Vocabulary: to find adjectives within a text. 

Please ask an adult to read the story of Lila and the Secret of Rain to you. You will find the story below. 

Today I would like you to look for adjectives in the story. An adjective is a word that describes a thing or place (a noun).

Use this link to watch a video about adjectives (we've have watched this before in class but might be useful to watch again). 

Please write down in your home learning book some adjectives from the text. For example:

-the burning sun


PV: Compare numbers.

Please log on to your child's email to find the video link to today's recorded lesson. 

Then answer the questions on the worksheet below or into your home learning book. 

Please email a photo to me of your child's work. Thank you.

Phonics/ Reading

Spelling: tricky words.

Read the sentences below then write your own sentences using was and my.  


Drawing: to draw a llama.

We started our culture work on Wednesday all about Peru. Today I would like you to draw a llama using the video link below. It is a step by step guide. 

 The llamas have become so synonymous with Peruvian culture that you can find some sort of llama trinket or stuffed animal anywhere in Peru. 


Maybe you could find some facts about llamas. Has anyone walked with a llama before? There are a couple of places locally. 

I've walked with an alpaca, similar to a llama, a couple of years ago. Here is a picture of me and Theo!
