Year 1 need to continue with this phonic workbook . Please aim to do one page each day.
Reading Comprehension
Year 2 have got a reading comprehension booklet this week. There are three texts, one story, one poem and a factual text. The children can choose to do all texts at the same time, but they should have a five minute break between each one. Alternatively, they can do the texts at three different times.
Year 1 have a comprehension about the zoo vet.
Monday - Today's writing is linked with History. Please see the attached document below. 
Tuesday - Please watch the power point on commas below and then complete the worksheet challenges.
Wednesday - Further practice using commas in lists.
Thursday - Commas are used in poetry too, usually at the end of each line. Read the poem on the attached document about things you would find in a wizard's pocket. Next make up your own list poem. You can decide where it is set; you might choose 10 things found in my bedroom or 10 things found in a clown's pocket, 10 things found on a teacher's desk or 10 things found in a farmer’s pocket..... It is up to you. Brainstorm your ideas first and then write your poem. Choose interesting objects, use adjectives, alliteration and similes. Remember to start each new idea on a new line and to end each line with a comma, until you write your last line where you will end with a full stop. 

Friday - Comprehension
