Owl Class Homework – Week commencing 20.11.20

This week’s Homework focuses and revises how to use adverbs and fronted adverbials.

This lesson includes:

  • one video about adverbs

  • one video about fronted adverbials

  • four activities

We have been learning a lot about adverbs and fronted adverbials in our school work linked to our class text ‘Star of Fear, Star of Hope’ and so this week you will be revising them and using them to create your own sentences.

Thank you to everyone who handed their home work in on time – We were blown away by the effort that went in to this week’s homework; so many of you have really got to grips with Long Division but if you haven’t quite yet please don’t worry – We will revisit later on in the year.

Remember Homework catch up club on Friday for those who don’t manage to hand in or need a little extra help completing.

Have a lovely weekend everyone x Mrs Henney
