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= 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.)
Each week I will give you a creative writing activity so that you are still keeping up with your writing!
Remember to think carefully about;
More importantly- have fun writing!
Please send me any of your writing. I would love to read it.
Each week I will give you a different spelling activity, looking at some of the spelling patterns we need to learn about in Year 2.
I would also like you to keep practising the spellings of the words on the Year 2 word list.
You can use Look Cover Say Write Check for this, you can write them in a sentence, you can Rainbow Write them, write them back to front. Use all of the ways we use in class to help us learn our spellings!
