Thursday 23rd April

Literacy =

Re-read Chapter 2 and the starting page of Chapter 3 of 'The Train To Impossible Places' using the PDF of the first few chapters of the book below. Get a family member to read it to you if needed. 


Your task today is to plan the next chapter for the story:

- Use a method for planning that you are familiar with and works for you (Story map, story mountain, story board etc.) We usually use 'chunk the plot' where we write notes for what's going to happen in each section of our Chapter in a table. 

-Think about the following:

What do you think has happened to Suzy?

What will Suzy see when she wakes?

Will Fletch be there?

Where do you think the train is going? Is it to an imaginary place? (Think about the title of the book).

2. Complete an activity on read theory each day or a comprehension from your reading pack.

3. If you have IDL, log on and complete a lesson.

Spellings =

1. Get somebody at home to test you on the 5 spellings from your list that you practiced on Tuesday.

2. Learn any that you got incorrect.

We are going to start a new topic 'The Vikings'. Our theme this year has been 'invaders and settlers'.  The vikings invaded Britain after the Anglo Saxons.  Remember that England was made up of different Anglo Saxon kingdoms at that time.  Look at the powerpoints that  I have attached.  Use the  time line cards (most of you could use the one with 2 stars on it.... the 3 stars is a bit more of a challenge and if you need something simpler use 1 star). Fill in any missing information and put them in order that events happened. Write the events in order in your homework book.
