a Pathway to Success

Tuesday, 9th June

Hi Everybody,

Here are your activities for today …


Daily recap of ‘phonics flashcards speed trial’ and ‘tricky word trucks’ on the Phonics Play website.

We have now covered all of the different spelling rules for adding the -er suffix. Today, you have a list of different adjectives, you must decide which rule you need to follow and then spell the word correctly.



We are continuing our work on suffixes.  This is a letter or groups of letters that you add on to the end of a word.


Today you will be learning some of the rules of changing a noun from singular (one) to plural (more than one).


You can go on to phonics play and play the simple game of Planetary Plurals  and  you also have a sheet to complete - look out for the tricky one!



Warm-up =

To warm up your brains today I would like you to start off by playing teacher and marking some maths sums. If they are wrong, don’t forget to tell me what the correct answer is.


Main Activity

Go through the shape riddle PowerPoint. Read the 4 clues and see if you can guess the shape that is being described. Remember to go through the PowerPoint as a slideshow, otherwise it will give away all of the answers before you have chance to guess.

Now have a go at writing 2 of your own shape riddles, one for a 2D shape and one for a 3D shape. See if someone in your family can solve your riddle or post your riddle on your dojo portfolio to see if your teacher can solve it.

Today is our final day focussing on 3D shapes and I would like you to do some more reasoning work. Remember when we do these types of questions it is important that you are able to explain your answers clearly. For example, in a true or false question you must say whether it is true or false AND explain why you have come to that decision. I have attached another PowerPoint for you to run through to become familiar with the type of questions you will be answering. Then, you have 2 reasoning worksheets to complete (try to do these independently).
