Reading - your child should read to an adult for ten minutes each day. Ask your child questions about their book. 

 

Monday 18th May

Spellings These activities should take about 45 minutes - In the small, brown spelling book, put the date on the top line. 

 

You should read the spellings aloud to your child and they try to spell them (Cold test). Mark these - this gives a starting point for the week. 

 

Next discuss the meaning of the words with your child. Look up definitions in a dictionary or online and try to use them in a sentence.

 

Your child should practise their words in their handwriting book - see picture below. All letters start on the line. Write a line of each of this week's spellings.

 

After handwriting for ten minutes, fold your child's spelling book so that they cannot see their cold test and read the list again. (Warm test) Mark and check for improvements. Check for tricky words - these will need extra work over the week.

 

Work on your child's spellings each day and then we have a 'hot' test on Friday.

 

This week's words: 

the suffix –ible

Horrible

Terrible

Visible

Grammar

Today we are learning about relative clauses. A relative clause comes after the noun to which they

 add more information. They usually start with a relative pronoun (e.g. which, who,

whose, when, where).

 

e.g. Jaguars live in the rainforest, where it is hot and humid.
