Nature Studies

You all know that I love nature! Well I thought this week you could begin to learn how to identify different trees. I am attaching a leaf identification sheet. Each tree has a different type of leaf, if you know the names of different leaves then you will be able to identify different trees. I know that you can't go out yet, so I thought you could have a go at drawing/painting the different leaves from this sheet and then at the weekend you could go to your local park and see which leaves you can spot! As it is Autumn, there are lots of leaves on the ground so when you are able to  go out and collect some you could also do some leaf rubbings. I have included this file below.

Literacy

Draw a picture of this monster, then make a list of adjectives and expanded noun phrases to describe it. Next, I want you to write a short story about the monster. Telling me what:

1) He looks like

2) What kind of character he is

3) What he enjoys doing

Try and include some of our different learning from the past few weeks; expanded noun phrases, conjunctions, similes and onomatopoeia. If you can't remember what these words mean use Google to help you :)

Today we will be looking at non-fiction texts. A non-fiction text is a factual piece of writing, something that gives us information!

They can earn coins from correct answers to update and personalise their characters as well as battle with other children in their class and in Mission Grove.
