Day 2 - Retrieval  - Find and record information straight from the text.

Day 3 - Vocabulary- Find and explain the meaning of words in context

Day 4 - Thinking Caps - Inference - Work out information from the text, using evidence to support your ideas.

 Sentences 2


Spelling Bee

 You can choose which days you complete these activities.

Activity 1:

Look at the ‘ough’ words and say them aloud. What do you notice? Organise the words into a table according to the way they sound:

'or' sound 'ow' sound 'o' sound 'uff' sound 'u' sound 'off' sound



Activity 2:

Look at the ‘ough’ spelling words again. Write a definition for each word (remember not to use the word itself in your definition). If you are not sure what a word means, use a dictionary (or dictionary website such as: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/ ) to find the definition.

Activity 3: (Spelling and handwriting)

Look at the ‘ough’ spelling words again. Pick 6 of the words and write 6 sentences including those words, used correctly. Extra points for interesting sentences. Remember neat handwriting, correct spelling and punctuation.
