Spellings - 

Adding the suffix -ful. For some words you can add -ful to the root word eg joy + ful = joyful. For those root words that end in y the rule is slightly different, the y changes to an i before you add the suffix.

careful mindful
playful dreadful
thankful thoughtful
helpful beautiful
wonderful powerful

Practise your spellings daily. There are some ideas below to help keep it interesting and think back to others we have done in class. Maybe you could make your own 'Roll the die'  list and don't forget Hangman!

Can you add to the list?

Reading and Writing

The book I have given you (The Gingerbread Man) contains lots of short stories. You can read any of them at any time but this week we are going to concentrate on...

The Door in the Mountain. 

This story is very similar to Journey by Aaron Becker that we studied in depth a few weeks ago. It's a lovely story from Wales that uses the idea of a doorway into another world, inhabited by friendly little people who should always be obeyed.

Read the story everyday and if your book contained a CD, listen to it too, this will help with your fluency.

Activity 1 

What do you like/dislike about the story?

Why did Betsi go through the door in the hill?

How did the Tylweth Teg make Betsi feel when she first arrived on the island? How and why?

Why did Betsi pick the flower?

Why do you think the daffodil lasted so long?

What 2 magical things happened towards the end of the story?

Why do you think the door disappeared?

You can discuss this with whoever listens to you read and/or you can write down your thoughts in your exercise book.

Activity 2

Draw a story map. 

Activity 3

Make some actions to help you tell the story orally. Keep practising this, you could video your performance or perform the story for your family.

Activity 4

What do you think the island of the Tylweth Teg looked like. You could draw a map, create the map out of Lego or crafty bits and bobs.

Activity 5

Write a letter to the little people, apologising for having picked the daffodil.

Activity 6

Write you own version, you can change the character and the setting. This doesn't have to be in your exercise book, you could: make your own booklet and illustrate it, type it on a computer, make a powerpoint storybook.
