Day 1 and 2

 

  • 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. (using picture books is 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.

Look at the writing prompt examples you have been given on your pack.

 

  • Day 3 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.

 

  • Day 4 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!

 

  • Day 5 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!

Chapter Three – Cyber Crime

Your 2Do’s this week are based around chapter 3 of the story.

There are some comprehension questions and a comparing characters activity.

Writing

  • Day 1 = Draw a setting from description in a text  (Use the POWERPOINT below!)

It is really important for readers to know where a story is set and what that place is like. Authors often describe a setting in detail if it is unusual in some way. They try to appeal to the senses –what can you see, hear, touch, smell. How do you feel?

1/ Read the beach setting – children to complete picture of the setting described.

2/ Read the Great hall passage from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling- Children to draw, using the description in the passage, their impression of the Great Hall before they see the photo from the film.

Now compare it to the video still. How did you do?

  • Day 2 = Understand about prepositions/ Use prepositions to vary the openings of my sentences. (Use the POWERPOINT below!)

Identify what a preposition is.

Play quiz

(http://www.educationquizzes.com/ks2/english/prepositions/)

Go through the powerpoint slides to reinforce list of prepositions and how they fit mid-sentence>

Children carry out:

Task 1 identifying preposition activity as a best joined handwriting task.

Task 2 Looking at the 2 pictures you drew from yesterday: Write some more sentences including prepositions.

  • Day 3 = Improve descriptions (Use the POWERPOINT below!)

Recap how we have improved our writing yesterday by adding prepositions to sentence starters or using them to improve our sentences.

Task 1 Improve the description of the archway using prepositions/comparatives/superlatives and other powerful description – similes/adjectives/verbs/adverbials.

Task 2 Begin to plan the Big write descriptions – Look at poor descriptions and improve.

  • Day 4 & 5 = Write a description of a setting independently (Use the POWERPOINT below!)

Write up your best descriptions from the pictures in your best handwriting and send into school to share with the children here!
