READING

Reading WC 13.7.20 

 

This week your reading comprehension task links to the work we have been doing in science. There is an information sheet for you to read carefully that tells you all about an experiment by scientists to make flowers glow. Once you have read it carefully we want you to have a go at answering the questions underneath. 

The answers can be found below the questions but no peaking before you’ve had a go! 

Reading WC 6.7.20 

 

This week we are going to be looking at a group of poems called ‘The Tree of Life’.  

You need to read the poems carefully and out loud if possible (poetry is meant for sharing!) and then we want you to consider any vocabulary that you are unsure of. Can you write those words down and then find out their meaning? 

 

Once you have a good grasp of the poem itself then you can have a go at the comprehension questions.

 

There are also 2 vocabulary activities that you could try and a spelling and grammar one too! 

 

Answers are at the end of the activity sheet for you to check when you have finished but remember, no peeking at them first!

This week we are continuing to look at reading comprehensions that are based on poetry. The poem we have selected this week is called ‘I shall protect the forests’ by Lenore Hetrick.   

You need to read the poem carefully and out loud if possible (poetry is meant for sharing!) and then we want you to consider any vocabulary that you are unsure of. Can you write those words down and then find out their meaning?  

Once you have a good grasp of the poem itself then you can have a go at the comprehension questions that are on the second page after the poem.

This week we are continuing to look at reading comprehensions that are based on poetry. The poem we have selected this week is called ‘My Shadow’ by Robert Louis Stevenson.  

 

You need to read the poem carefully and out loud if possible (poetry is meant for sharing!) and then we want you to consider any vocabulary that you are unsure of. Can you write those words down and then find out their meaning? 

 

Once you have a good grasp of the poem itself then you can have a go at the comprehension questions. There are 3 levels for you to choose from and the answers are below each set of questions – no peeking before you’ve had a go though! 

Reading WC 15.06.20 

 

This week we have a different type of reading comprehension for you as we start to look at poetry. The poem we have selected this week is called ‘The Tyger’ by William Blake.  

You need to read the poem carefully and out loud if possible (poetry is meant for sharing!) and then we want you to consider any vocabulary that you are unsure of. Can you write those words down and then find out their meaning? 

 

Once you have a good grasp of the poem itself then you can have a go at the comprehension questions. There are 3 levels for you to choose from and the answers are below each set of questions – no peeking before you’ve had a go though!

Reading - WC 8.6.20 

 

We have two reading challenges for you this week. 

The first is an interesting myth for you, all about bees and flies and how they came to be. With some retrieval comprehension questions for you to answer afterwards. 

 

The second challenge is all about persuasive writing. 

Watch the video to remind you what is meant by ‘persuasive vocabulary’ then select a level of challenge sheet, depending how confident you feel.  

This will give you lots of ideas that you can use in your writing task this week. 

Challenge 1 - The Story of the Bees and the Flies

Identify Persuasive Texts Video

Reading - Week Commencing 1.6.20

 

This week, our reading and writing tasks go hand in hand. We would like you to conduct some research all about bees. Can you look online (or in books, if you have suitable texts available at home) and find out as much as you possibly can about bees? Head over to the writing 'star' to find out how we'd like you to present this information.

 

To start you off, here is a short text all about bees and some comprehension questions for you to answer about the text. You can print these off or read online and answer the questions, in full sentences, in your homework book.
