Monday 8th June
Last week, we had a big focus on our reading skills. This week, we are reminding ourselves of some grammar skills to help us get back into the flow of our writing next week when we are back in school. So this week we have grammar revision (but it fun ways) and the end result will be putting it all together to write a super piece of writing for Friday. The areas we will cover are: prepositional phrases, subordinating conjunctions, active and passive voice and expanded noun phrases.
The Powerpoint for this week has all this week's lessons on it and even includes little warm up activities relating to spelling and reading before you start each lesson.
Below there are also the warm ups to do on Tuesday and Wednesday morning like you would in school at the start of the day. Just select your star level once you have opened up the document.

Today we are practising our spellings relating to the 'tricky' words, words that don't necessarily follow a pattern as well as finalising what we know about double consonants. Complete pages 8-10 of the Year 5 and 6 handwriting practise sheets and first of all practise your handwriting. Then complete the two cross word sheets. You are all very good and getting creative with your spellings- so today... produce in your own format a presentation of some sort that shows how you learn these spellings. It could be a 'Powerpoint', a poster, a picture etc- you choose! Post your creative pieces on our blog and have fun.
