To consistently use capital letters and full stops.
To use onomatopoeia in my Spring poem (examples: bang, pop, splash, mumble, pow, cuckoo, glug, hoot, hum).
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 ‘war’ as w-or and not w-ar. For handwriting today, we would like you to focus on ‘war’ and ‘towards’.
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/ and /d/ letters in ‘towards’ stretch high above the other letters. /o/, /w/, /a/, /r/ and /s/ in ‘towards’ and all of the letters in ‘war’ 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 ‘towards’ and ‘war’.
Can you tell us the difference between ‘towards’ and ‘war’ in the comments below?
Activity 2- Using cursive script practise writing ‘towards’ and ‘war’.
Activity 3– Put these words into sentences – try to use onomatopoeia in your sentence (onomatopoeia means when a word describes and mimics the sound it refers to).
For example: I walked towards the sausages and could hear them sizzling and popping in the pan.
Challenge – Edit your Spring poem from yesterday – can you include any onomatopoeia?
