Teaching Notes

Spelling activities can be completed each day in the familiar format as follows:

Monday- Find and write out dictionary definitions for the first 4 of your spellings using an online or paper dictionary.

Tuesday- Choose 4 of your spellings and put these into sentences. Remember to be creative and use sentences we have looked at this year such as 2A, simile and list.

Wednesday- Write all of your spellings in alphabetical order.

Thursday- Learn your spellings using the 'look, say, cover, write, check' table provided beneath the spelling list.

Friday- Complete a test on your spellings. 

Our grammar focus this week will be antonyms. Antonyms are just words that have opposite meanings e.g. 'big' is an antonym for 'small'. Some words can have more than one antonym, for example, 'enormous' and 'massive' are also antonyms for 'small'. Try the quiz in the PowerPoint provided to see if you can work out the antonyms. 

Tuesday Talking & Listening and First News iHub

For Talking & Listening this week, choose at least 3 of the question cards provided to start a discussion with a member of your household.
Apostrophes are used for two main reasons. Firstly, they can be used in contractions to show where letters have been removed when two words are joined together e.g. "do not" becomes "don't" and the apostrophe shows where the "o" in "not" has been removed. They can also be used to show possession, but we are just going to focus on their use in contractions for today. Follow the PowerPoint to see some commonly used contractions.  
This week our comprehension will be done on Thursday and our writing will be done on Friday. We have swapped these tasks because the comprehension on Thursday will help you with your writing task on Friday. Both tasks will focus on 'Revolting Recipes', a fun part of our Instructions topic!
One of the most well known revolting recipes comes from Roald Dahl's 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. Watch the video provided to get an idea of how to make your own revolting recipe. Use these ideas to inspire your own gruesome and disgusting recipes!
