Tuesday 19th lesson 2 English
LO: To publish my writing
In today’s lesson, I would like you to publish your balanced argument that you have been writing last week. You may choose to use your neatest joined handwriting or type your work. Please send it to me when you have finished it. I cannot wait to see your hard work as one piece of writing. I have been adding them to our classroom window for all to see!
Some of you might have already completed this task on Friday, if you had time. If you did, then well done!
For today's lesson, I would like you to complete pages 56 and 57 in your Year 4 Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Targeted Question Book. There is a video here called 19/1 Grammar task which explains the task and shares the answers.
YOU DON'T NEED TO COMPLETE BOTH ACTIVITIES. You are either publishing your work OR completing the grammar task.
Wednesday 20th lesson 3 English
LO: To identify persuasive language features
In Geography, we have learnt that humans can change the features of a place through their everyday choices. For example, every square mile of ocean has 46,000 items of plastic in it. We new to save our world and help people make sustainable choices.
Therefore, our next unit of writing is writing to persuade.
We are going to write persuasive leaflets inspired by the book 'Kids Fight Plastic' by Martin Dorey.
We are going to persuade people to become a #2minutesuperhero and change the world.
