Saturn Literacy - Summer Week 2 (27.04.2020)

Friday 1st May 2020

Righty ho, I have a found an online adverb game for you to play. It is a matching game. You have to match up the words that have the same meaning, which means you call them synonyms. Follow the instructions carefully. Good luck.

We are going to look at a reading skill today that is called ‘inferring’. This is important when reading so that we can try to get a good sense of what is happening in the story by using the clues that the author gives us. What is inference I Hear you ask. 
Look through the PowerPoint to help you learn about these skills and then use the picture and the questions i have included to help you start using this skill. There is an activity that you can download if you choose to. I have included the link for this.

To get you brained thinking about words, I have found a creative writing activity that you can have a go out. Try to ‘think outside of the box’ if you can and let your imagination take you off to distance lands, maybe real, maybe fantasy the choice is yours. Remember to include all of those fantastic types of words we have been working on recently.

Yesterday you looked at apostrophes for contraction, today we ares till looking at apostrophes but for a different reason, the reason is to show possession, to show that something belongs to someone eg: Kate’s teddy. Watch the clips on the BBC website and have a go, please do not feel you have to complete all the activities as there are quite a few, just complete what you can.

I have a game that you can get all the family involved in, or you need at least 1 other person to play along with you. It is Using some of the learning that you have done in our SPaG lessons to do with verbs. Can you remember what type of words verbs are? Yes, you got it, they are action/doing words.

Time for the next SPaG instalment. We are looking at apostrophes today, this is lie a revision lesson as we have studied these earlier on the year, but it always helps to rebook at things to embed them further into our memory banks. Today it is apostrophes for contraction, which means in every day terms, when we combine 2 words into 1, for example: do not would become don’t, we will would become we’ll. Remember the apostrophe replaces the letters that are missing.

I have found a fabulous picture that I am hoping will inspire and stimulate your ideas. We have been in taking a lot of SPaG lessons recently and I am wanting you to use what you have learnt to describe the picture. Think about the verbs (doing words), adverbs (tells me more about the actions) and adjectives (describing words) you can use. Think about using your senses to give an all round picture of what is happening. 

You are going to be thinking about ‘sentences’ today. What is actually needed in order to create a sentence? What is the difference between a sentence, a question and an exclamation? Can you learn the difference and then identify them?

We are going to carry on with our SPaG work today. Now I’m hoping, fingers crossed, that you will recall this with ease, as it is something that I continually talk about to you. This type of word can make your work more detailed and can add interest for the reader. This type of word is best friends with verbs, that right we are looking at adverbs today.

To get you warmed up let’s introduce a game that we play in the classroom, to those at home. Before we start on separate pieces of paper, write down 1 adverb on each piece of paper eg: slowly, angrily, mysteriously, shyly, happily, gracefully, bravely etc, I’m sure that you will come up with lots of your own ideas. Fold them up and place in a bowl or container of some sort, pick one out and don’t tell anyone what it is, enter the room in that style, can the guesser tell what adverb you are trying to act out? You could try swapping roles.


For the main part of the lesson, you can go to the BBC daily lessons and watch the video clips and take part in the interactive tasks they have, if you want extra practice you can print off the sheets. Or in your 📚, you can create your own sentences that includes an adverb to describe the verb(action word).
