Writing

Writing Challenge

We thought we would set you a little writing challenge. When you have completed this why not put it in an envelope and put it in a memory box. Then when you are an adult, you can share this writing with your children or even your grandchildren to tell them what life was like during the Corona pandemic.

 

Make sure you write today's long date, including the year and your name (you never know when you read this in years to come you may have changed your name).  

 

Write a sentence or two to answer these questions:

 

Who?

Who have you been with this week? Who have you seen?

 

What?

What have you been doing this week? What have you played with? Have you baked? Have you played in the garden? Did you put a Rainbow in your window? What have you been eating?

 

Where?

Where have you been all week?

 

Why?

Why has life changed?

 

When?

When did all this start?

 

Useful words:

Corona          virus                   staying at home family  

 

Remember:

Full stops

Capital letters

Finger spaces  

 

Example

Friday 27th March 2020

Jennifer Lowe

 

This week I have been at home with my Daddy, Granny and my brother Joe. I haven't seen any of my friends. We have been reading, building lego, playing in the garden and doing our maths work on the computer. We can only go out once a day and we must stay away from other people. This is because of the corona virus, if we stay at home the virus won’t spread as quickly. We finished school on Friday 20th March and have been at home ever since.  

 

You could draw a picture at the bottom.

 

Extension: Why not phone, facetime or zoom a relative and interview them with the same questions then write their answers into sentences.

 

 

You could tweet your writing to @SpringfieldSPS so we can read it too.

Good Luck! 

 

Spellings

We have now set "List 1" for the children to play on for this week- this is on Spelling Shed; we will set a new list each week (from the Year 1 spelling lists). Children can still carry on playing on the games anyway and we can see who is playing and how they are doing. We also have a leader-board of all classes from school. Enjoy playing.

 

Red Words

Please use this powerpoint to practice the RWInc red words. Play games with them and keep reading and writing them at home. Children can play pairs, snap or Pyramid write the words- see example below, then write in a sentence.

Pyramid Write:

could

c

co

cou

coul

could

I could not believe how beautiful the weather is.

At Springfield we care, learn and achieve together
