Thursday Challenge Y1 and Y2 

Good morning KS1 here is your challenge for today - It's spelling. Practice the spellings from the list. Start with the first 5 and when you have mastered them do another 5 and so on. Don't move on until you can spell them fluently. Your teacher will be so proud when school opens if you can spell them all correctly. This work can be done throughout the closure. Keep returning to them even if you've got them all correct. Haaapy spelling! You can trace them in the air, on the back of your parent, use chalk in the garden, draw them, paint them, use playdough etc. HOW CREATIVE CAN YOU BE. SHARE YOUR LEARNING WITH US.

End - How is it solved and how does it end?

CHECK: Have you used the following?

  • Interesting adjectives and verbs

Here is your starter. Change it and 'magpie' my ideas.

Early one morning on a cold winter day two young girls set off to work.  Like any other day they  walked down the cobbled street past the rows of neat terraced houses to the menacing mine. It stood on a steep hill above the small village of Month. Katie was the oldest and at ten years old she already had a stoop from all the enormous sacks of filthy coal that she carried. Mina was three years younger and was slightly built. Her face always looked sooty even after a warm bath in the tub beside the fire. Both girls walked slowly and talked about the long shift ahead. It would be gruelling! 

''Are you looking forward to it?'' asked Katie with a look of sadness in her eyes,

''No,not really as my legs still ache from yesterday.'' replied Mina.

As they entered the mine shaft..........

Suddenly ...........

After that.......

Later on.........

When it was finally over..........
