Week 6 - 8th February

New spellings. Please practice these spellings this week. They will help your child when writing their alien story.



Phonics -  Today we will go through the spellings for this week (see above), talking about segmenting to spell and using drawings to help us remember tricky words. (We will be working through these on the Live Zoom).

Additional Activity: Have a go at practising your spellings at home. 


English - Today we will be thinking about writing our own alien story and gathering ideas on Zoom.


Task 1: Whilst on Zoom - try to jot down/bullet point/write some ideas or draw a picture for who could be in your story, where they live and what could happen to your alien.

See 1 Monday - Alien Story Ideas. pdf

Task 2: Complete or create your own S plan. Once, one day, unfortunately, luckily and finally. What could happen in your story. Try to include adjectives, verbs and adverbs in your plan!

Pupils practise handwriting the word too. Pupils orally create sentences using too.

Fill in sentences with missing words - two, to and too.

Task 2: Children to start writing the beginning part of their story. Stopping to check whether they have used their plans. Children must include adjectives and verbs.


Task 3: Children could create their own book/booklet so they can then be a real author and illustrate each "chunk" of writing e.g. Once upon a time......illustration. One misty, foggy day......illustration. Children will have 5 small paragraphs so could have 5 illustrations to match what is happening in the picture smiley
