Children should have a go at the main activity and will hopefully be able to manage it. If your child is finding it difficult or you think they need some more practise or ideas with rhyming, I have made a sheet to further support at home.

I hope you enjoyed our story yesterday called Oi frog! If you didn't get a chance to listen to it, scroll down the page to watch it. It is a story about rhyme.

 

Yesterday we gave you pictures and asked you to match the rhyming words together. Today you will be writing your own rhyming words. It may be a little bit tricky, but you have had a bit of preparation with the work we did yesterday. 

 

There are two activities. Do activity 1 first as a warm up and then activity 2.

Monday 8th February

 

Today we are learning about rhyme.

Listen to the story Oi Frog! and see if you can spot the rhyming words. Rhyming words have the same sound at the end of the word like cat and mat.

Your first activity is to match the rhyming words from the story. If you cannot print the document, say the matching words out loud to a grown up.

 

Your next activity is to write some rhyming words. I have given you the first word, I'd like you to write the rhyme that goes with it.

 

Friday 5th February

 

Well done to all of you fantastic writers! The stories you have sent us have been fun to read. We wish we were in school to do story writing but you have done so well at home. Today is a finishing up session. Some of you may need to go back to yesterday's lesson to have a look and finish up your writing.

 

If you have finished- let's do some editing! 

Read your story with a grown up at home and see if you have missed anything out. You may want to add in a little bit more. Check that you have used capital letters and full stops and that your handwriting is nice and tidy.

 

Then, draw some pictures to go with your story. Books often have an illustrator. That is someone who draws pictures to go with the book. Can you draw one, two or three pictures to go with your story?

 

Here are some from the original story as an example.

Well done everyone!! We are now going to finish our diary entries today. I hope yesterday went well and you wrote lots of information about your trip and your feelings. Hopefully you managed to put them in order too and may have even used some adjectives to make your writing really exciting.

 

Today we are going to be writing your signing off sentence and your finish message. Please watch the presentation and try and listen to every sound button, then have a go yourself at finishing your diary entry.

 

Please send them over to us when you have finished via our email address Willowhub@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

We are really looking forward to reading about your experiences to space!

Thursday 21st of January 2021

 

We hope you all wrote your first two event sentences yesterday and remembered to include how you felt about what you did too! How did you get up into space? Did you remember to use the word 'first' for your first event sentence? 

 

Today we are going to write our last two key events, so before you write on your final diary entry, have a go at writing down your ideas of what you may include for your last two sentences. 

 

For example what did you see in space when you looked out of the window? Stars, planets, meteors, shooting stars, another spacecraft, satellites?

 

And when you finally got to the moon, what did it look like? rocky, bumpy? Could you hear anything or was it silent? 

 

Please remember to include how you felt about these two events too. Maybe even try and use the connective word 'and'  to make your sentence longer. Please also try and use some adjectives to describe what you saw eg the twinkling stars. 

 

Don't forget to write in first person and in order of when the events happened.  Try and use time connective words too like next, after that or finally. 

 

 

 

Wednesday 20th January 2021

 

We hope you came up with some great hook sentences yesterday. Today we are going to start the key event sentences and remember to include how you felt too. 

 

Please watch the presentation first and listen to all the sound buttons and then continue with your diary entry. 

 

 

Please remember to try and fit your next two sentences on the same piece of paper. Don't forget to write in first person too and try to use words like first, then and next. 

 

If you need the activity sheet it is on Tuesday's lesson further down this page. 

 

Tuesday 19th of January 2021

 

I hope you all had a good go at identifying the structure of a diary entry using our shapes. 

 

Now today is we are going to start our very own diary entry, pretending to do Neil Armstrong. 

 

Please watch this presentation and then have a go at starting your diary entry remember only write the starting point, the greeting message and the hook sentence and then stop. 

 

 

 

Try to write small and neat so you can fit your whole weeks worth of your diary entry on to one sheet of paper. 

Monday 18th January 2021

 

Hi everyone, we hope you all had a lovely weekend. This week we are going to be looking at a diary entry and we are even going to write our very own by the end of the week.
