Day 3 – Children summarise the story. They read a letter from her future self to Manyara. They use imagination and reflection to write their own letters from their future selves.
Day 4 – Provide some teacher input, using the PowerPoint presentation* on adverbials. If children can access this PowerPoint, they hear voice-over teaching about adverbials. Children read a poem. They practise using fronted adverbials. They read four further poems, choosing their favourite.
Day 5 – Children read another poem. They practise writing sentences with fronted adverbials. They find a favourite poem, to match a month of the year – perhaps their birthday month – and write all or some of it out carefully before learning it off by heart.
