To consistently use capital letters and full stops.
To use alliteration in my Spring poem.
All of our spellings this week contain the letter ‘a’, however each ‘a’ letter sounds closer to an /o/ or /or/ sound than an /a/ sound. For example, we pronounce ‘wander’ as w-o-n-d-er and we pronounce warm as w-or-m and not w-ar-m. For handwriting today, we would like you to focus on ‘wander’ and ‘warm’.
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 /d/ letter in ‘wander stretches high above the other letters. /w/, /a/, /n/, /e/ and /r/ in ‘wander’ and all of the letters in ‘warm’ 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 ‘wander’ and ‘warm’.
Can you tell us the difference between ‘wander’ and ‘warm’ in the comments below?
Activity 2- Using cursive script practise writing ‘wander’ and ‘warm’.
Activity 3– Put these words into sentences – try to use alliteration in your sentence – and a comma if needed! (Alliteration means when two or more words begin with the same sound).
For example: I wander wistfully around the big, blue tulips in the garden.
Challenge – Use alliteration (and a comma if needed) in your Spring poem (English lesson).
