This week we are looking at adjectives. We are beginning to understand that they are describing words. To start with, we look at adjectives that describe size, shape, colour, feel, etc.,
First, watch this video on YouTube of the storybook Funny Bones
This week we are learning that 'doing' words are called verbs. This Powerpoint explains this:
Learn about London Landmarks and buildings on the topics tab. Then have a go at writing sentences about 4 landmarks of your choosing. Remember to start your sentences with capital letters, end them with full-stops, use finger-spaces between words and also use your phonics to spell unknow words.
We have begun to explore the new handwriting paper that we use in Year 1. Your child is learning that there are 4 different lines on the paper: top broken, top solid, bottom solid and bottom broken. They are beginning to learn that some letters are small, some are tall and some have tails. We are looking at where on the lines each size letter sits.
Our next lesson is to learn about the straight line family.
Your task is to print out the paper and then practise the straight line family - all letters should start from the top.
