Literacy

Your child's weekly book is on Active Learn website under the Big Club section.

I have given your child some grammar games to play on Purple Mash.

There is a comprehension below. It is differentiated so there are three different versions. Choose a version that you think is appropriate for your child.

 

The children would normally focus on Greek Myths at this point in school, so I would like you to show your children the story of Hercules and the 12 Labours https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnjSBPV9z74. Last week they watched  'Thesis and the Minotaur 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQuAUBX5xBw, so I would like the children to compare and contrast the two heroes. Make a list of all their similarities and differences. Once they have come up with this list I would like them to think of all the things a hero needs as I would like them to come up with their own. Remember that they are not superheroes with capes etc. I would like the children to come up with a name for their hero, describe their apperance , describe why they are special and describe their personality. Once they have done they should draw a picture of their hero. 

As before with the hero, I would like your child to do the same but for a monster.
