Winterton Home Learning Timetable


Monday 30.11.20 – boxing up invented text

Choose your best idea from those 3 you worked on last week. Then you need to box-up your idea ready to use it as a plan to write your invented text later this week.

Spelling:  words ending in -able











Here are 2 word searches that includes the relevant words so you can practise and become more confident – Word Search Black and White 1 Word Search Black and White 2 and 2 handwriting sheets – Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet 1 Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet 2  so you can have excellent handwriting as well. Do not be hesitant in doing this. You can also put the list words into a sentence – one sentence for each word. Be observant when doing this to make sure you spell the words correctly! If you would like the Powerpoint presentation for this, please email me and I can send it to you.
