ADDITION answers

SPELLING

Read Write Inc. Books

This week's spellings all end in the suffix -able.

 

 

You can't really hear the a when we say the suffix -able. It sounds like ubble to rhyme with trouble.

 

We can add -able to some root words without making any changes to them.

understand        understandable

 

When a root word ends in e, we drop the e before adding -able.

ador   adorable

 

When a word ends in a consonant + y, we swap the y for an i before adding -able.

rely    reliable

 

Miserable is an unusual word. We just drop the y

miser  miserable.

 

Please complete the Spelling Zone and Dots and Dashes, on page 12 and 13, in your RWI book.

 

Next, write out your spellings in your best bubble writing. Look at the picture above. Experiment. Create some exciting lettering. Use colours. You will usually find your spellings for the week on the SPELLING STAR.


comfortable

enjoyable

miserable

suitable

predictable

reasonable

reliable

believable

 

SCIENCE

Today we are learning more about the synthetic material PAPER.

After you have watched the video lesson, we hope that you will be able to make some paper. REMEMBER you must ask a grown-up before you start making your paper so that they are aware of what you are doing. They can help to keep you safe.

LITERACY

Poetry

Kennings

A Kenning is a way of describing something using clues rather than saying what it is.

Each line in a Kenning poem has only two words. These words are joined using a hyphen.

The two words are either a noun and a verb or two nouns.

Heat-giver

Light-maker

 

Click on the document below. Read through the Kenning poems. Can you guess what each poem is about before you get to the end?

 

Writing a Kenning

 

If I was writing a kenning about a baby, this is how I would start. 

I would write a list about what the baby does, how she moves, what she eats and anything else that reminds me of a baby.

 

 I'd think of a noun  (person, place, thing) connected with babies.

My noun is 'nappy'.

 

I would link the noun with a verb (doing word) and add 'er' on the end. This turns it into an 'er' noun.

 

My verb is wet. I add 'er' to turn it into an 'er' noun ' wetter'.

 

I would put the two words together.

Nappy-wetter

This is what my planning would look like.

 

I would like you to plan a Kenning entitled ' Who Am I?' 

The poem should be about yourself. Are you a  goal scorer or a cake baker? Are you a bike rider or sister teaser? Are you a hedgehog protector or a tree climber?  List things that you do or that you like. What are your hobbies? What is special about you?  What are you good at?

List your ideas and then brainstorm your two word expressions.

Have fun!
