Spelling:

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

Interact, interfere, intercity, international, intermediate, internet, intergalactic, interrupt, intervene, interlude.

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

 

Task One – complete the handwriting task that is attached below (it is important that we are still working on our handwriting and using joined writing in our work).

Spelling Handwriting Practice

NB: if you can’t print the work out then complete your handwriting practice in a book of your choice.

Task Two – use your spelling words in sentences (there are 10 words so you will need to write 10 sentences).

 

PSHE:

We are going to learn more about different viewpoints. This learning may focus on physical viewpoints in terms of what you can see outside of the window at home, what others can see looking into your home and then progress onto personal viewpoints and of others.

Choose ONE or TWO of the tasks below to complete:

Tasks:

  • Draw a picture of yourself and label your drawing with the qualities you have.
    • How do others see you differently? Ask people at home to add to your qualities.
    • How are you different to other children in different parts of the world?
    • What makes you like other children around the world?

 

  • Complete an observational drawing of what you see outside a window in your house. Then get out into the garden (if you can) and find natural forms such as stones, leaves, flowers and animals. Complete sketches, showing an awareness of different viewpoints of the same object. Remember to concentrate on tone and shading.

 

  • Design your own ideal world.
    • Would your world contain the same things as other people?
    • Which things are most important to you?
    • What are you going to include?

 

  • Move around your home and garden taking photographs from different viewpoints.
    • Which photos do you like?
    • Do the people you live with like the same photos as you? Why? Why not?
