WALT: Punctuate speech

We have been learning all about the three little pigs story. In the story there is lots of repetitive speech. Today we will be learning how to use speech marks in our writing. These are also called 'inverted commas.' When we talk about them and try writing them we might describe them as a 66 and 99 in the air. This reminds the children how to write them and which way round they go.


When we use speech marks, there are important rules to remember.


For example:


"Little pig, little pig, let me come in," said the wolf. 

"No, no, not by the hairs of my chinny chinny chin, I will not let you in!" replied the first little pig.


Challenge: Try to use different synonyms for said

replied, asked, shouted, growled, yelled, snarled

This week we are learning about the properties of 3D shapes. Remember 3D means three dimensional. That means that they have length, width and depth. 3D shapes have faces, edges and vertices.


Today we will learn about faces. Faces are flat or curved surfaces on a shape. For example a cube has 6 faces.
