Remember to use your reading skills:

 

  • Fred Talk unfamiliar words. E.g- f-r-o-g
  • Slide the syllables together. E.g fr og becomes frog.
  • Chunk new words before putting them together to read. E.g book-let becomes booklet
  • Refer to the illustrations (pictures) for clues
  • Use the Read to me function to listen to the pronunciation of difficult words.
  • Re-read words and sentences you’re unsure of to grasp the meaning.
  • Most of all, write down new vocabulary and search for their meaning in dictionaries.
  • Make sure you answer all the comprehension questions (quiz questions). This will help you to interpret the meaning of what you have read and also to practise your decoding skills.  
  • Now, write a review about your book and share with your class teacher.

   

 .......and remember, 'The more you READ, the more things you will know.'  Be awesome! Be a book nut!

Do you think flood is helpful?

Rainfall is a natural occurrence and we need rain to survive. However, flooding occurs when there is excessive rainfall.

 

Flooding is one of the most dangerous, destructive, and deadly natural disasters that can occur. They can happen anywhere, and at any time, for a variety of reasons, but there are things we can do to help keep us safe and alive when there’s flood.

 

These include:

  • avoiding water when unsupervised.
  • listening to the weather forecast (recap listening to the weather in science) or finding out about the weather daily 
  • avoiding puddles after a storm as there may be, creeks, ditches which can be dangerous. Also, that water does not always indicate its depth, and what looks like a shallow puddle may be a hole, several feet deep and we’ll get hurt when we jump into it.
  • calling for help

 

Task

To say and write some of the things they can do to keep safe during flooding.
