Write at least 3 sentences.



For example, The dog is eating his food out of a bowl.

The cat is on the rug.


Challenge: To make it a bit harder you can challenge yourselfCan you use the conjunction and in your sentence?


The girl is sitting on a chair and is watching TV.





LO: To compare the lives and achievements of Neil Armstrong and  Christopher Columbus


Today we will be comparing Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus. Firstly, read the slides for today's lesson. Look at the sentences on the slides. For each one, decide whether the sentence refers to Columbus or Armstrong, then check on the slides. What does this mean? Talk about what is the same and what is different about them.  


Task:  Complete the worksheet.


I have put an easier and  a harder version of the sorting sentences in the resources section to help, so choose the one appropriate for your child. Choose 2 things that are unique to Christopher Columbus, 2 things that are unique to Neil Armstrong and 2 things that are the same. If you do not have a printer, you can write one thing that is unique to Christopher Columbus, one thing that is unique to Neil Armstrong, and one thing that is the same to them both.





Here are RWI books to read with your child.  Please choose the level appropriate for your child and read parts of the book over a number of days.


When you read the book make sure that you read the How to read this book advice which appears at the beginning of every book. It is important that your child can read the speed sounds and understand and decode the vocabulary before reading the book. I have included the vocabulary cards that we use in school to help your child read the words.  Don't forget to ask them the comprehension questions too, so that you know they have understood what they have read.
