Term 4, Week 2: Setting

Learning Intention: 

  • Describe a setting.
  • Write sentences that start with a capital letter, have finger spaces between words, and end with a full stop.

Using the picture above or a place that you have drawn, write at least 3 sentences describing the setting in your Writing Journals. Remember to use lots of adjectives, and try to sound out the words on your own. Here are some examples:

  • There were lots of cars in the busy city. It was very noisy and smelly.
  • The sun was shining brightly at the beach. It was a beautiful day.
  • Look at the deep, dark forest. It is cold and scary.

Please wait until we have covered this lesson in our Webex sessions before completing the task. Also, don’t forget to send your teacher a photo of your work by Friday!

Modelled Writing

Maths: Ordinal Numbers

Learning Intention: To correctly identify the position of an object using ordinal numbers.

Verbs: Part Three

Verbs are action words. They tell us what a noun (person, animal or thing) is doing.

  • The boy is playing in the mud.
  • The dog is rolling in the mud.
  • The toy is covered in mud.

Activity 1:

Identify the verb in each sentence. In your Writing Journal, see if you can write your own sentence using the same verb. Don’t forget to sound out the words on your own!

Activity 2:

Take a video of yourself doing any of the following actions:

  • Hop on one leg
  • Dance to your favourite song
  • Bounce a ball
  • Climb in the playground
  • Swing across the monkey bars
  • Waddle like a duck

Can you think of other more creative verbs?

Please remember to send the videos to your teacher by Thursday.

Survival of Living Things

So you now know that living things grow, reproduce and breathe. But what do they need to survive?

You might like to make a mobile to help you remember what animals need.

Or you could choose an animal and learn about what it eats, where it lives, and where it gets water from. You could write about your animal, or draw the animal in its home.
