Today in grammar we are learning about word classes. Firstly, refresh your memory by flicking through the power point. Your first task is to memorise the poem on page 11. This will help you to remember the word classes!

Task two, in your home learning books, is to match the words to the correct word class. Draw a table in your books and complete. If you would like to challenge yourself you can add your own words to the table too!

Your next task is to colour the shapes by word class. If you have a printer, print the page and colour using pens or crayons or if you do not, you can open the word document, copy the picture into paint and colour fill each of the sections accordingly. Choose the challenge you want which are labelled at the top with chillies. If you are a little unsure try the mild chilli challenge (the butterfly on the first page). If you are feeling very confident choose the extra hot chilli challenge. Once you have finished you can check your answers.

Learning Review: Look at the picture in the middle of the learning review, then go around the squares in sequence. Start at number one and go all the way to seven answering the questions!

Children will be writing poetry based on an imagined experience (being an astronaut entering space). Please watch the video link below to help with this. When children write their poem, they can choose which style of poetry they would like to use. It can be a rhyming couplets poem, an alternate line rhyme poem, a Haiku (we'd like 3 seperate ones if you choose this style) or a Kennings.  Please focus on including the thoughts, moods and feelings an astronaut might be feeling by choosing words and phrases carefully.  When you have finished writing your poem, read it aloud to your family and think about intonation, tone and volume.

Children will be given the following image of an Anglo Saxon helmet divided into four equal sections.  They will then be asked to replicate the image using four different mediums e.g the top left corner in pencil, the top right corner in handwriting pen, the bottom left in charcoal and the bottom right in oil pastels. If you don't have these resources at home, please feel free to use any other mediums you have readily available.  Thank you.
