Home Learning WC 22nd June

 

Hi everyone, I hope that you enjoyed last week’s learning. A picture book without words has endless possibilities for creative writing. Also, it is a great opportunity to practice the skill of show not tell. I have attached a link to a wonderful video from literacy shed that reinforces show not tell. You can understand the character’s feelings through the farmer’s actions:

https://www.literacyshed.com/windmillfarmer.html

 

I have added the next chapter of our story to your 2DO list along with some follow up activities. Thank you to everyone who has sent in some work so far, whether it was your comic strip, a picture of your superhero or Andy Goldsworthy creation. I am very proud of you all. Please keep up the good work and keep emailing in examples of you work. 

 

Over the course of the week remember to:

  • Read every day for at least 15 minutes.
  • Practise your spellings every day and try and test yourself once a week.
  • Keep your times tables recall fast and furious by going on TTrockstars when you can.

WALT: Plan a story including a detailed description of settings and dialogue to show a relationship 

  • Include description of a typical setting and characters
  • consider the range of specific nouns used to develop the description of settings and characters
  • Include dialogue between the boy and girl

Outcome of these 2 weeks is to create the descriptive setting writing and storyline missing in the picture books by Aaron Becker. This week I have also introduced writing direct speech.

 

We are using another wonderful picture book by Aaron Becker and watch: ‘Quest’ by Aaron Becker (picture books are ageless!)

 

This week, alongside our descriptive writing, we will focus on creating dialogue between the girl and the boy. Their relationship is friendship so this will need to be expressed in the speech you write. I have included rules for writing direct speech in the resources below.

 

Have another look at last week’s Journey story you wrote to remind yourself of the descriptions you used – how did you paint these pictures in your readers’ minds? Remember to use these vivid descriptions in the narrative parts of your story.

 

Start the video link again and pause at each different setting to jot down description and possible dialogue between the two children at each scene.  Use the story board planning sheet (1) to help organise and sequence the events.

Ask yourself:

How can we paint a picture in our readers mind?

What can we see?

Why do you think...?

What would be an effective vocabulary choice here?

Why?

Include ideas to show the dialogue between the two children in speech bubbles.

Include adjectives/powerful verbs/expanded noun phrases/prepositions/fronted adverbials.

Wednesday

WALT: Write the beginning of the story including a detailed description of the opening settings and interesting introduction to hook in your reader!

Remember to paragraph your work – TIP start a new paragraph for each picture/change of scene!

Include an interesting time adverbial to move each part of the story along (don’t forget the comma).

Continue to describe each setting vividly using well-chosen vocabulary choices.

What is the girl doing? What might the girl be thinking/feeling at each setting?

What will the two children be saying to one another – follow the rules for writing direct speech.

 

Thursday

WALT:Write the middle parts of a story including a detailed description of settings

Continue through the settings telling the story looking very carefully at the details in the pictures and the speech you have chosen – continue to remember to be very descriptive – experiment with different sentence starters/prepositions etc. Rehearse all the wonderful ways we have learnt that make our sentences more interesting to the reader. Keep using the direct speech writing rules!

 

Friday

WALT: Write the final parts of a story including a detailed description of settings

How does this picture book end? Again, make your reader want to go on an adventure just like this one!

 

Topic – Crime and punishment

 

Lesson 7

Victorian prisons continued

 

Last week we explored a range of chores inmates had to undertake in a Victorian prison – some tasks had a purpose such as the treadmill whilst others were monotonous tasks to keep the inmates busy and under control such as the prison hand crank.

 

This week, I would like you to design your own prison cell and invent your own chore to keep an inmate busy.

 

Black History

As I am sure you are all aware, there is looks of talk in the news about the George Floyd, people protesting in the streets and black history. This week we have included some information about these events.

 

BCCB video links:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/49883230 - What is black history month?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/41453182 - Why is it important to me?

 

This website has a list of some activities you could do linked to ‘Black History Month’
