Spellings

This weeks spelling are available on Spelling Shed and we do check to see how many you get correct. 

Theme

This week we have asked you to think about who you have been reliant on whilst Britain has been in lock-down. Your task is to say thank you and we have left how you do this up to you. Ideas we thought of were: letters; cards; posters; advert/video etc.

Be as creative as you can.

Please email your work back to class5H@springhill.lancs.sch.uk.

Here is a link to a thank you advert currently showing on TV.

I have created a WAGOLL letter for you, have a read and see what you like about it and what you think should be changed.

Thank You,

I cannot address this letter to one person, there are too many people I am thankful and grateful for.

Firstly, I am thankful for Kai (yes, he is my dog!), he gets me out of the house and into the outdoors for a 4-5 mile hike every day. He senses when I anxious and he is always there to give a helping paw (or a sloppy kiss).

I am thankful for my dad, who calls to check in with me several times a day. I am grateful for the rambling phone calls off my niece, who just likes to tell me how her day has been and what she has done. Hearing her make plans for after ‘the virus’ lifts my spirits. 

I am forever grateful for the selfless workers in supermarkets, who keep the shelves stocked and the shops open. The delivery drivers, who travel the country, transporting essential goods.

I am thankful for those in charge, working around the clock, bearing the weight of the nation on their shoulders. We may not always agree but I am grateful of their efforts in keeping the country safe.

Last, but by no means least, I am thankful of our heroes working in the NHS and carer workers, those who have risked their lives to care and treat those we cannot.

I am thankful for a lot.

Thank You all!

Mrs Brunskill

 

Once I read through the letter, I realised I have overused the words thankful and grateful.

Here are some synonyms to use instead:

Synonyms for thankful:

  • Appreciative
  • Indebted
  • Relieved
  • Satisfied
  • Beholden
  • Overwhelmed

I also realised that many of my sentences started with I and this got very boring. I decided to add adverbial starters.

Adverbial starters:

  • Moreover
  • In addition
  • Also
  • Furthermore
  • Likewise

Here is my edited letter. Make sure to edit your work.
