On this page you will find a variety of tasks for English this week.
In addition to these tasks, make sure that you are also reading on a regular basis. We look forward to seeing you all quizzing on AR when you have finished your book.
If you cannot print the handwriting sheets then just look at the pattern / words and practise these in your book.
Please email completed work to us so that we can give you feedback.
We recommend you spend 15-20 minutes on each of the individual tasks and these can be done across the week.
Please read through the reading comprehension with your child and talk about it as you go. If they were doing this task at school then they would be doing it as part of a guided group. It is helpful to discuss the text with someone and also talk about the answers.
Each week you will have a 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
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= SUMMARISE ( a brief account of the main points of the story / a particular part of the story)
( The answers are there for you at the end, and you and your grown up can check through when you have finished.)
Each week you will have a writing activity.
Remember to think carefully about;
More importantly- have fun writing!
