Look more closely at the next couple of pages.


Today we are focusing again on our choice of language when talking and discussing certain things.


Ask your child:
- what is the same about Bertha & Billy’s school and yours?

  • What is different about  Bertha & Billy’s school and yours?
  • Would you like to visit their school – why?
  • Would you like to show them our school? Why?
  • If you visited their school, what questions would you like to ask?


Rehearse / mind-map your answers and discuss their answers, leading to as much depth and consideration as they can. When mind-mapping; point out any suffixes you use (-er / -est)


Again, record their presentation with answers to the above questions. Encourage them to use the sentence stems:
- I have noticed that…. whereas….

- At my school there are…. However…..

- To learn more, I want to ask….

- I can see that…… is different to….

- I can see that ….. is the same as…..


I can see that… is similar to….
