Today you will be watching a video clip called ‘The Jewellery Box’, it is full of tension and has similarities to a Genie’s lamp. By the end of the lesson I would love a short piece that builds tension through magical wonder and suspense, I want to be excited by your writes and hungry to read more!
First, watch the Teacher’s TV Jewellery Box clip:
Write down your prediction – what has happened? Why?
Watch again and write down some noun phrases to describe what you can see in the shop, e.g. glistening necklaces, mysterious statues
Now build these into interesting sentences, e.g. Glistening necklaces, which dangled in all areas of the shop, caught my eye.
The clip builds up a lot of tension. Read through the suspense toolkit to remind yourself of how to build tension in writing.
Have a go at writing a narrative for this scene. Choose a perspective to write it from such as: the lady, the shop-keeper, the jewellery box. Don’t forget to build up the tension.
Share your story with a family member in your home – how did it make them feel?
Fractions Lesson 8 At the start of this lesson there is a review of the task from the last lesson– completing families of fractions that are not in an order where the relationship is perhaps trickier to see. You will then explore missing-number questions and you will be encouraged to look for the relationship between the numerator and the denominators.
