Do your spelling test, then practice spellings for List 29.
: In this lesson you are practicing using apostrophes for possession. This has been taught before, so hopefully this will familiar to you. Look at the Route Plan. I would like you to make a list of all of the places that each coloured route stops off at.
The red route goes to Destiny's house, Miriam's house... etc.
Complete this for each of the 4 routes. Then add yourself to the map (decide where your house would be on the map) and write out another route that calls at your house.
The main objective is to use apostrophes for possession, but I would also like to see commas being used to separate items on a list, as well as the basics - capital letters (start of sentences and for names) and full stops.

Today we are learning about Evacuation in World War II.
Have a look at the powerpoint below that explains about what evacuation was and why it happened (you may need a grown up to read and discuss it with).
I would like you to imagine that you are an evacuee, and you are writing a letter home. What would you put in the letter? Use the information in the powerpoint and also think about how Lenny was feeling in the story to complete the sections of the plan (there are 2 pages in total). Next week you will be writing up your letter in full.
Today we are learning how to edit work. Editing means improving - and this could be through spotting and correcting mistakes, or it could be making a piece of writing better by re-wording sentences.
Warm up by looking through the Powerpoint below - can you spot the mistakes?
Now I would like you to read through the text in Activity 1. Use the checklist to make sure you are spotting all of the mistakes in the text. These could be spelling, punctuation, the wrong tense or perhaps the sentence doesn't make sense. Use the Word List to check spellings against. When you have thoroughly checked the text, re-write it properly.
Now complete Activity 2 and 3. If you are feeling confident, can you think of alternative words that could be used to make it sound more interesting?
