Class Novel: Mr Stink

“Erm, well, sorry to bother you…”
“Yes?” said Mr Stink, a little impatiently. Chloe was taken aback. Why was he in such a hurry? He always sat on this bench. It wasn’t like he suddenly needed to go somewhere else. At that moment the Duchess started barking at her. Chloe felt even more scared. Sensing this, Mr Stink pulled the Duchess’s lead, which was really just a bit of old rope, to encourage her to be quiet. 
“Well,” Chloe went on nervously, “my auntie sent me five pounds to buy myself a Christmas present. But I don’t really need anything so I thought I would give it to you.” 
Mr Stink smiled. Chloe smiled too. For a moment it looked as if he was going to accept Chloe’s offer, then he looked down at the pavement.

 

Who is the Duchess?

Why did Chloe feel scared?

How does Mr Stink make her feel better?

What does Chloe decide to give to Mr Stink?

Does he accept the present? Why do you think he behaves in this way?

Reading

Today we are going to be looking at our class novel Mr Stink:

Chloe didn’t like school very much. Mother had insisted on sending her to a posh, all-girls secondary school, and she hadn’t made any friends there. Chloe didn’t like being at home much either. Wherever she was she had the feeling that she didn’t quite fit in. 

What’s more, it was Chloe’s least favourite time of year. Christmas. Everyone is supposed to love Christmas, especially children. But Chloe hated it. She hated the tinsel, she hated the crackers, she hated the carols, she hated having to watch the Queen’s speech, she hated the mince pies, she hated that it never really snowed like it was supposed to, she hated sitting down with her family to a long, long dinner, and most of all, she hated how she had to pretend to be happy just because it was December 25th. 

“What can I do for you, young lady?” said Mr Stink. His voice was unexpectedly posh. As no one had ever stopped to talk to him before, he stared slightly suspiciously at this plump little girl. Chloe was suddenly a bit frightened. Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to talk to the old tramp after all. She had been working up to this moment for weeks, months even. This wasn’t how it had all played out in her head. 

1. Why do you think Chloe doesn’t like school? Use evidence from the text to support your answer. 

 2. What month do you think this story is set in? Why? 

 3. Name 3 things Chloe doesn’t like about Christmas. 

 4. Why do you think the author says that Mr Stink’s voice was ‘Unexpectedly posh’?

 5. Do you think Chloe will change her mind about speaking to Mr Stink? Why?

History

We have looked at who the Romans were and the story of Boudicca.  Next, we are looking at the Roman soldiers.

The Romans were fierce warriors who were feared across Europe. Many cities fell to the Romans who built their cities on top of those that they burned down.  Life as a Roman soldier was strict. A Roman soldier was known as a Legionary. They often got paid a lot of money and got good food to join the army. Their commander was known as a Centurion and the Roman Army were treated as heroes by the Roman people.
Watch this clip about the Roman Army

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zn2mhyc

Life in the Roman Army was strict. Can you find out the rules that the Roman Legionaries had to follow? Use these resources for your work. Please don’t copy the rules put them into your own words.

Reading


Class Novel time!


Dear lovely children, Mrs Lakhay here. Mr Stink is my favourite all time book! So today I would like you to read the page below from the story and write a character description about Mr Stink.

Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it is correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well. He was the stinkiest stinker who ever lived. 

A stink is the worst type of smell. A stink is worse than a stench. And a stench is worse than a pong. And a pong is worse than a whiff. And a whiff can be enough to make your nose wrinkle. 

It wasn’t Mr Stink’s fault that he stank. He was a tramp, after all. He didn’t have a home and so he never had the opportunity to have a proper wash like you and me.

 

Remember: David Walliams uses the word 'tramp' to mean homeless person. We know that it is not a nice word and we don't use that word to describe people. Please do not use this word in your own description.

Mammals are hairy or furry creatures that are warm-blooded and feed their babies on milk. Most mammals are born but some hatch from eggs. Humans are just one type of mammal – there are 4000 or more different species of mammal. The human mammal group is called the Primates. Most female mammals feed their young on their own milk which provides important nutrients that help the babies grow quickly and strongly. The mammal with the longest pregnancy is an elephant. Elephants are pregnant for nearly two years with their calves, unlike human females who are pregnant for nine months. When the elephant calf is born, it usually weights about 90kgs (or 200lbs.) Compare this to the weight of an average human body, which weighs about 7lbs!

Imagine the entire giant has emerged from the ground. Draw what he looks like.

Where is the giant at the start of your story?
What does he look like?
What is he doing?
What happens to the giant?
What words or phrases are used to describe the setting?

Now make a plan like yesterday and write words and phrases that answer these questions. You may want to use some phrases that were on yesterday’s plan but change some of the words to match your character and setting.

 

Yesterday

His Iron ears turned this way and that

Today 

His stone ears turned this way and that


Below is vocabulary that you can use on your plan.

Word bank
thousands of years, colossal, monstrous, motionless, eternal slumber, emerged, almighty groan, grasped, 


When you have finished your plan, you are going to write the first draft of your description of the giant and the setting. Remember to use your imagination to make the reader feel the way you want them to feel about your giant. Your description will start with the giant coming out of the ground and it will end with it about to walk away. The words and phrases you use will create this feeling about your giant. Do you want the reader to feel sorry for your giant or frightened of your giant?

Here are some examples of plans from Faizaan, Rohan and Ruqayyah.
