To use a range in poetry features in your writing (alliteration, rhyming words, commas and onomatopoeia)
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 ‘quantity’ as q-u-o-n-t-i-t-y and we pronounce ‘usual’ as use-u-a-l and not u-s-u-a-l. For handwriting today, we would like you to focus on ‘quantity and ‘usual’.
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 letter /t/ in ‘quantity’ and /l/ in ‘usual’ stretches high above the other letters. The letter /q/ in ‘quantity’ stretches below the line. The letters /u/, /a/, /n/ and /i/ in ‘quantity’ and letters /u/, /s/, /u/ and /a/ in ‘usual’ should all be the exact same height. Try and draw a line across these letters. Is it a straight line? Are they all level?
