English

On this page you will find a variety of tasks for English this week.

If you cannot print the handwriting sheets then just look at the pattern / words and practise these in your book.

For spellings, we would like you to continue to learn the spellings from your list (these are in last week's folder).  If you are feeling confident then you could practise writing these in sentences without looking at the words.

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.

 

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.)

WRITING ACTIVITY

Each week you will have a writing activity. 

Remember to think carefully about;

  • your neat handwriting
  • your spelling
  • use of adverbial detail 
  • 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

 

More importantly- have fun writing!
