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)
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 is linked to your History enquiry this week so I would suggest starting with the History first.
Your grammar task is largely revision of learning we have done about sentence structure but there are answers at the end with a commentary explaining the learning too.
Your spelling task is to practise using different suffixes but you should continue to practise the spellings from our Year 3/4 spelling list also.
Your handwriting task may be trickier to do without a printer but all you need to do is focus on the size of your letters and remember to make your ascenders and descenders clearly stand out.
