Handwriting and Grammar – Monday 30th March

To consistently use capital letters and full stops.

To use commas appropriately in a list to break up adjectives or nouns.


All of our spellings this week contain the letter ‘a’, however each ‘a’ letter sounds closer to an /o/ sound than an /a/ sound. For example, we pronounce ‘watch’ as w-o-tch and not w-a-tch. For handwriting today, we would like you to focus on ‘want’ and ‘watch’.

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 /t/ letter in both words stretches high above the other letters, as well as the /h/ in ‘watch’. /w/, /a/ and /c/ in ‘watch’ and /w/, /a/ and /n/ in ‘want’ should all be the exact same height. Try and draw a line across these letters. Is it a straight line? Are they all level?

Activity 1- Use a dictionary or google to find the meaning of the words ‘want’ and ‘watch’.

Can you tell us the difference between ‘want’ and ‘watch’ in the comments below?

Activity 2- Using cursive script practise writing ‘want’ and ‘watch’.

Activity 3– Put these words into sentences – try to use a comma to extend your sentences (to break up two or more adjectives or nouns).

For example: I want to visit the exciting, exotic and playful animals at Chester Zoo.

Challenge – Use commas to join together your key words for Spring (English lesson).
