Spellings for the Week!
Your child will be bringing their spelling book home each week so you can see their scores from their last spelling test. Please can these little pink books be returned to school every Monday.
This week's spellings:
5 pattern words: young, touch, double, trouble, famous
5 topic words: collage, mosaic, Romulus, Remus, friction
Remember to write at least 3 sentences using your spellings.
This week: can you use similes in your sentences?
The crumbs tumbled from her plate like an acrobat.
The needle was as sharp as a wasp's sting.
Remember: any speech marks just go around the words that are actually spoken.
Challenge yourself by extending your sentences. Try to use some of these words:
Change of direction words:
but, however, on the other hand, although, despite
Cause and effect words:
because, so, so that, therefore
also, in addition, furthermore, additionally, moreover
