Week 2 Learning

Tuesday 14.4.20

 

 

 

 

Good morning to my wonderful Woodpeckers! 

 

I hope you had a fantastic 'Easter Break', even though it might not have felt quite the same as normal. I would love to see and hear about any of the Easter activities I set you to do, or just send me an email a bit like a diary or a letter telling me what you have been up to for the past couple of weeks. I really miss seeing and speaking to each and every one of you - and especially all of the laughs we had in class! What is your funniest memory from this year? Mine is the dressing up on our Victorian trip! Ha ha! 

 

Anyway, below is your learning for today. 

Take care and keep smiling. 

Mr B 

 

Tuesday 14th April

 

English:

Re-watch some of the stories we have been learning about for our topic.

  • Ali Baba and the forty thieves
  • Sinbad and the seven voyages
  • Aladdin

As you are watching them, think about what story YOU could write in a similar style.

Could you do the same, but change all of the characters?

Could you do the next adventure? What happens next?

Could you make up your own story? – in the same style.

Start thinking about this today.

Hi Woodpeckers, 

 

Thank you for all of your lovely emails yesterday. It was so great to hear from you all! 

Hope you enjoyed getting back to some learning, your next lot is below.

English:

Choose your story that you are going to do. Then, pick your 3 main characters.

Describe them. What are they like? What do they look like? What are they like as a person?

Role-play: Can you dress up as them using things around your house? Try walking around and pretending to speak and act like them for a while. See if you can get your family to pretend too!

Good morning Woodpeckers, 

Here is your learning for today. 

Enjoy! 

Mr B 

 

English:

You are going to focus on the settings for your stories.

Palace? Desert? Island? Cave of wonder? Round City?

It’s up to you where it is! When you have decided, describe what you can see, hear, smell, feel, taste.

Can you think of any similes to describe it? You can draw a picture of some of the settings and write words to describe it around the edge.

What is a setting?

Gooooooooooooood morning Woodpeckers! 

Rise and shine - it's Friday! 

Today is our last day of the week, and our final week on our school topic, 'Early Islamic Civilisation'. Next week, we will be starting a brand new topic...it'll be a surprise on Monday but I think you are going to like it.

Anyway, enjoy your learning and send me anything you do. If you want me to put your story on our class page, then type it up and send it over! 

Have fun, 

Mr B 

 

English:

Spend some time planning your story. Create a story map with all of the key events in your story. Remember to try and draw 10 steps.

Make sure you have a beginning, middle and an end – with problems and solutions in between!

Remember to think about the plot of the story…this might help!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpWHZJZQDSE

 

Then, write your final story. You have got the paper for this in your pack.

Give it a good title at the top!

Remember to focus on describing the characters and settings. Use your best handwriting and check your spelling and punctuation as you go.
