Little lops love learning literacy!

Using words that start with the same letter or phonic sound is called alliteration.  Can you write 26 alliterative sentences, one for each letter of the alphabet?  (Mrs Lloyd has done one for L.)  You could draw or find pictures for each sentence and create an alphabet book for a younger sibling, cousin or neighbour.

adverts

Create an advertisement!  Choose a random object or food item from around your house.  What could you do to convince someone it's the best and they need it too?  Will you draw and write a magazine ad page? Write a script for a radio or tv ad or for an online promotional video?  What types of persuasive language will you use to convince people that they really need this, that it will solve a problem that they have, or that it might improve their lives in some way?  Be creative and catch people's attention!

Maths Lessons

You might notice that some of these lessons teach you new methods of calculating or thinking about numbers than what you have learned before!  Stick with it and remember that the good thing about video lessons is that you can always go back and listen to something again.  You might also notice that in written calculations, they write little numbers for regrouping in a different place than we have done in school.  You can follow them or do what feels familiar to you instead.
