English

At the moment in English we would be revising our grammar and looking at instructional writing

Something to write about: 

 

1)Write a recipe for your favourite thing to bake. Remember to include what you will need, chronological instructions and some helpful hints.

2) Imagine you have hidden an Easter Egg somewhere in your house/garden. Draw a map with x marking the spot. Write a set of directions for your parents explaining how to find the ‘treasure.’ Watch Neil Gaiman’s instructions on you tube

3) Look out of your window. Draw what you can see and then use prepositional phrases like besides, infringement of, in the distance, to describe the view

4) Design an Easter card. Can you include an Easter poem inside? 

5)For grammar could you design a poster showing your understanding of the terms- adverb, pronoun, fronted adverbial and conjunction 


Non negotiable's - capital letters , full stops, question marks, finger spaces, conjunctions and fronted adverbials

 

Extra activity: Write a letter to an elderly family member who may be self isolating. I am sure they would love to hear how you are spending your time and what you are looking forward to. Remember your non negotiable's! Add time conjunctions and questions.
