The ‘timetable’ for this week’s teaching and learning is as follows
Day 1 – Children read the first half of a story about Ananse. They answer questions and then make predictions about the end of the story.
Day 2 – Provide some input, using the PowerPoint presentation* on adverbials. If children access this PowerPoint, they hear the voice-over teaching. Children read the second part of the story. They practise spotting adverbials and then re-write sentences with new adverbials.
Day 3 – Children write about the character Ananse. They use an illustration to plan a story which they then write, trying to include adverbials in their writing.
Day 4 – Children read a poem: Spaghetti, Spaghetti. They read about odes and poetic terms. They read further odes, reflect on them and annotate them.
Day 5 – Children read another ode. They use a template to plan an ode about their favourite food. They write their ode out carefully.
