Saturn - Literacy (Summer Week 5 18.05.2020)

Friday 22nd May 2020

I have found an online game that will test your adjective knowledge. A sentence will appear and you have to click on all the words that you think are adjectives. When you have found them all, a new sentence will appear that maybe slightly harder. 
Remember an adjective word is a describing word.

 

I would like you today to again use a picture as your stimulation for activities. Today’s picture is of a baby seal pup. There are 5 different activities that you can choose from to complete. Please choose 3 of them. You may have to continue a story, you may be asked to draw a picture, you may have to use your imagination and inference and prediction skills, you may want to make some boring sentences even better. Have fun with it.

What is your favourite chocolate bar 🍫? Is it plain, milk or white? Does it have caramel? Crunch? Raisins? Popping candy? What if you could design your very own chocolate bar 🍫? What would you include? What would you name it, so that it stays in people’s minds? What catchy slogan would you give it? To start to today, I want you to draw your chocolate bar and the wrapper that it would come in, give it a name, give it a catchy slogan and turn it into a diagram telling me what it has inside it. If you want to push yourself, think of alliterations, adjectives, adverbs, WoW words. Make my mouth water.

Today, I would like you to write me a letter telling me about what you have been up to during our time apart? What have you enjoyed? What have you missed? Who are you dying to see again? How have you been feeling? These are just a few ideas πŸ’‘ that I have quickly come up with off the top of my head, I bet there are loads that you can think of. I have placed how to write a letter PowerPoint at the bottom of this, if you want an address to send it to, use the school address. Why not even post it through the school letterbox on a daily walk and I will be able to read them for myself.

Missing you all.

I’ve got a word challenge for you today. It is called word ladders. Here is a picture to show you what it looks like.

The idea πŸ’‘  of the game is you start with a word at the top of your ladder, for the next word down, you change 1 letter so you create a new word and so on until you cannot think of any other alternatives. So if you look at the picture they started with cat 🐈, for the next word down, they changed the c to an m to make m etc.

I would like your word ladder to start with the word: line.

 

Today’s main focus is to look at conjunctions, these are the words that can extend your sentences by adding an extra word into the middle of 2 shorter sentences, for example: and, because, if, so etc.

Mrs Kellett went to the shop. She needed bread.

Using a conjunction it would be connected and become

Mrs Kellett went to the shop because she needed bread.

I hope that makes sense.

I’m in school 🏫 today and it is always nice to see familiar faces. I am missing you all.

To get us started today, we are going to play a guessing game. On small pieces of paper πŸ“ write the names of famous people or cartoon/film characters you may know. Mix them all up and pick one, hold it above your head without looking at it. By asking your partner questions, can you guess who you are? You can only ask questions that would have a yes or no answer. Swap over. Have fun.

 

For the main activity today, you are going to learn about the difference between formal and informal language. This will help you to think about how you speak to people and also write to them if you need to write a letter.

I’m sat here with Esmae on my knee, trying to show me all her princess πŸ‘Έ dolls that she owns, I could be here a while because she has quite a few lol πŸ˜‚.

I have found a version of a noughts and crosses games that you can have a go at playing but you will need a partner to play with.

 

Divide into 2 groups (X and O). On a piece of paperπŸ“  make the noughts and crosses grid. In each space you can write a verb (a doing word). One person who is a X will choose one of the verbs and say its past tense. If it is correct X is placed in that square. Now it is O's turn and so on.

Remembering that they are trying to make three X's or O's in a row for noughts and crosses and win.

 

Do you know what the difference between a fact and an opinion is? Could you spot them in sentences? Well today you are going to look at what they are. Watch and listen carefully to the videos. How well can you do?
