Happy Monday Kiddos!
I hope you had a lovely weekend and 4th of July to those of you who celebrated!!
I can't believe we are in our final 2 weeks of term! It has gone so quickly!
I am so looking forward to seeing what you get up to this week.
SPaG- Have a go at using co-ordinating conjunctions.
The three main coordinating conjunctions are:
However, there are seven coordinating conjunctions in total. You can use the word FANBOYS to help you remember them all:
For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So.
1. Design a post to help us remember all 7 coordinating conjunctions.
2. Write a sentence containing each conjunction.
On Wednesday mornings we go to Forest Schools! Use this as a great excuse to get outside yourself. Show me what you find, maybe it will inspire some writing or some art. Can you count how many bugs or trees or daisies you spot? Spend time running around the garden or going on a family walk. I can't wait to see what you get up to.
Write a list using bullet points.
They are used to identify different objects in a list, splitting up the information and making it easier to read.
I went to the park and I played on the swings, the slide, the monkey bars, the merry-go-round and the balance beam.
I went to the park and I played on the:
Make sure you include a short introduction sentence to tell us what the list is about.
Make sure you include a colon (:) at the end of the introductory sentence, before the list starts.
I want to write 3 lists using bullet points:
- what you have done today
-your favourite toys
-list of favourite foods
You don't need to write 'and' at the end of the list for the last item.
English- To use alliteration
Alliteration is when words close together in a sentence start with the same sound.
For example: Sammy the slippery snake went sliding by.
Alliteration is used in both written and spoken English.
You can find examples in poetry, advertising and events commentary. It is often used in newspaper headlines to grab the reader's attention.
Alliteration can be used to make funny tongue twisters, for example:
She sells sea-shells on the sea-shore.
The shells she sells are sea-shells, I’m sure.
For if she sells sea-shells on the sea-shore
Then I’m sure she sells sea-shore shells.
I would like you to have a go at writing your own tongue twister.
To begin you need to choose a letter (not a vowel; a, e, i, o, u) and write down as many words as you can that start with that letter.
For example 'B': bagel, bun, berry, Barry, bury, butter, bitter, brave, bin, bong, black, blue...
Then use the words in you list to write a tongue twister. Remember you can still use words that aren't in the list to make your sentence make sense. Make you tongue twister at least four lines long.
