Dear 3 / 4 K,

I will give you a note today about what you need to wear for your concert item.

If you didn’t buy something from the Father’s Day stall yesterday you can buy something tomorrow morning.

It has been great to see children completing their homework.  This morning’s Reading lesson will help you with doing the homework.

Have a great day,

From Mr. Kilmartin

Homework – Term 3 Week 7

Inference: What are two things you can say about this little boy?

Look at this picture.  What are two things you can say about this little boy?

100 Word Challenge – Giant Spider

The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story.’     Ursula K. Le Guin

“By setting a limited word count with a focused theme and a guaranteed audience beyond the class teacher, children have far greater motivation for writing. Those who are reluctant writers feel safe with only 100 words to write, whilst those more advanced writers can really extend themselves with the word restriction.” https://100wc.net/

Today you will use the following photo prompt to write descriptively. You could be the spider, you may be someone arriving home to see the monster in the wall, you could be a news reporter. Remember you must write 100 words and you must use adjective to describe your nouns.

Here are some sentence starters to get you going:

Arghhhh! I scream …..

I crept outside….

My heart pounded…..
