Spellings to learn
Monday and Tuesday - Please see Purple Mash for an email from Mrs Smithson regarding your task.
Wednesday - To use extended sentences to describe a setting
Today we will be starting a new unit of English based on the film clip ‘Marshmallows’. The English resources for the next two weeks are saved all together as they come in one pack. We will only be using certain resource sheets for tasks and not all of them, so there is no need to print them all out. Each day it states which sheet you will need to print/look at for that day.

Task - Use description (like we did in the video clip) to extend the sentences on sheet ‘Resource 1a’.
Extension - Write some of your own sentences to describe the film’s setting.
Thursday - To create a setting as an opening for a narrative
Today you are going to create an opening setting description by adding elements of the forest that we did not see in the film clip yesterday.
