To consistently use capital letters and full stops.
To use rhyming words and alliteration in my Fantasy creature 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 ‘water’ as w-or-t-er and not w-ar-t-er and ‘squash’ as s-q-o-sh not s-q-u-a-sh. For handwriting today, we would like you to focus on ‘water and ‘squash’.
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 ‘water’ and /h/ in ‘squash’ stretches high above the other letters. The /q/ in ‘squash’ is nice and long below the line. The /w/, /a/, /e/ and /r/ in ‘water’ and /s/, /u/, /a/, /s/ in ‘squash’ 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 ‘water and ‘squash’.?
Activity 2- Using cursive script practise writing ‘water and ‘squash’.
Activity 3– Put these words into sentences – try to use rhyming in your sentence – and a comma if needed!
The water flowed beautifully around.
It fell with a crash onto the ground.
Challenge – Use rhyming words, alliteration (and a comma if needed) in your Fantasy creature poem (English lesson).
