Monday 13th April
Lots of you have now finished your ‘Everything you Need’ stories however if you haven’t and wish to continue then please feel free to do so. We’d still love to see the stories that haven’t been sent in, so please take a photo of them and email them to us on our email links.
For those of you who have finished your stories, we have a new plan for you. Each day, we would like you to complete a piece of writing based on the day’s Pobble 365 image. You will all have seen these before in school as we have used them over the years many times. You do not need to write a full story each day but should pick up from the prompts given.
Today’s picture is called ‘An upward struggle’.
Lara let out a gasp as she reached up for the next finger hold. She could feel the sun on her shoulders; only halfway up the climb and her skin was slick with sweat. She could taste the saltiness of her own sweat as it dripped down onto her lips, making the dust that escaped from the rock stick to her face like a mask. Another grunt escaped from Lara’s mouth as she strained her muscles once again, preparing another lunge towards the top, and victory. Despite the pain, Lara loved climbing, but she had never climbed anything as steep as this before…
Think about how Lara feels at the beginning, middle and end of her climb. Can you describe her ascent up the cliff face in three stages, focusing on how her mind and body are feeling at each stage?
These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?
Lara held on to the rock. She was tired. She was determined. She was sweaty. Her muscles ached.
If any of you have access to a laptop, please follow this link as it may give you some additional ideas – we will always use the daily image, but alternative images are available should the choice not inspire you)
Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.
Research and then draw the equipment a climber might need to embark on a climb as difficult
as Lara. Then draw the view from the top. What do you think she would see?
Here are a few number tasks for you to have a go at. Write the answers into one of the books you were provided with before we closed school. We have added the answer pages to the end of today's tasks. Please have a go before checking your answers... No cheating!
