Thursday

Today's learning is from BBC Bitesize. All of the learning, videos and activities can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z7s22sg/year-2-and-p3-lessons.

 

English

Today's focus is to be able to identify alliteration in sentences and write your own. Start by reading through the 'Learn' section.

 

Activity 1

Think about people who are important to you. This could be friends, family or even your teacher.

  • Write five sentences about people who are important to you.
  • Use at least four words that start with the same sound in each sentence.

Here is an example: My mum is marvellous, motivating and merry.

 

Activity 2: Writing a letter

Choose a friend or family member to write a letter to.

Explain how you've been and what you have been doing over the past week.

  • Start your letter with a greeting such as, Dear or Hello.
  • You could include the joining words and to add more detail to your sentences.
  • Include a closing to your letter such as, See you soon or From.
  • Include at least three piece of alliteration in your letter. For example, From you fabulous friend, Freddy.
  • Make sure your sentences use capital letters and punctuation correctly.

Once you've finished, you could ask a grown-up to help you post or deliver it.

 

Activity 3: Spotting alliteration

Take a look at the sentences below and see if you can mark whether they contain alliteration or not. If the sentence contains alliteration put a ✔, if it doesn't put a ✘.

  • Jade, Jess and Johnny love picking pink poppies.
  • Peter was too slow and lost the race.
  • Sally and silly Simon snacked on sweets.
  • The weather wasn't wonderful, but it wasn't bad.
  • James hoped to play tennis but the courts were not open.
  • The boy sat in his room whilst listening to music.
  • A big bad bear bit my brother.
  • I just wanted to say goodbye.
  • I sat on a bench on a beautiful beach.
  • Danny designed some denim dungarees.
  • The sky was blue with no clouds in sight.
