Over the next few weeks we will be recapping some work we have done in class. Please following this link to the White Rose Hub website. Each day includes work, answers and a video for you to watch to explain what you need to do.
For today's work, I would like you to start at week 2, Lesson 1 on recognising a third. Watch the video and complete the work. Check you answers when you are done.
This week we are going to be writing our own version of 'A Squash and a Squeeze'. Recap the story in the PowerPoint below.
Below is my version, if you get stuck for ideas use it to help you. Remember you can change as much or as little of the story as you like, if you're not sure just start with changing the animals. Don’t worry about making it rhyme! Write up to the first animal coming into the house. If you’re not sure when that is, check my version.
A little old man lived all by himself with a table a chair and a vase on a shelf. A wise young lady heard her grumble and grouse “There’s not enough room in my house. Wise young lady won’t you help me please? My house is a squash and a squeeze!”
“Take in your monkey,” said the wise young lady.
“Take in my monkey? What a curious plan!”
Well the monkey all the bananas and screamed so loud the little old man could hardly hear himself think! The little old man cried “What shall I do! I was small for one now it’s tiny for 2!” Then he said, “Wise young lady won’t you help me please? My house is a squash and a squeeze!”
For this piece of writing, here is the success criteria:
Full sentences (capital letters and full stops)
Coordinating conjunctions (and, but, so, or)
Noun phrases (adjective then describing word e.g. wise old man)
Adverbs (ending in -ly e.g. hardly)
Subordinate conjunctions (if, that, because, when)
Question marks to end questions
