Reciprocal Reading

 

This week, we will be looking at a range of text types. Today’s text is a fiction extract from Alice in Wonderland.

 

Work through the Reading PowerPoint and complete today’s written task. The text is attached below.

 

Here is the order we usually follow in class for Reciprocal Reading:

  • Predict (sensible guess)
  • Read the pages
  • Clarify the meaning of words you didn’t know
  • Answer the questions
  • Summarise

Grammar

 

Green - Today in Grammar, you are learning about direct and indirect speech.

 

Please click the link to watch a video about direct and indirect speech: https://www.theschoolrun.com/what-are-direct-and-indirect-speech

 

Direct speech is when we write the actual words that someone has spoken.

  • Speech marks go at the beginning and the end of the spoken words.
  • Punctuation at the end of the spoken words goes before the speech marks.
  • When a different person speaks we begin a new line.

For example: Miss Brown said, “Collect your things and get ready for home time.”

 

Indirect speech is when we write about what someone has said.

  • We don’t use the actual spoken words.
  • We don’t use speech marks.

For example: Miss Brown asked the children to get their things ready for home time.

 

Please watch the short clip below of me explaining today’s learning. I have also attached a copy of the questions to work through.

 

ROY - Today in Grammar, you are learning about verbs in different tenses. Verbs are doing words.

 

Present tense verbs mean the action is happening now or in the present e.g. She jumps in the puddle. OR She is jumping in the puddle.

 

Past tense verbs mean the action has already happened in the past e.g. She jumped in the puddle. OR She was jumping in the puddle.

 

Future tense means the action is going to happen in the future. When the verb comes after I (one person), we use shall and after he/she/you/it/they/we, we use will. e.g. I shall jump in the puddle. OR We will jump in the puddle.

 

Please watch the short clip below of me explaining today’s learning. I have also attached a copy of the questions to work through.

 

B2 - Today in Grammar, you are going to be learning how to use an apostrophe for a contraction.

 

Contractions are words that get smaller. We replace letters with an apostrophe so 2 words become 1.

 

For example: He is... > Hes

 

Please watch the short clip below of me explaining today’s learning. I have also attached a copy of the questions to work through.

 

B1 - Today in Grammar, you are going to be learning to punctuate sentences and ensure they make sense.

 

Sentences have a capital letter at the start, a full stop at the end and they make sense. Remember, names of people, places, months and days also need a capital letter.

 

Please watch the short clip below of me explaining today’s learning. I have also attached a copy of the questions to work through.

Green - Today, you are going to continue with recapping equivalent fractions.

 

Here is the link to a video that will teach you everything you need to know for this lesson, just as I would teach you in class: https://vimeo.com/504316253

 

After you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.

 

Attached is a true or false for you to answer. Work through it and explain your answers. This is just a discussion to have with somebody else, you do not need to write anything down.

 

ROY - Today, you are going to begin your new maths topic, ‘Fractions’. Today’s learning is all about making equal parts.

 

When parts are equal, it means they are exactly the same size.

 

Have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.

 

Blue - Today, you are going to be learning to compare numbers within 50.
