For Week 6 home learning in English we have combined video clips and written work but please remember that it is not always necessary to print off the work if you don't have the facilities to at home. Read the questions from a screen and discuss them with your child or ask your child to write out the questions on to paper. This would benefit their handwriting skills as well
Monday's Video Clip Enjoy the animated reading of This is the House that Jack Built by Simms Tabac. Pause at 4.40. Who do you think the mystery guest is going to be? Finish the story and find out!
Tuesday's Video Clip Re - watch This is the House that Jack Built by Simms Taback. What food is the Rat so fond of? Cheese! What words are used to describe the cheeses that Rat eats? (Stinky, smelly, yummy, gooey.)
Wednesday's Video ClipRewatch the video clip of The House that Jack Built. Now read the text version of The House That Jack Built to your child. What differences do you both notice between the two versions? Which one did you prefer? Why was that?
