Then if you can see ‘Activity 1’ and ‘Activity 2’ underneath the video box have a go at these too. Remember that a command can end in an exclamation mark too. It’s like a bossy sentence! 


Year 1's - This is a good introduction to recognising the different punctuation we see at the end of our sentences. 


Year 2's Hopefully I will start to see some exclamation marks  appearing in  your work. Have them in your 'writing tool kit' ready to use! smiley


Before I move on to 'Lila and the Secret of Rain' I thought you might like to see what kind of house Lila would be living in!

A recap on the story so far...

Today it's your final read of your non-fiction book; 'Baboons' or 'On Your Bike'. Your challenge is to read the book fluently like a storyteller and then answer the questions at the back of the book. As you have read the book three times you should have a very good understanding of what you have read. I wonder what our new book will be next week ...

Speed sounds with Rosie


Don't forget to join Rosie for our daily Read, Write, Inc phonics session anytime from 9.30am. Follow the link below.

Today I think we will all do great work with the set 3 sound ai and longer words for year 2 or those who fancy a challenge on 'ar'.

Our afternoon activity -Art



Following on from our study of some African art patterns  and colours last week, look what Xavier and his parents shared with us. Xavier’s dad is from Nigeria in Africa and these are some of their family art pieces. Look at the colours, patterns, designs and links to African animals. 

Wow! Aren't these amazing to look at?smiley From the colours of the African landscape, to the woman carrying her child, to the animals and the jewellery we can see being worn, these are fabulous pictures. The final picture highlights the African love of music and dance. heartI slipped Xavier's own art work in from last week; did you spot it? It is wonderful Xavier. 

Thank you so much Xavier and family for sharing these. 

My introduction - Iā€™m feeling a little tired by the time I recorded this. I think you can tell! šŸ˜“
