Spelling: Today we will continue with our work on homophones.  Today we are learning about to, too and two.  Take a look at the poster and PowerPoint and then complete the activity. 

Activity: Write our each sentence and put the correct to/too/two in to complete them.

Challenge: write your own sentences using the different versions of to. Can you use all three in one sentence? 

English - Day 3

Learning Focus - To find key information in the text.

Today we will be reading chapter 4 and 5 of the book.  Remember when you are reading/listening to the text to find out the meaning of any words you do not know as they will help you to understand the full meaning of the story.

Read: Chapter 4 only to begin with.

Respond: Answer these questions below:

1) What did Dick Whittington want to be? Pg32

2) Who helps him to learn to read and write? Pg33

3) Why does he need to learn to read and write? Pg33

4) Who arrives at the house? Pg34

5) How does the squire know he 'isn't very grand at all'? Pg35

6) How does the squire feel when he has been pushed in the mud? Explain how you know. Pg36


Reflect: Read/listen to chapter 5.  Think about how he is feeling about the events of this chapter.

Write a short diary entry as though you are Dick Whittington. It should recount some of the key events, how he is feeling and what he might do next.  You could simply write this into your work book, or you could make/draw a scroll or even tea stain a piece of paper to make it look really old (do this before you write on it otherwise it will ruin your work!).

REMEMBER when you write: capital letters (start of sentences and names), clear sentences, using conjunctions, description and detail to make the writing interesting.
