Hope these slides help with your home school. This is something I did to help my 10 year old son with his Year 5 English.

Go through the slides/questions. Whilst hiding the answers, asking your child to make a guess at the correct answer. Show the answer and move on to the next slide/question.

The questions are easier at the beginning and become more difficult as you progress through the slides.

Move back and forth through the slides, go back if the guesses aren’t becoming more accurate.

As the guesses become more accurate ask your child to make sense of their guesses, asking them what they are noticing about the sentences which is helping them make more accurate guesses.
