Home Learning 15-02-13

Well done. You collected some great advert examples for your home learning task last week and we’ve been using them in class this week to develop our understanding of persuasive texts.

The holiday home learning task has two parts. The first is all about shape and the idea of symmetry.  I want you investigate which letters have lines of symmetry? Look at the letter A next to the text. Can you see the line of symmetry down the middle? But which other letters in the alphabet have lines of symmetry? If you are confused about symmetry, have a watch of the video linked here.

The second task is to have a go producing a poster advertising a place you visit during the holiday. Think about a snappy slogan and using bright bold lettering. Use adverts around your house to help inspire you.

100 WC Sienna

Hi my name is Sienna and I am being evacuated .I’ve just said goodbye to my mum. I wish dad was here but he’s fighting in the war. I hope he wont die. I really do hope he wont die . I’ve said goodbye to my pets as well. I wish you could come or the war ended and I came back home.
I look out of the train window as I’m writing. What is that? The fields look as big as football pitches and are as yellow as the sand with the corn as golden as the sun. The hedgerows look like spider webs hanging from the leaves. all my love Sienna
