SPAG Task

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:

Famous, porous, nervous, adventurous, ridiculous, courageous, carnivorous, outrageous, herbivorous, advantageous

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).

 

Afternoon Learning Activities:

These tasks are a mix of History, Art, PE and PSHE. Choose at least TWO tasks to complete from the list below:

  1. Transport Inventors – Find out about famous transport inventors such as Henry Ford and The Wright Brothers. Create a fact file about these inventors.
    • Can you draw sketches of different modes of transport then and now?
    • Can you place different modes of transport on a timeline using their invention date?

 

  1. Colourful Collage – Create your own transport collage. Draw, colour or paint a variety of vehicles or make a large collage of one vehicle. Use bold colours to really make the vehicles stand out! The collage could be made using cut up squares from magazines and leaflets.

 

  1. Obstacle Course – Find any toy transport (cars, trains, etc) you might have at home, then you can design an obstacle course for the vehicle to travel around. This could be on a track or floor involving ramps inside or in the garden. Another idea – get each family member to make a paper aeroplane and throw each one in turn and see whose travels the furthest. Measure the lengths of the distance travelled and record these on a bar chart.

 

  1. Let’s Talk Transport -Talk as a family about transport in your life. Talk about how you get to school and work.
    • Do you get your food delivered?
    • Does anyone in the family operate a mode of transport?
    • Is it their job?
    • Discuss the first family car owned.

Mind map all of the ways your family relies on transport and then imagine a life without it.

 

  1. Transport Around the World – Look at how people travel around in India. Buses, cycle-rickshaws, autorickshaws, e-rickshaws, tempos (big, brutal-looking autorickshaws), taxis, boats, tongas (horse-drawn carts), metros and urban trains provide transport around India’s cities.

Compare this to Venice and how the people there travel around (gondola and and sandolo tours all around the city).

Design a new vehicle suitable for each of these places thinking carefully about suitable and local materials?
