Hope you are okay and have had a good weekend.
Here is your work for Monday.
This week in spelling we are going to look at common letter strings including prefixes and suffixes. Please take the first five words ( chaos , character, Christmas , chord and chorus ) Learn what they mean and how to spell them. Write each word in a sentence and put it in your exercise book.
In grammar today we are learning about how to use parenthesis when writing a comic. Click below. Watch the videos and do the activities. If you want to extend yourself further do activity three as well.
The focus this week is Space.
Explore what is in our solar system, the famous ' Space Race ' and the thrilling, true survival space story - Apollo 13
When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.
Find out about the solar system by reading these two sources - making notes as you read about each planet :
Now enjoy the rap on YouTube about the Solar System ' Outer Space : We are the Planets, " The Solar System Song By StoryBots - Netflix Jr '
Based on what you have read and watched, create your own rap, song or poem about the Solar System.
You may create your rap, song or poem in different ways, such as
- Use the rap you listened to on YouTube as a starting point and edit some of the lyrics/ add to the existing lyrics to create your own version.
- Choose one part of the Solar System to create your rap / song or poem about e.g your favourite planet.
- Choose your favourite type of poem such as a limerick, haiku or acrostic and use this to write about the Solar System.
Make sure you keep practising your rap, song or poem by reading it aloud and editing as you write.
Once you have finished , have a go at performing it to someone in your house. If possible, you could also record it to send to me.
If you are feeling really creative, why not make a music video to support your performance too!
