WB: 8th  June

Hi year 4,

Thank you for all working so hard on your English home learning. You are all trying your best in these strange and difficult times. We hope you enjoyed last week's learning. We have read some excellent stories on the narrow escape. This week you will reading tales which include life lessons. The animals in the stories make mistakes which they will certainly learn from!

Further details of activities and resources are attached.

Parents - You may find it easier to print all the pages so you have it all together but if you want to save on printing, each day references the pages which may require printing.


Aim: Read and summarise the Ananse story and reflect on it.

Today you will read the story of ‘Ananse and the Pot of Wisdom’. It’s about a spider who likes to boast. Can you summarise the story on a storyboard? Remember a summary includes the most crucial parts of the story not the finer detail.

Yesterday you read the story of Ananse. Re-read your summary to remind you of the story. Today you will be writing sentences to revise your knowledge of clauses and conjunctions. There is a PowerPoint and revision cards. You might also find this link useful:
