 Vocabulary

Investigating new words from the story helps you build vocabulary and understand what you are reading. This week, I would like you to select your own five new words and complete Word Maps for each.

Please only select words you did not already know before reading Journey to the River Sea. There should be plenty of them in this part of the book for you. 

 

Task: Can you complete a word mat for each of your five words? Click on the picture of the word map and you may either:

- print the word map and complete it using pen/pencil then take a photo of your work

- draw your own word map and take a photo of it or 

- complete it using your computer

Please email your work to me at hhobbs@sfdprimary.co.uk 

 

Here is an example of a Word Map you can draw yourself (it doesn't need to look exactly like the template I have given you)

Watch this video about how dust is formed and what it is made of. Why do you think it is important to dust your home? 

 

Watch the video below to learn how to dust your home correctly.

It might be difficult to get it right if this is your first time but, don't worry, each time you practise you will get better and quicker at doing it yourself.

If you like, you can send me a video or photo of you dusting at hhobbs@sfdprimary.co.uk  I will post the photos in the Independent Champions section of our Year 4 weekly page.
