Thursday

Thursday 9th July

English

Spelling/Grammar

Today we are learning about the prefix ‘un’. This prefix comes before a word to mean ‘not’.

Here is a list of words. Which of these words use the prefix ‘un’ to make a new word? Cross out the words that cannot make a new word with the un- prefix.

 

 

Now write each word with the prefix ‘un’ in a new sentence. E.g. This bed is incredibly uncomfortable because the mattress lumpy.

 

*CHALLENGE –Use a conjunction in every sentence (and or but if when that because so).

 

Reading/ Writing activity

Today is a reading challenge! The text we have been reading about rainbows is an explanation text. It gives us facts about a topic and explains the causes of things.

 

Most information texts have:

  • A title
  • An opening sentence that says what the text is about
  • A series of facts explaining why something happens
  • Pictures and/or diagrams
  •  

Read the rainbow explanation text again  and see if you can spot and circle each of the features listed above.

 

*EXTRA READING CHALLENGE If you have any information or explanation books at home, or you are able to use a computer you could look at one of these websites:

https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/category/discover/                                https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/  

 

Use your scanning skills (read over the text quickly to find something) and see if you can find each of the features in one book or on one webpage about something you are interested in.

 Write down what you have found using these sentence starters:

Other subjects (topic work/ foundation subjects)

Geography

Today we are going to continue to work on our mapping skills. We are going to design and map our own ‘Barefoot island’ using the symbols we created in our last geography session.

 

Step 1: Using a plain piece of paper, carefully draw around your foot (or use the template below)

Step 2: Think about what you would like/need on your island.

Step 3: Start making your map. Remember to include houses, roads and parks. Use the symbols you decided on last week and create a key, including the symbols and labels to help people read your map. Remember to include a compass too!

Step 4: Give your island a name – the more creative, the better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Notes – This is your island so you can include whatever you would like, it doesn’t just have to be what is around your house! Remember that there are some places you will need such as shops for food and houses to live in.
