This is an opportunity for your child to read a book to you. They can choose to read their book bag book that they will have from school. You can also visit the oxford owl website and choose a book of the same level for them to read to you.
Please ensure that you spend time talking about the words/vocabulary at the beginning of the book before you start and that you talk about the questions at the end of the book as well.
Spellings – moat, knight, king, queen
These are some words linked to our topic of castles that will help us in the work we will be doing. Take one word at a time and show children what the word looks like written down before they have a go at writing it. Talk about the pattern of letters or the sounds you can hear in that word. Cover the word up and ask the children to try and remember how it is spelt.
Repeat with all the other words. Practise any of the words they found tricky again.
Extension: try to put each of the words into a short sentence.

We have been looking at knights this week in some of our topic work.
This afternoon we would like you to design your own shield that you would have if you were a knight. Choose one of the shield templates and put your own design on it. Think about putting things on the shield that are important to you. Once you have finished think about how you could make and attach a handle to your shield so that you can wear/hold it on your arm.
