Home Learning 1-3-2013

This week’s home learning task is to complete either the 100 Word or 5 Sentence Challenge. You can add your response to the blog as a comment, or you can write it in your book.

The 100 Word Challenge prompt for this week is quite a simple one. It is:

…the car stopped suddenly…

Make sure you keep to the 100 word limit and do go and visit at least 2 other pieces from different schools on the 100 Word blog.]

The 5 Sentence Challenge prompt is a picture. Try to write 5 interesting sentences about the image and see if you can vary the word you start the sentence with.

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.

This week’s home learning task is to use the description of the Artful Dodger below to draw a picture of the character. What does he look like? How would he stand? Use the text below, but also use other versions of Oliver Twist to help you.

Oliver looked up through the blur of his tearful eyes to see a strange sight. The Artful Dodger was about ten years old, small, filthy, with sharp little eyes and a snub nose. Her was dressed in a grown man’s clothes. A hat struggled to balance right on top of his head. He half smiled at Oliver, his hat wobbling.

Well done for some great shape work last week. This week I want you to have a go at writing a description of a room in your house.  Think about using adjectives (describing words) and even some adverbs (words to describe a doing word) to really paint a picture with words. Try to describe your room in as much detail as possible, but don’t write more than 100 words – introducing a setting shouldn’t be too long. Write them in your home learning book, or comment them on the blog. I’ll publish the best online!
