothers' feet were muddy.
Brothers is a plural noun that ends in an "s" so you don't add another "s" after your apostrophe. You can just add an apostrophe to show the feet belongs to the brothers.
The children's toys were broken
Children is a plural noun but it doesn't end with an "s" so you need to add an apostrophe and "s" to show that the toys belong to the children.
Have a look at the sentences below, which ones use apostrophes correctly?
Main: To write a story beginning
Remember our over goal this week is to write our own adventure story. It needs to include your characters entering a portal, in Manea, which takes them to a new land. Whilst there they embark on some form of an adventure- and meet other mythical creatures.
Most stories have a beginning, middle and end.
Today we are going to start to write our beginnings.
Lo: To explore the vocabulary from a text further
Warm-up: Read the following extract and answer the inference questions.
Main: Last week, we looked at the vocabulary which would feature in the text 'The City'. Revisit this again today- can you remember what they mean?
Lo: To recognise a new word- tenacious
Have a look at Mr Lenton's video for tenacious. Can you then find the synonyms and word pairs? Have a look at the sentences and see if you can find the missing words.
Lo: Solve Two step addition word problems.
Starter: To mentally solve addition problems.
Can you solve the problems below in your head?
Lo: To practise texture and tone
Warm up- Which animal is the odd one out? There isn't necessarily a right or wrong answer. Can you think of a reason why each animal could be the odd one out?
Main- Last week, we explored and researched different animal habitats. Watch the video below, or click on the link below in order to remind yourselves of this.
Can you make your own habitat for an animal? You could make a habitat outside using some of the ideas from the Wildlife Trust below. Or you could make a shoe box version of a larger habitat e.g. The Rainforest. Make sure you write some sentences about what makes your habitat suitable for the animals that live there.
