learning at home.
This term our learning journey will be inspired by the painting

Be a key word superstar.
Revise the keywords from last term.
Firstly can you read them all?
Next can you spell them all?
I, to, the, no, go, he, she, we, me,
be, was, my, you, they, her, said, so,
have, like, some, come, were, there, little,
one, all, are, do, when, out, what.
Come and take a look at Class 6. We can't wait to welcome you into our wonderful classroom!
We want your child to develop a love of reading.
It will make a huge difference to your child's progress if they read at home and practise their keywords every day.
Learning for week beginning 4.1.21
This week we are focusing on a famous person called Quentin Blake. Have you ever heard of him? Take a look at the PDF below to find out more about this person and to see why he is famous. There is also an audio file below to listen to whist scrolling through the PDF. After looking at the PDF, there are some videos below about Quentin Blake, what an author is and about a young girl who is starting her career as an illustrator.
1. Continue daily reading practice of our tricky words: I, to, the, no, go, he, she, we, me, be, was, my, you, they, her, said, so, have, like, some, come, were, there, little, one, all, are, do , when, out and what. Scroll down to the Home Learning for week beginning 14.12.20 as there are some tricky word songs and games to join in with if you haven't seen them already. Why not make your own tricky words flash cards? Or see how many of your tricky words you can spot within one of your favourite stories at home.
2. Take a look at the picture below at some of Quentin's books. Which one would you want to buy from the shop and why? Have a go at writing some words or a sentence to explain your thinking, e.g If you decide on Up with Birds you might write "like birds" or "I would buy Up with Birds because the birds and balloons look funny." Don't worry if there are words you aren't sure how to spell just have a go.
3. Take a look at the front cover and blurb (the bit of writing on the back of the book to explain a little bit about what the story is about). Make a prediction of what you think will happen in the story,
4. What would you ask Quentin Blake if you had chance to talk to him? Make a list of some of your questions. Don't forget that a question ends with a question mark instead of a full stop. E.g What is your favourite drawing? Do you wish you had ever done a different job?
5. Our special person this week, Quentin, starts with "qu" sound, Make a list of al the words you know that begin with this sound you could draw pictures to match your words,
