Task 2: Spellings and SPaG

Don't forget to practise your spellings too, which also follow this spelling pattern.

You will now be tested on these words on Friday 10th April. 


SPaG: Complete the Possessive Apostrophes Practice worksheet. Remember, an apostrophe is used on an owner to show possession. One owner: before the s. Two or more owners: after the s. 

E.G. The girl's coats were on the floor (one girl). The girls' coats were on the floor (multiple girls).

Task 5: PE

This half term, we are practising and improving our tennis skills. 

Using the YouTube clip below, have a go at these 5 drills to improve your stamina, agility and speed in tennis. 

You may need to adapt them depending on whether you are in your local park, your back garden or your living room! You can also adapt the equipment shown e.g. use balls or balled up socks instead of cones, use any kind of bat or racket you have at home, or use books to hop over. Be creative to get active!
