Today we would like you to re-cap the story of the Giant of Jum so that you are more familair with this story. For todays activity we would like you to re-call the main points of the story in the correct order. You can write this as a list in your exercise books that we sent home or type this up and ask your mum, dad or carer to email it to me on the email provided in the letter for working from home.
I will show you an example linking this to our English text The Gian Jam Sandwich.
First all of the wasps arrived during summer.
Next the villagers were angry so they held a town meeting.
After the Baker thought it would be a great idea to make a Giant Jam Sandwich because wasps like strawberry jam.
Then they all worked together to knead the dough and coook the bread in the mill.
We look forward to reading all of the re-caps of the story!!
Today we would like you to look at the features of an informal letter - one you might write to a friend - and a formal letter - one you would write to an important person, company, etc.
First we would like you to play "spot the difference". What can you see in one letter that you cant see in the other? How is it laid out? Is the wording different? etc
Next can you list these in your exercise book that we have provided you or type them up and ask your mum, dad or carer to email them to me.
Finally we would like you to write to the Mayor of Itchen from the Giant Jam Sandwich - would you write a formal or informal letter? if you decided formal well done!!
Tell him what you would do if Andover all of a sudden had lots of wasps and that you think your idea is better than his, explain why you think your idea is better. You can be as imaginative as you like. Maybe there is a machine you would invent or maybe you can think of an even better trick to trap the wasps?
Remember you capital letters, full stops, use your phonics and include a magical "and" in there to join 2 simple sentences - only one per sentence remember - the image below will help them to remember how to use a conjunction correctly .
You will find your activity linked to reading the time on the clock for quarter past on the purple mash website.
You can use the log in that we sent home for you towards the beginning of the year and if you go to the "to do" section you will see the fun tasks we have set up for you!! We will keep adding to these as we go each week.
Keep trying to read the time as often as you can trying to catch the o'clock, half past and quarter past times!!
