READING

This week you have a non fiction reading comprehension to complete.

Read the text carefully and then write the answers to each of the questions, in sentences, on a piece of paper or in a notebook.

The first 5 questions are about RETRIEVAL this week.

The next 5 questions follow VIPERS, like we use in class.

 

V= VOCABULARY ( finding the meaning of words in context, other words that mean the same thing)

I= INFERENCE ( 'reading between the lines' and using clues from the text, without the author actually telling us.)

P= PREDICTION ( suggesting what might/could happen)

E= EXPLAIN ( giving details about what has happened)

R= RETRIEVE ( finding the answers from the text)

S= SEQUENCE ( the order of events in the story)

 

( The answers are there for you at the end, and you and your grown up can check through when you have finished.)

WRITING ACTIVITY

Here is your writing activity for this week. I loved reading some of your writing from last week about the one meal you would choose to eat for the rest of your life!

 

Remember to think carefully about;

  • your finger spaces
  • your neat handwriting
  • your choice of interesting and exciting vocabulary( use a dictionary or thesaurus if you have one at home, or use an online version)
  •  reading through your work as you write, to check that it makes sense
  • making any changes as you write.

SPELLING

Here are your spelling activities for this week.

1- this first task is looking at the 'r' sound being spelt with the digraph 'wr'

2- the second task is a passage of text that Mr Whoops has spelt incorrectly, You must look for the Year 1/2 common exception words that he has spelt incorrectly and highlight them.

Then you need to write him a list of words that he needs to practise. Make sure YOU spell them correctly!
