Homework – 1

This week’s homework is literacy focused.

In literacy, we have been writing about who Indiana Jones is. We have used expanded noun phrases to create a clear image for our readers. We have used 2 adjectives and a noun, the 2 adjectives are separated by a comma.

We have also up levelled our vocabulary this week through the use of a thesaurus. For example, instead of using a ‘boring’ word such as big, we have used colossal, monstrous, humongous etc…

For your homework, I would like you to pick a family member and write about them in a similar way you have done with Indiana Jones.

Spellings

I will also be testing you on all of the key spellings for our topic on Friday.

tomb
Egypt
mummy
pyramid
ancient
mummies
pharaoh
sphinx
buried
treasure
sarcophagus

Please remember – Homework is uploaded to the blog every Friday. The following Friday will see a new homework task along with the answers to the previous week’s homework.
