Why not make English active in this glorious Spring weather?
Roll and Rhyme
Resources needed: A ball and other people
To play this game, pass a ball by rolling, throwing, kicking or bouncing it to someone. The first person says a word i.e. bat. All other players then have to say a word that rhymes with the first word as the ball reaches them. For example cat, mat, chat etc.
Think of your spellings lists or the imaginative words we have been using in our writing which you could rhyme to make the game more challenging!
See if you can act out the different components to a sentence.
For example, jumping for a space, a tall, straight shape for a capital letter, a curled, tucked shape for a full stop.
To recap our Year 5 sentence work:
Be as imaginative as you can!
It is really important that you continue reading all types of fiction and non-fiction text. One of the best ways to relax is to take yourself to another world in a really good book! We will be updating with this page with recommendations in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, have a go at these reading comprehension activities. Finished quickly and hungry for more? Why not make up your own questions about a book you are reading.
