From the surveys carried out before Easter, some of the feedback we received was to provide a way to encourage daily reading and to practise spellings. Today you have a task for spelling and a task for reading.
We are going to continue with our weekly spelling tests. As before, you will be set your spellings on Friday to then be tested the following Friday.
You have two sets of spellings to choose from and your test will be set as a 2Do on Purple Mash.
Choose which spellings you are going to learn from the stars below. If you aren't confident with spelling common exception words then make sure you choose those.
You have been set two 2Dos on Purple Mash to help you learn them and get used to the test format. Next week, the words will be read to you. You only have to do one 2Do but if you want to do two, go for it!

From the survey that we sent out before Easter, some of the feedback we received was to provide a way to encourage daily reading. You can download a reading record chart from here or you could even create your own.
Every time you read, put a sticker or draw a picture in a box on your chart. Agree with your grown up what you would like the prize to be after you have read 15 times. The prize is up to you and your grown-up but it could be a film night, baking together, choosing what’s for dinner, doing an art project or perhaps time on your IPad. Choose something that you love that is going to make you want to read.
Once you have filled up your chart, take a photo and save it in your ‘My Work' Folder on Purple Mash for your teacher to see.
There are lots of brilliant websites where you can read interesting and exciting EBooks. We have created a list on the document below.
Have a look at some of the fantastic websites on the list and decide if you want to have a reading reward chart.
