Monday Dictionary Skills

In our final full week of home learning we will be doing some broader tasks that revise key concepts and incorporate a bit of fun at the same time! Today we are going to recap on our dictionary skills. Start with this 'Dictionary Knowledge Quiz' and see how many you can get right! Remember if you don't have a dictionary or thesaurus at home you can use an online version instead.

Last week as part of our writing project called 'Animal Magic' you wrote a report on an animal of your choice. This is the last week of the project and this week you will be designing a brochure selling merchandise in your animal park gift shop! The brochure can be one side of a page or longer depending on how many items you want to sell. Have a think of the items you would like to buy at a gift shop, for example, t-shirts, pens, hats, etc. You can design these items and write a little description in your brochure. Don't forget to include the price and lots of powerful adjectives to make your visitors want to buy your products!
