Handwriting & Spelling

Spellings for this week are based on word families:













Watch the powerpoint above and then begin to learn your spellings. You will have another chance to practise your spellings on Wednesday and you will need to ask an adult to test you on Friday. Good luck

Tuesday 2nd February

Click on the link below and complete the first section (take care with the 'f' join, remember an f has an ascender).


Watch each animation in turn and then carefully copy the letter join 10 times. When you have done this, repeat with the next letter join  - watch the animation and copy 10 times. Continue until you have completed all the top e letter joins.  Write down 4 words which contain each of the letter joins.


Next, choose one word from each section and write a sentence for each.. Try and think of interesting sentences which begin in a different way and contain a range of punctuation. Try and make interesting vocabulary choices to engage, and ensure your handwriting is well presented

Wednesday 3rd February

Have another go at practising your spellings. You could use the strategy look, cover, write, check to practise them by yourself. See if you can find your spelling words in the wordsearch below or try out the crossword.

Thursday 4th February

Watch the video of Joseph Coelho reading his poem Beautifully Different, Wonderfully the Same. The poem celebrates diversity and highlights that whilst we are all diiferent, we are also all the same. Please open the document after watching the video, and copy the poem in your neatest handwriting.


You may also want to have a try at performing the poem yourself - please ask a parent to video your performance and I will upload it to the school website.

Friday 5th February

Spelling test day. Please ask a parent to test you on your spellings today - it would be great to hear how well you got on!
