An activity has been set on Spelling Shed. To complete their homework pupils must complete at least one game.
Word List below:
All pupils were given their user IDs and passwords. They glued them inside their reading record.
Over the next 5 weeks we would like you to create something to help you and your classmates revise. This is a 5 week project so the level of effort should reflect this time frame. Prizes will be awarded to the best creations.
You can choose at least one of the following ideas (You could do all three):
1. Create a grammar dictionary
This is where you list "grammar vocabulary" and the definitions
common noun = person, place or thing (e.g. chair, man, park)
pronoun = word used instead of repeating a name (e.g he, she)
***Don't worry about putting the words in alphabetical order, the important thing is to know what the words mean!***
2. Create a grammar quiz on as many areas of grammar as possible!
Which is NOT an adverb?
Make your quiz accurate! Don't just make up questions on your own and remember you must provide the answers too!
3. Create a game of your choice that other children can play in class.
Matching game: Make matching cards where the word is given on one card and the definition on another. Players have to match up the cards in the fastest time possible.
Grammoperly: Why not be really ambitious and try to re-create the game Monopoly but with Grammatical terms and questions
Snakes and Ladders Style Grammar: Get the question right, climb up the ladder, get it wrong slide back down the snake
You do not have to do more than one (but you can)
You can work in pairs. Please note, paired work should reflect the work of two people not be the same as one person working on their own!
You can complete power points or word documents and save them to ‘MyWork’ in DB Primary
You can complete everything on paper
You can ask your parents for help
Deadline: Wednesday 29th March
Prizes: For the best creations
