Today's challenge



Copy today's words carefully - receive, deceive - and circle or highlight the 'ei' sound.

Do you know what they both mean?  If you add the suffix -ing, what changes must you make to the root word?

Carefully write receiving, deceiving.  Now practise spelling all 4 words.



Have a go at writing a camping alphabet.  Can you think of a word associated with camping for each letter of the alphabet?


Design technology

Did you know that different length twigs make different sounds when banged together?


Make a wind chime using twigs or other things you can find at home (yogurt pots, lids from jars, spoons, empty cans, twigs will all make a sound).

Hang them from a stick using wool or string. You might need some Sellotape too, to attach lids or cans to the string.


Hang it up in your garden and see what sounds it produces.
