Swans Week 9

Week 9 - English
 
Creative Writing - writing this week is a Twisted Fairy Tale. You will explore adventurous vocabulary then write a fairy tale with a twist - a not so happily ever after story!
 
Reading - Exploring the Deep is our reading book, continuing from last week. Click on the link and answer the questions below. You will read specific pages and answer the accompanying questions.
 
Grammar - recognising devices to build cohesion (fiction).
 
Spellings - Year 5/6 spellings are below. You should practise spellings by writing them out and then using them in creative sentences. Use the following website to help with the learning and pronunciation of words: www.spellzone.com
 
Handwriting - Below is a cursive fluency and speed handwriting pack for you to complete over the next few weeks. Please refer carefully to the handwriting style used and look at the Benwick cursive alphabet model. I have attached a file with handwriting paper which can be printed off at home. Alternatively, we can provide you with handwriting books/paper packs. These can be collected from the school office.

Maths 
 
On Wednesday, the children will be moving on to 'Properties of Shape'. They will need a protractor for many of the tasks as they will be measuring angles and constructing shapes.
 
If you need a protractor, please let me know as I will arrange for one to be left in an envelope in the collection box outside of the school gate. A message was added to Class Dojo on Thursday 4th June explaining this. 
 
Any protractors borrowed, will be expected to be returned to school before the end of the academic year.
