"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Week 3

Handwriting practice - silent b and t

Monday 18th January - today I would like you to watch the video clip about the spelling rule for this week (silent b)


Then I would like you have a go at finding the following words from our new book in an online dictionary. Then try to find them in a thesaurus to find examples of words that mean the same e.g. old is the same as elderly, historical, worn


Words to find!

  • ancient
  • jostle
  • scroll
  • lurch


Write out the words in your exercise books and write their definition. You can also draw a picture to help you remember the word. See Miss Mabbott's example below to help!


Tuesday 19th January - read chapters 4 + 5 of Flat Stanley and talk to a grown up about what has happened in the chapters afterwards.  There is a slideshow of the pages below, or a copy of the book in pdf form if you can't see images. Alternatively, you can also listen to Miss Mabbott reading them to you in the video link below!
