The teaching video below will support you through the prediction comprehension questions from your worksheet (below) about images taken from a clip, Lighthouse. Work through the first four questions before watching the whole clip.
Questions 5 and 6 requires you to watch the whole clip. It is available to watch on the video but unfortunately, the quality is poor and I strongly recommend that you watch it by clicking this link:
Now you are ready to answer questions 5 and 6.
Phonics Group 4 and 5
Have a go at reading the texts. Some of the questions may be tricky. That is absolutely fine, just leave the questions you are struggling with and complete the ones you find easier. I have included the answers if you would like to check that you have completed the questions correctly. Only look at these when you have tried your very best first.
1. Go back to Wednesday's work to remind yourself about the details of the volcanic eruption (you can watch the video again if you want to!)
2. Watch today's video
3. Look through the newspaper on the link and think about the techniques they have used in their headlines
4. Come up with some headlines of your own!
5. Write your opening paragraph, thinking about the what, where, who, why and when.
Thursday 21st January - Reading Comprehension
For reading comprehension this week, you will be reading information all about penguins and then answering a range of questions.
Open the pdf labelled with your phonics group and read the text.
For phonics groups 1, 2 and 3, have a go at reading the text yourself but if you are finding it tricky, there is a video where you can read through with me. You must try yourselves first though please.
Then answer the questions. If you can print the table off then that is great but if not, just read through the table and think about where you would tick.
Answer the rest of the questions in your book please.
Enjoy learning all about penguins!
This week and next, we are going to be exploring and writing newspaper reports.
First News is a brilliant newspaper that is designed for children. It's the one we have access to in school and we will be using their online resources to research the different features and support with our own writing.
To be able to use speech punctuation accurately.
This lesson will be revision to remind us all how to set out speech in our writing so that we can include quotes from sources in our newspaper reports. The resources are set out in order.
