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 task this week will focus on using seen/saw and did/done accurately. These words are often mixed up so the PowerPoint can be used to explain when each word is used and why. After looking through the PowerPoint, have a go at the activities provided in the step 1, 2 or 3 stars.

Tuesday Talking & Listening and First News iHub

On Tuesday we will focus on both Talking & Listening and completing a task using the First News iHub. For Talking & Listening this week we want the children to work on their ability to provide clear instructions as well as listen to and follow instructions. Please see the task description for more details. 


Follow the link below to access the First News iHub. For more information and login details please see the First News iHub star in the P6 section. 

Our punctuation focus for this week is revision of using capital letters and full stops accurately. As you know capital letters are used at the beginning of sentences and full stops at the end. It may also be useful to use the poster provided to recap on using capital letters for different types of proper nouns. The video link is a fun and silly song the children can sing and dance along to in order to reinforce these important punctuation rules.
For the next couple of weeks P6 will be working on writing instructions. Instructions can be written for many reasons including recipes, directions, how to build something or how to play a game. The children could start by finding as many different types of instructions they can around the home. There is then a link to a video outlining the features of instructions. Finally, it is up to the children to create their own set of instructions for another family member to try and carry out. Please read the task description for more details. 
On Friday the children will complete a comprehension task. This week they will be looking at a recipe text to fit in with our instructions topic. Questions and answers are provided within the step 1, 2 or 3 stars.
