Writing – EPIC Media Review

Lockdown 2.0 Daily Writing

And password (is on your parent’s email)

THEN choose one book (there are 611) OR one video (there are 218) OR one magazine article (there are 2,573) and write a Media Review.  This is much like a Book Review – importantly write the title and type of media first (book, video or magazine) then write what it is about and why you enjoyed it (3 sentences), plus what you learnt from it and who would also enjoy it (3 sentences).

You can write your Media Review in your book OR on the LOCKDOWN 2.0 Google doc.

About the worksheets

ALL worksheets come from the following 5 books (see photo).

Word ladder differs for Year 2&3 and Year 4 children.  Note these word ladder activities are at Kindergarden to Year 1 (easy) and Grades 1-2 (tricky) levels respectively.  So these tasks should be quite manageable for your child and will improve their reading, phonetical awareness, spelling AND problem solving/thinking ability.

Maths worksheets differ for each maths colour group (same as the maths boxes in class).  If your child cannot remember their maths-box colour please email me at sibilla.girardet@st-joseph.school.nz.

Note the maths Stages “3”, “4” and “EA” refer to the following year levels:

Maths Stage “3” – by end of Year 1

Maths Stage “4” – by end of Year 2

Maths Stage “EA” (early additive) – by end of Year 3

Maths Stage “5” – by end of Year 4 (NOT SET ONLINE)

So again these maths tasks should be quite manageable for your child and will improve their number awareness AND problem solving/thinking ability.
