Early Bird Morning Spellings

Select your colour and complete your sheet today.

Can you use them in a sentence?


Today is QUIZ day so at some point why not ask a grown up to read your spellings out and you see if you can spell them? 


WALT: Use adverbs

On Tuesday we learnt about using adverbs in our writing and we focused on words with the suffix 'ly' and today we are going to learn more about this spelling rule.



Suffixes are added at the end of a word to change their meaning. 


  • Adding the suffix -ly, turns an adjective into an adverb 'nice' becomes 'nicely'
  • If the word ends with 'y', the 'y' becomes an 'i', and then add -ly 'happy' becomes 'happily'
  • If the word ends with 'le', drop the 'le' and add -ly 'terrible' becomes 'terribly'


Find out more using this powerpoint and the link below.

Your task is all about changing words by adding the correct suffix. There is also an easier option (too tricky) as well as a challenge too! We have included a fun wordsearch if you have time.

WALA: Patterns with 3D shapes

Last week we learnt all about shape patterns with 2D shapes. When a pattern is repeated, it is called a repeating pattern. This week we will look at patterns with 3D shapes. You need to identify where the pattern starts and begins and when it starts to repeat itself. Sometimes the patterns show the different shapes.


For example triangular prism, triangular prism, sphere and then the pattern is repeated again, triangular prism, triangular prism, sphere (see below).


Other times, the shape is the same but it might have been rotated like the cones have been below.

WALA: Our feelings and emotions


On Monday, we are very excited to be welcoming all of the children back to school. Some of the children will be very excited about returning to see their friends and will be happy to be back in school. Other children might be a little more apprehensive and nervous about returning to school.


Today we want you to think about some of the positives that have come out of the lockdown, no matter how small!


For example:


You may have learnt how to use zoom and use this to stay in contact with family and friends.


You may have learnt how to tie your shoe laces.


You may have worked really hard on your school work and can't wait to show us!


You may have learnt to ride a bike.


You may have enjoyed the chance to read a book or maybe even wrote your own stories!



We can't wait to hear all about it on Monday!
