To consistently use capital letters and full stops.
To use a range of conjunctions in your writing.
Conjunctions are words that join sentences together for example and, because, but, so, if, when.
Handwriting with Homophones
Your spellings this week are homophones and for handwriting today, we would like you to focus on ‘quite’ and ‘quiet’. Homophones are words that sound the same, yet have different spellings.
Remember, in handwriting lessons it is much more important to take your time than it is to write the same word lots and lots of times.
Look at the example below. It is important that the /q/ letter in both words comes below the line. /u/, /i/ and /e/ in ‘quite’ and /u/, /i/ and /e/ in ‘quiet’ should all be the exact same height. Try and draw a line across the letters. Is it a straight line? Are they all level?
