2. English

This week in English we will be continuing to learn about instructions and practising retelling our talking text ‘How to Catch a Gopher.’ Our main focus will be writing our own set of instructions for catching a chosen mythical creature.

Lesson 1: Today you will be adding to the instructions you began last week. (You will have done this either on lined paper or the printed sheet.)  Today’s focus will be on the ‘Steps to take’ and ‘Top tip!’ sections of your instructions. Remember you can always follow the sentences in our ‘How To Catch a Gopher.’ talking story to help you with this. Just change certain parts to fit your mythical creature.  

 

Lesson 2: Today’s learning will focus on editing and improving our writing. Remember, our writing is not always perfect first time, and there are always things we can improve. Get the instructions you wrote yesterday and use the Instruction Writing Checklist to check you have included all the features of good instruction writing. Add anything you have missed or correct any mistakes using a different coloured pen. If you have a purple pen use that, just like in school.

 

Lesson 3: Today you will be writing your final instructions up in best on English Activity Sheet 3.

 

Lesson 4: Log on to letter joins and practise your handwriting formation daily. Make sure your letters are the same size and that ascenders are tall and descenders hang below the line.  https://www.letterjoin.co.uk/
