Here is the English work for the last week of term. There will be no more work posted after this week, so I hope you can enjoy your 5 week summer holiday doing lots of fun activities.
Summary of content
Day 1 – Reading a poem, Hero Dad by Grace Nichols. Then revise and identify determiners.
Day 2 – Re-reading the poem and identifying the determiners then changing these to see the effect on meaning. Writing a poem in the same format.
Day 3 – Listening to a story being told by an African story-teller. Reading more stories and summarising these in one sentence.
Day 4 – Watching a story-teller for the second time, choosing a favourite story, plotting a storyboard and retelling the story.
Day 5 – Identifying conjunctions and adverbials in an African story. Writing a story.
The ‘timetable’ for this week’s teaching and learning is as follows
Day 1– Provide some input, using the PowerPoint presentation* on determiners. If children can access this PowerPoint, they will hear the voice-over teaching. Children read the poem, ‘Hero Dad’. They practise identifying and choosing determiners. They write about an imaginary adventure.
Day 2 – Children read ‘Hero Dad’ again. They identify and swap the determiners in the poem. They write their own hero poem, using a scaffold.
Day 3 – Children watch an African story being told. They read four more African stories and write single sentence summaries about them.
Day 4 – Children read three more stories from Africa. They watch the story-telling video again, looking for techniques. They practise a telling of one of the stories.
Day 5 – Children compare two versions of a story. They identify the use of conjunctions and fronted adverbials in one. They write a version of the story that they told on Day 4.
