Lessons 1 and 2: Classifying and grouping animals
This week we are continuing with the work we started in Science last half term, which was about animals and living things. You learnt how animals are classified; e.g. what makes a mammal a mammal? If you remember, you worked in groups and completed an activity that looked like this:
Moving on from this work, we will be completing an activity based on Zoo animals. Check out the scenario below:
Watch Mr Smitten's video walk-through below, which will guide you through this work. The resources for this activity can be found underneath his video link!

Mr Richardson is also very keen for you to watch his assemblies so go to the tab on the website, entitled 'Assemblies'
Dictation and spelling
Your task today and tomorrow afternoon is to complete 2/3 dictations exercises. To do this, you will need help from an adult or an older sibling. Dictation means that something is read to you and you have to write down what is read, as perfectly as possible:
-Handwriting MUST be super neat
-Spellings should be correct
-Punctuation should also be correct
Choose your own dictation exercises from the PowerPoint below:
Once you have chosen which exercises you would like to do, ask an adult or an older sibling to read them to you.
After you have finished the exercise, give your handwriting a mark out of 10, also mark the punctuation. If you missed some punctuation marks, learn where they should have been and finally, if you spelt anything incorrectly, PRACTISE AND LEARN THE SPELLINGS!
