Week 9 - 18.5.20

This week we have three lessons based on a book called Henry's Freedom Box by Ellen Levine and Kadir Nelson and a lesson based around apostrophes.

Lesson 1: Make a prediction from the front cover. Then listen to the story and order the events. Read the author's note and answer questions.

Lesson 2: Re-listen to the story. Read an extract from the story and answer questions. Choose the three most important events from the story, make illustrations and write captions.

Lesson 3: Complete the missing word activity (using your own words). Read about other historical figures and answer comprehension questions. Your final activity is to write a letter in role as Henry.

Lesson 4: Look at the Power Point presentations to remind you about possessive apostrophes. Read the poem 'Sea Fever' and answer questions. Practise using possessive apostrophes. Listen to the poem being read and practise reading it aloud.

Week 8 - 11.5.20

 

Lesson 1

In this lesson , we will be looking at determiners.  Determiners are words that give us a bit more information about nouns (e.g. my ball, his ball, a ball, your ball, this ball). Have a look at the Power Point (which has audio).  Then complete Activity sheet 1.

Activity 2

Look at the list of determiners sheet and choose eight determiners.

Write 8 sentences that include the determiners you have chosen.  

Challenge, can you use two or more determiners in each of your sentences?

Lesson 2

1.  Read the poem 'Hero Dad' twice aloud.

What patterns do you notice?

Which is your favourite phrase?

2.  Use the Revision Card to remind yourself about determiners.

Using the 'List of Determiners' sheet to help you, find and underline or highlight all of the determiners used in the poem 'Hero Dad' (there are 18 altogether. Can you find them all?).

3. Use the poem frame to write your own poem about someone in your family or a friend of yours.  Use your poem to explain why they are a hero to you.

 

Carefully write out your poem in your best handwriting.

 

​​​​​​​Share your poem with the person who you wrote about. 

Lesson 3

1.  Listen to a story.

Watch this video from 1:03 to 5:45

 

What do you like about the story? Which was your favourite part? What lessons could someone learn from it?

 

2. Read more stories from Africa:

 

Now answer these questions:

3. Read each story again and write a Single Sentence Summary for each story. Try to sum up story in just one sentence.

Lesson 4

1.  Read these three stories from Africa:

How are these stories similar to yesterday’s stories? How are they different? Which two stories would you say are most alike? Why? Which two are most different? Why?

3. Pick your favourite story from today or yesterday. There are 8 to choose from.

 

First make a StoryBoard for your chosen story. Use words and pictures in the boxes to show what happens.

 

Now practise telling your story again and again. What techniques can you use to make it interesting? Rewatch the You Tube clip from yesterday for ideas on how to retell a story.

Lesson 5

1. Read these two stories:

Which version of the story flows best? What is helping it to flow? (Adverbials and conjunctions)

2. Use the Revision Card below to remind yourself about conjunctions and fronted adverbials:

Look at Hunt for Conjunctions and Fronted Adverbials and read Version 2. Underline the conjunctions and highlight the fronted adverbials that you can find. Check with Answers below.

3.  Write your own version of an African story.

 

Use the story that you learnt to tell on Day 4.

Practise telling it out loud, using your Story-Board.

Now produce a written version of the story.

Rehearse your sentences out loud as you write, and decide

whether you can use conjunctions or fronted adverbials to help your writing to flow.

Week 7 - 4.5.20

 

In the first lesson this week, please watch the video and look at the power point on plural and singular possessive -s.  Then you can complete the activities.  You can find a fun interactive version of Activity 1 on Purple Mash. Just log in to Purple Mash and you will find it in the 2Dos section (Harry's Party). 

 

 

In the first lesson, we looked at the difference between a plural and a singular possessive -s. In our second lesson, we will also look at plural possessives for plural nouns that end in s.  Look at the power point and then complete activity sheet.

In lessons 3 and 4 this week, we will be looking at poetry.  The poems all use adverbials in them, so please look at the power point first to remind you what adverbials are. The power point has an audio button on each slide to help you.  Then follow through the lesson instructions for lesson 3 and lesson 4. Get an adult to read it through with you to help you.

Please send us your final poems and we will share them on the website.
