quarter                              squash

quantity                             squat

What do you notice about all these words? They all start with 'qua' or 'squa' but make a 'quo' or 'squo' sound. Copy these words into your workbook. Use a colour pencil to write the 'qua' or 'squa' part of the word or underline the 'wa' part. Then choose 4 of them and put them into a sentence (2 'qua' and 2 'squa.)

L.O: To identify the features of persuasive writing.

Look at some examples of persuasive writing attached. What do you notice about the posters and leaflets?

Persuasive text often includes:

• repeated words
• alliteration
• wow word- amazing, fantastic, breath-taking etc.
• offers
• rhetorical questions (questions that don't need a direct answer- such as 'Do you want an amazing experience')
• colourful and eye-catching fonts / capitalised words
• humour

Look at the posters and leaflets again- can you spot all these features. Underline in different colours.

Make a list of the features of persuasive writing underneath.

Science

Tuesday 2nd March

L.O: To explain the life cycle of a bean.

Today, we are looking at the life cycle of a bean. Watch the 2 powerpoints below and talk to your grown up about what is happening and how it is a cycle and it starts all over again when a new seed falls to the ground. In the second powerpoint, there is a video to click on but it comes up with an age appropriate message (don't ask me why- it is a time lapse video of a bean growing!) The time lapse video is attached separately below. Watch the video and remember that this is filmed over a long time and then speeded up.

Now, complete the activity on the life cycle of a bean. Complete either the 2 or 3 star sheet (3 star is better.)

Complete the comprehension activity on beans.
