Wednesday 13th January 2021
Reception - Learning Objective - To compare stories and find similarities.
Today we're going to look at another story - The Runaway Chapati, by Susan Price.  A chapati is a type of flat bread from India.  This story reminds me of The Gingerbread Man.  Click here to listen to the story.  There is also a powerpoint version in resources where you'll be able to see the pictures more clearly.  When you've finished listening to the story, think about how is the story the same, and how is it different to the story of The Gingerbread Man.  Explain your thoughts to your grown ups.  You could draw the similarities and differences or maybe explain them in a video and upload them to your portfolio on Class Dojo for us to see.
 
Year 1 - Learning Objective - To understand what a sentence is.
Today we're going to look at what a sentence is.  A sentence is a group of words which go together, they are a complete thought.  Sentences need to make sense.  Sentences always start with a capital letter (check the handwriting sheet in your pack on how to form your capital letters).  Sentences finish with some punctuation - a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation mark.  Sentences also need spaces in between words.  Click here to watch a video all about sentences.  At the end of the video there is a task for you to finish the sentence starters; write these in your books.  When you've finish that look at the resource below - Sentence writing prompts, choose 3 pictures and write sentences about them - don't forget, they need to make sense, start with a capital letter, have spaces between words and end with some punctuation.  Upload your writing to your portfolio on Class Dojo.
