Literacy Homework Task – Ready for Tues 18th Dec

Please visit – ย www.vocabulary.com and have a go at the quiz questions on there

***Please don’t worry about how many you get right or wrong – just have a look at how the questions are set out: this will help you in this week’s job. You can also use the buttons at the bottom of the question to help you find the answers. ***

Then Mrs Hopkins and I would like you to find three words which are completely brand new to you. (These might be from vocabulary.com, your current reading book, a dictionary – anywhere really!) If you’ve been using your Reading Reflections properly, then you should have a whole bank of new words to choose from.

We would then like you to use the new words to ask three quiz questions – similar to those on vocabulary.com. For example:

precious (let’s pretend this is my new word that I’ve recently discovered)

Does the word precious mean:

1. When someone or something grows too big.

2. Something ย worth a lot.

3. A horrible feeling.

Obviously the answer would be number 2!

 

You will be given a partner whose job it will be to answer your questions as a reply. You will have to answer your partner’s questions.

This week’s task needs to be posted as a reply to this post please (not a post of it’s own). Also, try to look for and use the most original words possible!

Any problems then please let us know – preferably before Tuesday!
