Please remember to login to Spelling Shed and practise your spellings! There is also an activity below to complete with this week's list:
Complete research about why trees are so important. You might like to start with one of these websites (but if you find any other good ones, that's great!):
Make some notes about why trees are important, then use these to create a "Plant a Tree" poster encouraging people to plant trees and telling them why they should. We would love to see these - please email them in to us!
Write a letter addressed to a seed that will one day become a tree. For example - acorn, conker, apple pip, fir cone. Decide on your tone of voice - you could tease and joke with the seed like a friend, you could be encouraging like a parent or you could be respectful and ask for its secrets.
Think about the future of the tree - a cone might become a Christmas tree; the conker a great horse chestnut tree for children to gather conkers for games.
Remember to tell the seed about its wonderful future.
We'd love to see the letters you come up with - you could type them on the computer and email them to us or write them and take a picture to send in.
Practise your use of inverted commas (speech marks) and write a short poem where trees can speak. Remember your speech punctuation! (bacon sandwiches!!!)
Here is an example:
The apple tree says, "I bet you can't wait to bake me in a pie."
The horse chestnut says, "Who's ready for a game of conkers?"
This example is ok, but we think you can come up with something much better! You might like to think about other trees like a holly tree, a Christmas tree, a palm tree, a walnut tree, an oak tree or a lemon tree.
We have another reading comprehension for you today about Aesop's Fables. This can be found in your home pack, but if you can't find it, there's a picture below. If you can't read it, please let us know and we can organise a photocopy for you to collect from the office.
