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:

accident, address, busy, consider, difficult, disappear, eighth, earth, extreme, enough

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

 

Task One: continue to practice spelling your words using tasks such as – Pyramid words, Rainbow words, you could clip letters out of newspapers or magazines to spell your words, etc.

Task Two: you have 10 spelling words this week, write 10 sentences using your spelling words correctly. Try to write more complex sentences. You could even challenge yourself to use a fronted adverbial.

 

Art:

During lockdown, we have been taking a bit of time to get out of the house for a walk around our community. We might even just go into our front/back yard for some well needed fresh air.

During this time, take a bag with you and collect as many different things as you can (from your front/back yard or on your daily walk). You could collect anything from rocks to leaves to sticks. The more you collect the better!

Using everything that you have found, create a work of art! What you want to create is up to you! Try to be as creative as possible.

Here are some ideas for you to get you started:

  • Create a self-portrait of yourself or even one of your family members.
  • Create a landscape such as some rolling hills or a beach scene.
  • Create a flower using the objects you found (not just the flowers you collected).
  • You could even just arrange the objects to it all fits together in an awesome college.

Remember to send us photos of your amazing Found Object Art Work!
