Hi Indigo Class. It has been great to see so many of you recently, either online or at school among the key worker children. This is our last week together as a class and your last week in Year 5. I am excited for you going in to Year 6, I think you will do an amazing job at the top of the school and you will have a lot of fun learning with Leanne and Paul. I will only be next door if you want to pop in and see me for a catch up.
You have done a great job with learning your spellings this year. A few weeks ago, I posted this list of the most common spelling mistakes in primary school, please make sure you know them all really well before you start Year 6:
Today, we will finish our homophones work. Match the words below into pairs and then write a sentence using each one to show their meanings. For example, the cymbals are a very loud instrument. I can draw the symbol for life in Egyptian hieroglyphs.
past currant foul pause cymbal
symbol paws current fowl passed
If you do not know what a word means then use word hippo to look it up, here.
Optional extension task: create a quiz for someone in your family. Give them a list of the ten words and then give a clue and they have to guess which word it is. For example:
Clue 1: This is the name of a type of bird that is farmed for eating. (fowl)
Clue 2: This is a dried grape. (currant)
Can they guess them all correctly?
Keep going with your learning this week. You are nearly there! Look out for some fun Year 5 posts to review the year.
