Here is your work for Friday  3rd April 2020.

Session 2

English Learning:


Test yourseld on your homophones today - see which you can now spell and which you can't - remember the spelling will change depending on how the word is used in a sentence.

All homophones for KS2 - spelling list


What: inference from the text.

Continuing from yesterday, there is another inference based reading sheet for you to try. Read the short text and answer the inference questions - remember, this means to think about what has been implied by the author - it might not have been explicitly written, you are giving your opinion using evidence from the text. 


e.g. - "the house had cobwebs in the corners and the walls had large, hollow cracks between the bricks."

The house could be old and it does not seem to be lived in, if there are cobwebs inside, no one is looking after the house and keeping it clean. The cracks imply that the house is older as it is starting to fall apart. 

Inference worksheet (2)


What: character description with different sentence starters. 

Use the PowerPoint below for today's lesson. The link to the video is above.
