Writing

Your writing activity this week is to write a story about an Australian creature on an adventure! Keith the koala is lost in the Australian outback and it will be your creature’s job to find him and return him to safety.

Your task for each day can be seen below.

Monday

  1. Have a look at the pictures below and pick your favourite animal to be your main character.
  2. Draw a picture of your animal in your learning book.
  3. What adjectives could you use to describe them? (e.g. long tale, scaly spikes)
  4. Start thinking about how your character could rescue Keith the koala.

 

Tuesday

Have a look at the pictures of Australia below.

  1. Look at the pictures. What can you see? Where do you think your main character might live?
  2. Draw your picture. Use pencils, paints or anything you might have at home.
  3. What adjectives can you think of to describe your setting?

Wednesday

Have a look at the story mountain planning sheet. Make your own story mountain plan by drawing it in your learning book.

Box 1: Who is your character? Where are they?

Box 2: What is the problem? (Keith is missing)

Box 3: What does your character do next?

Box 4: Who do they meet to help them?

Box 5: How do they find and rescue Keith?

Box 6: How does your story end?

Thursday and Friday

Now it’s time to use your plan to write your story. Remember to:

  • Use your success criteria
  • Use the verbs at the bottom of our page (last week’s learning)
  • Use your plan
  • Read your writing back again
  • Decorate your story with pictures after you have finished

EXT: can you write a sentence with ‘but’ or ‘and’?

Reading

Remember to read for 10/15 minutes every day. After you have read your book, can you answer these questions?

  • What happened first in the story?
  • What happened next?
  • What happened finally?
  • What do you predict would happen next?
  • How did the characters in the story feel?
  • How did the story make you feel?
  • Out of 5 stars, how many stars would you give this book? Why?

 

Phonics

Every day, practise your phonics by writing down 5 words you know that have that sound in.  Then, write a sentence for each sound using one of the words you have thought of!

You can do this with two sounds every day.

Here are your sounds for the week!

Monday – th (thing) and ph (phone)

Tuesday – oa (boat) and ow (row)

Wednesday – qu (queen) and oe (toe)

Thursday – ai (rain) and ay (stay)

Friday – sh (shop) and ie (pie)

 

And don’t forget to join in with our phonics flashcard video every day!

Extra Phonics Activities:

Use these sounds to make your own alien words.

Science

In Science, we have been learning about animals. Animals can be sorted into groups by the way they eat. These groups are called herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. Take a look at this picture to find out more.

Watch these videos and see if you can work out which animal is a carnivore, an omnivore and a herbivore.

Write some sentences in your book to tell us your answers!

For example: Elephants are _____________ and they eat ________________ .

 

Team Work

How can you help your grown-ups this week?

Maybe you can ask them if you can help with changing your bed sheets and getting them in the washing machine. Then, you can put some clean sheets on your bed. This might be tricky, but give it a go!

Here is a video for you to join in with. Can you teach your grown ups Kookaburra? Make sure you include the actions!

Keith’s Corner!

This is where you will find the joke of the week! Keith wanted to keep in touch with you all and make you laugh. I wonder if you can come up with any good jokes? You can share them on the blog!
