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.
Writing continues our theme of poetry this week. You’ll be writing ‘found poems’
Grammar combines our word class learning to focus on nouns, adjectives and verbs – all things we need to understand ready for when we can return to school.
Spelling is a rehearsal week. You will find instructions, strategies and word lists below.
Handwriting is focussed on diagonal joins to the letter ‘y’. Remember that y is a break letter so while we can join to it, we do not join from it.
