Let's start with a celebration dance for the end of the week.

antibiotic, antidote, antihistamine, antihero

Can you write out each spelling 3 times and ask someone at home to give you a test on your spellings?


Look at the new text for today and read it aloud to an adult, aloud to yourself and then quietly in your head before you start answering the questions.


Today we are continuing to look at expanded noun phrases again. Watch the clip.

Can you now choose some different nouns to yesterday and add at least 2 adjectives to describe the noun? use the nouns: school, park, Mrs Heather, Mr Hazelby, leaf, hill.


Listen to the last part of chapter 1.

Do you notice any noun phrases as you are listening or following the text?

Today we are going to continue with writing our descriptions about a character Bilbo Baggins or Gandalf.

The dwarf, Bilbo Baggins who was about half the size of a human had brown hair but no beard. He was a shy, quiet man who did not venture out much, however he liked to have visitors to his underground house. Bilbo was a respectable, proud man because people thought of him highly and he liked to keep his comfortable home clean and tidy. His luxurious house ..... 


The tall wizard Gandalf, who was wearing a dark coat, had a long pointed, blue hat and held a bony staff stick as he walked down towards the hill. He wore a long, grey cloak .....

Let's have a little brain break as we move to super movers and remember our noun phrases.


Today is arithmetic day so either do your arithmetic test from here or on the TEAMS assignment.
