Home learning – Tuesday 2nd February
Choose 6 words from the Year 5/6 statutory word list. You could choose 6 words that you have never heard of before or 6 that you know you find difficult to spell (see list attached below). If you can, get someone to test you on your spelling of your chosen words and then work together to come up with ways to help you to spell these words accurately. If you have time, choose other words and practise spelling them by using pyramid words, writing them in rainbow colours or tracing around the words to familiarise yourself with the shape of the letters.
Read chapter 8 of Journey to the river sea and answer the comprehension questions.
