Word of the Day!
To keep expanding our vocabulary over the next two weeks we will be introducing a new word each day. Using either a dictionary or a web search, can you find out what the word means if you don't already know the word. Then, can you write a sentence making sure you include the word of the day. Spicy and Hot - can you then re-read your sentence and identify the word class of each of the different words you have used, e.g.
Word of the day - knowledge
Definition - facts and information we learn through education or our experiences.
Sentence - I like to gain knowledge of the ocean when I am in school.
I - pronoun
knowledge - noun
ocean - noun
in - preposition
gain - verb
Your turn, write a sentence using our word of the day, knowledge.
We are starting a new unit of English today on The Borrowers! It is one of my most favourite books and TV series as a child, so I really hope that you enjoy it.
Just to clarify as you may get confused and rightly so, this is confusing! This unit is supposed to consist of 15 lessons, however I have shortened it to 10. The reason for this is that included in the 15 lessons there are 5 lessons that are grammar based which we already covered in our Jabberwocky learning. I have taken these out so we can concentrate on our narrative. Therefore, the lesson numbers on the Oak Academy website may be different to the lesson numbers on our webpage. If you follow the links for each day, you will get to the lesson you need. I so hope that makes sense, let me know if not!
This lesson introduces us to the text. When Ms Salter asks you to write what you think the book is about I want you to write this as a prediction as would in class when we start a new text. I predict that.....I think this because....
Mild - use the sentence stems that Ms Salter provides to start you off.
Spicy - can you use my sentence stems above and write a prediction telling me why you think this?
Hot - can you expand on the above and include two predictions justifying your answer. As always please don't give me a list, write your thoughts in a well structured paragraph of writing.
