Daily English Tasks

Daily English Tasks

 

For the next two weeks ( while Year One are self isolating) I will be uploading different English tasks or lessons every day. Each day there will be two  English tasks below. The first will be a picture or questions and  is a shorter, compulsory task, which should take around twenty minutes and is worth 5 j2stars. The  second task will be in a document format and is more of a challenge and is a proper English Lesson, which will take around an hour, being worth 50 j2stars. You do not have to do the second task but you will get more j2stars if you do.

 

Friday 16.10.2020

First Task- Compulsory ( 20 minutes.)

 

 

Friday 16.10.2020- Second Task (Challenge and Optional)- 2 Hours English Lessons of Poetry ( Worth Double Points/ Stars!)

Today and Friday there will be two harder English Tasks/ Challenges each day which will help you to earn double points and j2stars. You do not have to do both but it is a great opportunity to earn extra j2stars and try and get yourself a place in the top three on the leader board! Remember each harder challenge task you complete for Maths or English earns you 50 j2stars each time! Today we will be finishing off the story of Race to The River which both lessons for the harder challenges are based on. Have fun and earn lots of j2stars! :)
