Homework is updated every Friday.
This week in English, we have been practising using inverted commas to punctuate speech in our winter-themed stories.
For your homework task this week, I would like you to write a speech conversation between 2 mischievous elves.
What might elves say why we aren't listening?
What tricks might they be planning?
The inverted commas 'hug' the words that are spoken.
e.g. "I love candy canes," said the elf excitedly.
to include the appropriate piece of punctuation within your inverted commas (a comma, a question mark or an exclamation mark.)
To include a reporting clause.
e.g. shouted Elfie, whispered Snowflake.
Please post your writing on the class blog by Friday 4th December.

Play on Times Table Rock Stars at least 3 times a week. The APP is free on the App Store. At the moment we are practising our 2s, 5s and 10s. Times Table Rock Stars is set to Automatic Training Mode. This means the app will decide when your child is ready to move on to learning new times tables. This is usually once they can do the inverse operation (divide) as well as multiply.
