Thursday 14th May

Spellings: Yesterday you read a poem and filled in the missing words using your weekly spellings. Today, can you create your own rhyming poem using old, cold, told, gold and hold?

Suffix spellings:  Monty has drawn around one of his weekly spelling words to create a shape word. Can you make shape words for the rest of the weekly suffix spellings? mouthful, closeness, sadly, engagement and lifeless.

Now you understand shape words, have a go at Monty's challenge. Look carefully at the shape words and then match the shape word to your suffix spellings. I'll put the answers at the bottom of the page. 

English: How is your story? I'm looking forward to reading them all once you have finished. I can't wait to see how you have changed parts of the story and which steps you have kept the same. Hopefully you are writing some interesting sentences and maybe including a range of punctuation, adverbs, imperative verbs, prepositions or alliterations. 

Remember to give your story a title e.g. How to Wash a Smelly Monty.

You might want to look back at your work from last week to use for the different hairstyles when writing step seven.  Step Seven: Now for the really woolly bit. You're going to need some shampoo - not too much! 

Maths: To warm up your brains, play 'Hit the Button - Number bond game.' Select the appropriate level of challenge.

Today's activity: Can you solve this domino investigation?
