Activity 1
Sometimes we wish for our favourite books and series will never end! One way to extend the wonder of our favourite books is to read a sequel to the book.
You have the task of writing a blurb for the sequel to your favourite book.
You can plan your blurb using the following ideas:
• Title – what would the title be? How will you link the title to the story?
• Main characters – which characters will reappear in your sequel? Will there be any new characters?
• Setting – will your sequel be set in a new location or will it be set in the previous setting?
• Plot – what problem or dilemma will the characters face in the sequel? How will you capture the reader’s interest to want to read the next book?
• Ending – don’t give too much information. You want to keep the reader interested enough to the want to read the book.
Write the blurb to your sequel and draw the front cover to your new book. We can’t wait to see your designs!


Activity 2
In maths we have been looking at statistics interpreting line graphs and pie charts. We would like you to sort your family members and friends into the different Hogwarts Houses.

 Record your results in a table and present the data in a line graph or a pie chart. What do your results show you? Which was the most popular house? Which was the least popular house?  You can complete this on J2e5 or on paper. Make sure you upload your work to BGFL.

Activity 3 
Many of you have shared books that you have enjoyed reading at home. Why not write a book review to recommend your favourite books to your friends. 
Below are ideas of information you can include: 
• Title, author and illustrator of book 
• Hook your audience's attention with a convincing statement about the how the author has engaged you using a rhetorical question. 
• Summarise the plot (remember to include details that will engage the audience but don’t give away key plot ideas or the climax of the story)
• Describe what yiu enjoyed the most and why? How did the author engage you? Think about details such as the language used; characters that author has created; or the action in the story. 
• Give a star rating!

Activity 4
Why not try the following recipes inspired by famous children’s books!

Harry Potter owl cupcakes.

Here are some examples of art and a poem to help you develop your own ideas.

Warned
The sands of time have rendered fear

Blue skies on high no longer clear

Stars were bright whence they came

Now dimmed, obscured, pollution's haze

 

Crystal clear our waters gleamed

Fish abundant, rivers streamed

Ocean floors sandy white

Now littered, brown, pollution's plight

 

Trees towered high above

Trunks baring professed love

Birds chirping from sites unseen

Gone, paper joined pollution's team

 

One can't blame pollution alone

As they say, you reap what you've sown

So let us plant a better seed

Tear out old roots, cultivate, weed

 

Protect what has been given for free

Our waters, skies, wildlife and trees

For once they're gone, don't you say

Consider yourself warned of that fatal day.

RE

LO: I understand the alternative scientific theories about how the universe started and to critically debate these theories.

Your task is to create a poster, power point presentation or a booklet about the religious beliefs and the scientific views about creation.
You might structure your presentation like this:

  • Religious stories about the creation of the world (you might want to write summaries for the different religious creation stories you have read about).
  •  The scientific views about creation. Try to include the Big Bang theory and the theory of evolution.
  • Give evidence for the religious and scientific ideas. For example:


• The creation stories have been recorded in religious texts such as the Bible and Koran, which were written thousands of years before the scientific theories came out.  Evidence for religion.
• There are fossils and skeletons to show animals and plants evolved over millions of years not just created in a day. Evidence for scientific theory.

• Different countries you may want to go to or famous landmarks that you may want to visit: The pyramids of Egypt, The Taj Mahal, The Eiffel tower.
• The places we can’t go to due to lockdown: theme parks, cinema, museum, swimming pool, theatre, school.
• The people we would like to see like your friends and family.


Now that you have brainstormed a list of ideas, have a go at writing a poem, using the repeated line,
Beyond the magical door, I could…….


Use your senses to give an idea to your audience about what is behind the door (see, hear, smell, feel).

https://prezi.com/ft46tlh3band/a-figurative-language-powerpoint/

Here is an example of a poem. You may use the ideas to help you.

The Magical Door

I opened the magical door and saw …
a world turned upside down:
the sea, now a floating ceiling,
the clouds, an inviting carpet.

I opened the magical door and saw …
the reflection of myself:
standing, searching, staring,
questioning how this was possible.

I opened the magical door and saw …
a sweet-treat paradise:
clouds of candy floss,
drifting across a bubble gum sky.

I opened the magical door and saw …
a field of waves:
blue potatoes were leaping,
playing in white foam,
as puzzled farmers watched from sunny shores

I opened the magical door and saw …
The image of a street I used to know,
But as I entered, everything changed;
As I reached out, everything had gone.

I opened the magical door and saw …
A forest of mirrors,
surrounding me in dazzling white light,
leading me into a world of mystery.

I opened the magical door and saw…
A feast of my favourite foods
Guarded by monster chips
Waiting to fight off all invaders.

I opened the magical door and saw …
Monstrous mobile phones
Herding people into little houses
And laughing, laughing, laughing.

I opened the magical door and saw…
The future.

Type up the first draft of your poem and upload onto J2E. We look forward to reading your creative ideas.

Literacy

This week you have been learning about how to punctuate speech and how you can describe the action in a story through the use of dialogue between characters. You have also been using speech to develop a character’s personality.

Today you are going to use what you have learnt and plan a piece of narrative writing about the following film.Tomorrow you will be completing your writing.

Watch the film carefully and take notes about what is happening in the scene. As part of your narrative, create a dialogue between the two main characters (the boys trapped in the battle).

Through your dialogue, you should show the action in the scene and what the reader can learn about the personalities of your characters. Remember to punctuate your speech correctly.
 

https://www.literacyshed.com/beyondthelines.html


As part of your plan consider:
• Sense impressions (what do we hear, see, touch/feel, smell).
• Examples of figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification).
• Show not tell how the characters are feeling.
• Dialogue to show how you can describe the action.
• Dialogue to show the characters’ personalities.
• How do you want your audience to feel?

 

Upload your plan onto J2E files. If you complete your plan in your book, take a picture and upload it onto J2E files.
