Wednesday week 10 - Abandoned places part 2

Image
Good afternoon.

The video below demonstrates how we turn our planning from our abandoned places into our writing.  Please watch this video with your child before class tomorrow so that they know what will be expected tomorrow.  I do not expect your child to be writing tonight, just watching and discussing the video before tomorrow.


The only other homework I have set for tonight is reading, so please ensure your child is reading aloud tonight.

Thanks

Mr McSevich.

Week 10 Homework

Image
With this week being so short I am not setting mental maths or spelling homework.  Students will still need to read nightly for at least 10 minutes.  It is a great idea to have your child explain three main points from the page they just read, or be able to answer questions you ask them from the page they have read.

Tomorrow in class (Tuesday) we will be working on describing setting in our narratives.  To assist and ensure that we are prepared for the lesson, please assist your child watch the video below and select an image from the attached Abandoned places gallery. Please ask your child to come to school tomorrow with the name of the abandoned place they have chosen.  It would also assist your child if you are talking about the things in the pictures you can see, hear, feel and touch.
