Making up sentences with your spellings in - With a grown-up and make up sentences with your spellings in. You or the grown up need to write these down. You can have more than one of your spellings in the same sentence, but every spelling needs to be covered. Keep these safe for the next activity.

Quizzing - On Friday, grown up will read out your spellings and you write them down onto a piece of paper. Check your spellings with your grown up. How many did you get right or which words to do you need to practice more?


Monday morning Education 4 Safety (E4S) - Discuss these questions with an adult. Can we go on a school trip to China? We would learn lots but would this be sensible? How else could we find out about going to school in China? What could I use to help me? How could I use the Internet to find out? What is a search engine? How do I use a search engine? What do I need to do to stay safe when I'm using a search engine? 

Now, with an adult use a search engine to find out some facts about what it might be like to go to a primary school in China. 

Afterwards, watch these videos and use them to answer the sheet on the attachments below.

Literacy Tuesday - Commas for lists. Watch these videos. English StarsBrain and Rap. Now look at the attachment below.  

Literacy Wednesday - Watch the story of The Magic Paintbrush. Today you are going to make your own Magic Paintbrush. Measure and cut out 10 pieces string that are 4cm long. These will be the bristles of your paintbrush. Fold up a piece of card or paper and fold it in long narrow strips (to make the handle). Glue the folds together along with part of the string. The string should stick out of the end of your paintbrush. Write your name on your paintbrush. Now, think about what powers your paintbrush will have? Can it paint food so no one is ever hungry? Could it sing to help babies get to sleep? Can it tell jokes to make people feel happy? Use the vocabulary planner to write down words and phrases. You will use this to help you write about your Magic Paintbrush tomorrow.

Literacy Thursday - Today you'll be writing about your Magic Paintbrush. Remember to use your vocabulary planner from yesterday to help you. Here's an example of someone writing about the powers of a magic paintbrush to give you some ideas:

God’s Paintbrush

God’s colourful paintbrush has endless powers! His paintbrush is more powerful than a ferocious bear. It can paint any colour from yellow as bright as the sun to black as dark as midnight. God’s paintbrush paints gracefully, delicately and thoughtfully. His paintbrush is busier than a buzzing bumblebee because it is always dashing quickly around the world to paint something new! I think the powers of God’s paintbrush makes us look in amazement, excitement and astonishment at the beauty in the world. Where can you see this beauty? It’s painted everywhere… Have you seen the twinkly, sparkly and shiny stars glowing like lightbulbs up high in the sky? Look at the turquoise, blue and frothy waves crashing delicately onto the sand at the beach. You can see it in how God painted your helpful Mum’s smile or in the kindness of your Dad’s wonderful hugs. You can even see it in Neymar Junior’s cleverly and quickly scored goals or in the bright colours on the TV screen when you play your Xbox! Listen and you can hear the quietness in the rain when plops slowly into puddles. God’s paintbrush is powerful. I wonder what he’ll paint next…

Could you turn this into a game show at home?
