Yesterday we were looking at using capital letters correctly for the following reasons: (Check if your child can remember)

 

  • at the beginning of a sentence,
  • for proper nouns (names, places, countries, days of the week, nationalities, languages),
  • when using I to talk about yourself.

 

Today we are going to continue practising using capital letters correctly.

 

Activity 2: Let's write about other people

 

Watch the short video about Joe Wicks and then try writing some sentences about it.

 

 

 

Joe Wicks talked about five different exercises in his video. Can you remember what they were?

 

He did a different exercise on each day of the week. Can you write a sentence to say what he did on each different day, eg:

 

On Monday Joe did ___________________.

 

Can you complete for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday?

 

Can you write the sentences? Remember to use capital letters correctly.

What is sound?

Sounds are made when objects vibrate.

The vibration makes the air around the object vibrate and the air vibrations enter your ear - you hear them as sounds.

You cannot always see the vibrations, but if something is making a sound, some part of it is always vibrating.

 

In the video below, Seymour Science explores how sounds are made.
