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 VOCABULARY
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 (saying what happened in a shorter way)
(The answers are there for you at the end, and you and your grown up can check through when you have finished)
Writing, Grammar, Spelling and Handwriting
These tasks are designed to give you a chance to extend your writing skills in the key areas. They can be printed or completed in your book or on a piece of paper.
The writing task gives you a choice of three writing activities based on our science learning.
Your grammar task continues our learning about conjunctions this week. Now it is time to use conjunctions to join simple sentences in our writing to create compound and complex sentences for effect.
Your spelling task is about the /I/ sound and unusual ways of spelling it.
Your handwriting task is to join to the letter ‘k’
