Let's start by reading some more of our class reader, Holes'. It is Chapter Nine, when Stanley finally gets a nickname!
Task: Finish and edit your Guides to CGL. This is the final day we will be working on them.
Proof read your own work:
- Read your work backwards – this helps to identify any spelling errors more easily, as each word is read in isolation.
- Correct own spelling errors independently (use spell checkers, dictionaries, on the computer).
Edit your work:
- Read through your work – does it make sense?
- Have you used varied punctuation?
- Have you included interesting word choices?
Spelling lists for Group One and Two for Monday 18th January - Friday 29th January 2021 can be found on the class page under Spelling.

Still life is often used by artists to practise different techniques and to develop control.
