 Task 2: Reading Comprehension - Different Feathers by Charles Norman

✎ Download the reading comprehension resource available below.

✎ Read the poem carefully. You may want to read it aloud so that you can hear the words and see how the poem fits together.

✎ Answer the questions on the second page of the resource sheet.

 Task 3: Spelling: Statutory Spelling Lists and Activities

All activities from the Nelson Spelling Pupil Book should now have been completed since you started in Year 5. You should now primarily focus on ensuring that you can spell as many of the words from the Year 5 / 6 Statutory Spelling list as you can.

Remember, the best way to practise spelling is by taking a 'little and often' approach. 5-10 minutes every day is better than one 1-hour long session each week. It is important to practise the same words repeatedly in order to make them 'stick'.
