"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Week 5

This week's spellings - please select the correct group!

Monday 1st February- Today 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!

  • eternity
  • exclaim
  • loot
  • chortle


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 2nd February - read chapter 7 and 8 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! Then I would like you to draw a comic strip with short captions to show what has happened in Chapter 7 and 8.
