For literacy this week, I would like you to follow the link below and complete the daily work provided by Oak National Academy.  This week, you will be practicing key word retrieval during a reading comprehension, identifying key features of non chronological reports, writing a non chronological report and reminding yourselves what modal verbs are.  I think it is a good idea if you practice the spellings provided during the tutorial as well as the spellings I have provided for you.


The Oak National Academy spellings are:

(i before e except after c rule.)










If you are unsure of the meanings of any of these words, check in an online dictionary.  Can you find any synonyms or antonyms?


The following resources will remind you what a modal verb is.
