Spellings and Handwriting

Spellings for this week:












Watch the powerpoint 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 12th January

Click on the link below, scoll down until you come to the Continuous Cursive Letter - top e letter joins section. 


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 13th January

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.

Thursday 14th January

Below, you will find a document call Caged Bird by Maya Angelou. This is a poem which we will be using later in the half term. For your handwriting today, I would like you to copy out the poem taking care with the top letter e joins that you focused on during Tuesday's handwriting lesson. Write slowly and carefully and ensure your writing is well presented.

Friday 15th January

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!
