Literacy

Here are suggested activities linked to your weekly overview for Week 6 (11.05.20). This week, we’d like you to spend some time revising common areas of Literacy which we have already looked at in P5. There are some videos of a PPT linked to each lesson which will hopefully help to explain what the lesson is and a few games to play. Then you have a worksheet to complete linked to your Literacy reading group. Please make sure you choose the correct activity. You do not need to do all the worksheets for all the groups...just your reading group. If you need any help or further explanations...please email your teacher. We are only too happy to help. Also keep sending us your wonderful work!  laugh

Literacy Lesson 1 - Parts of Speech 

 

One of the areas we would have been revising this week would be parts of speech. We have spent a lot of time during P5 learning all of our parts of speech. We can recognise nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs in sentences. This means we can build imaginative and complicated sentences to use in our writing. PRONOUN is a new part of speech, so make sure you've read all about pronouns on this poster. Have a watch at the video below which explains a little more about these parts of speech.

Study and learn English Grammar with this simple, animated introduction to Parts of Speech. The video uses kinetic typography and some memorable characters. ...

We would like you to spend some time practising this element of Literacy this week and have given you lots of different activities which you can choose from. You do not have to do them all, but perhaps choose one you like the look of. You also have some parts of speech worksheets in your ‘Fun Literacy Activities’ Booklet also. There are a few Kahoots your can play to help you practice. The codes are 05175454, 06197027 and 03445340.

 

Don’t forget to let us know how you got on or maybe you came up with your own activity? We’d love to hear from you!

 

Practise your parts of speech knowledge using the PPT below.

A fun activity you can do is to build your own sentences making sure you have nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs in them. Remember we did this in class and colour coded all the words and made the other words black.

If you’d like some more practice, why don’t you play the following games to practise identifying parts of speech in sentences.

Literacy Lesson 2 - Punctuation

The second thing we’d like you to practise this week is your punctuating of sentences. Throughout P5 we have looked at full stops, capital letters, question marks, exclamation marks and using commas for both lists and clauses (we know this one was tricky). Have a look at the two videos below which recap the different punctuation marks we’ve looked at.

Now we’d like you to spend some time practising this element of Literacy this week. Choose the worksheet for your group and give punctuating sentences a go. You also have some punctuation worksheets in your ‘Fun Literacy Activities’ Booklet also. Don’t forget to check out Studyladder for some ‘Punctuation PODS’ as well. There’s lots to keep you revising this week.  laugh

Literacy Lesson 3 - Comprehension 

As your third lesson this week, we’d like you to practise some comprehension work. Log in to Studyladder and try out some comprehensions your teacher has set for you. You will also find some comprehension work in your ‘Comprehension and Writing Activties’ booklet in your home learning pack. If you’d like a further challenge you can have a go at the comprehension uploaded below called 'The Mighty Slide'. Don’t forget that reading is comprehension also…maybe you just want to read a chapter of the book you are reading and get someone at home to make you up some questions if they have time. Remember to think about your strategies that help during comprehension and if you’re answering, use FULL sentences.

Literacy Lesson 4 – Revise Alphabetical Order

 

It is very important that you can order words into alphabetical order. We have spent a long time practising this in P5 and thinking about going to the 3rd/4th letters. Use the following links to help you practice alphabetical order and then have a look at trying the worksheet based on The Royal Wedding. There are a range of difficulties, so choose the one you think suits you best. You can also try the following Kahoots 05682822 and 0174002.
