Grammar and Writing

Monday 11th January 2021

Today we are going to be learning about near-homophones. Words that sound similar, but have different spellings and/or meanings. Use the video to help explain your learning along with the PowerPoint to follow what we are learning. Then, move onto the Activity Sheet - choose your level of difficulty (hard, harder, hardest) and see how many you can get correct!

This week in Writing, we will be writing a non-chronological report about a polar creature. Yesterday, you started to research a polar creature of your choice. Today you will be revising what a non-chronological report is using the PowerPoint and WAGOLL (What A Good One Looks Like) below and finishing your research. Then on Wednesday you will plan your non-chronological report and begin writing, on Thursday you will have time to finish your non-chronological report, thinking carefully about the headings and subheadings you are using and any drawings/diagrams you want to include and on Friday, you will have time to edit your work, self-assess and add any improvements to make it even better. 

Thursday 14th January 2021

Finish writing your non-chronological report about your chosen polar creature! Make sure to include lots of the features from the help sheet and lots of lovely drawings/colour.

Well done on writing your non-chronological reports Year 4! Today, you will have time to read back through your work, share with someone at home and spend time editing your work (in a different colour e.g. purple pen like we do in school!). How many of the different features have you included? Have you carefully thought about the presentation of your work? Is it neat and clearly written? Does it include a main title and subheadings to divide the information up?
