Throughout the lesson you will need to complete the following tasks:

  • A prior knowledge quiz

  • Write your own newspaper report using the prompts and examples in the slide show

All these tasks can be found by using the link above.

 

Reading:

Reread Chapter 2 of A Sheep Dip to India which is available to read on Purple Mash.

At the end of the chapter the monkeys are tormenting William. Will he be able to chase after the cheeky moneys and get his envelope back? What kind of problems might he encounter? Write the next part of the story using the 2do that is set on Purple Mash.

 

Remember to read your own book everyday (reading helps us develop fantastic language for our own writing!)

 

Spelling:

These are going to be your spelling words to learn this week:

Dangerous, hazardous, poisonous, riotous, mountainous, perilous, joyous, momentous, synonymous, scandalous

NB: On Friday, test your child on how they have done with learning to spell these words.

 

Task One – have one last go at practicing your words before you are tested. You could do this by doing Rainbow words or Pyramid words.

Task Two – assess your child on the spelling words for this week. For the spelling test you could read the word, then say the word in a sentence and finally repeat the word one last time.
