Here is the First News edition for 3rd - 9th April.

Thursday 9th April 2020

Reading
Today we are asking you to create a new character for a book that you have read, or are reading. We would like you to draw this character, and then write around them:

• How do they enter the story? Where in the story do they enter? How do the other characters react?
• How does their presence in the story change what happens? Why does this change?
• How do they interact with the other characters- who are their friends? Enemies? Family?
• Write the final paragraph of the book again, containing your new character.

Literacy
Complete the punctuation activity on parenthesis on Bug Club. This has been set for you as homework so will appear as soon as you log in.

Yesterday you finished your rough draft of the missing chapter.
Your target today is to edit and improve your writing.
Remember:
1. Read aloud
2. Add
3. Replace
4. Take away
5. Read aloud again


Read your writing out loud to someone else in your house and ask for feedback.


• Are all of your tenses correct?
• Which part of the writing did they enjoy the most? Why?
• Which part would they improve? Why?
• Were there any parts of the writing where they got confused? How could you make this less confusing?

Think about your year 6 punctuation targets:

Can you try to include all of these in your writing?

Tuesday 7th April 2020

Reading
Read the First News article below:

Once you have done this, answer the questions below in your home learning book or on j2e.
1. What impression do we get of the character Ian from this interview? (3 marks)
Make sure you aren’t talking about the actor, Tom Holland, in your answer.

2. How does Tom Holland appeal to the reader? (3 marks)
Think of two positive elements of Tom Holland’s personality that we learn from the text. Use evidence to show why we are given the impression he is like this and explain why this appeals to the reader.

Here’s an example based on our poem, Mr Mistoffelees:
Mr Mistoffelees’ character appeals to the reader as he is magical. The text states that he can perform ‘surprising illusions’ and create ‘eccentric confusions’. This makes the reader feel excited as they want to find out what amazing magical trick he might perform next. His character also appeals to the reader as he is intelligent. The text describes him as ‘cunning’ and says that he wins any game by deceiving his opponent into thinking ‘he is only hunting for mice.’ This makes the reader feel curious about what else he is able to do with his significant intellect.

Literacy
Complete the grammar activity on expanded noun phrases on Bug Club. This has been set for you as homework so will appear as soon as you log in.
https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/resource/212601
Make sure you watch the videos and read the information carefully to help you with the grammar rules, before playing the game.


Writing
Yesterday you planned the missing chapter for your chosen book. Today you are going to write your first draft.
Remember that you are writing the chapter for someone who has not read the book before. Try to include as much information for the reader as possible.

Your target for today is to include examples of show not tell to describe the characters’ feelings and personalities.
https://prezi.com/ypsrvaxycbcg/show-dont-tell/
Here are some examples of show not tell to describe your character’s feelings and personality:
• He breathed deeply, leaned forward and pounded his fists on the table.
• Shoulders slumped, she continued to walk forward, averting her eyes.
• Her eyes darted around the room frantically, desperate to find a way out.
Spend 45 minutes writing the start of your story today- you will finish this tomorrow.

Writing
This week you will be writing a missing chapter for a book of your choice. This could be a book that you are currently reading; a novel that you have read in class or during guided reading sessions; Kensuke’s Kingdom, which some of you took home; or any book that you have enjoyed reading in the past.

 

Think back to the missing chapters you have already written in class for the books: A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Wind Singer and how you structured the events in these chapters. Use these ideas to help you plan your own missing chapter.

Today we would like you to plan this writing.
1.  Think carefully about what is going to happen in your chapter.
2. How will you introduce your characters? What impression do you want the reader to get of your main character or characters? What adjectives and powerful verbs can you use to describe them?
3. Will there be action in your chapter? How can you use powerful verbs to move the action forward?
4. Remember to add suspense by using the techniques you have been learning in class.
5. When including speech, remember to punctuate it correctly.
6. How will you keep the reader interested?
7. Can you end your chapter on a cliff hanger and leave your reader wanting to find out more?

Plan this writing in your home learning book or on a piece of paper. You will need it tomorrow.

Reading
Today you will be comparing two poems by the same author. One you read last week: Macavity
http://monologues.co.uk/Childrens_Favourites/Macavity.htm


Today’s poem is Mr Mistoffelees
http://monologues.co.uk/Childrens_Favourites/Mr_Mistoffelees.htm


Once you have read each poem, click here to watch a video of Mrs Hunt Stewart discussing Mr Mistoffelees:


Now you can answer the question:

Compare Macavity and Mr Mistoffelees (3 marks)
Remember to include one similarity, with evidence from both poems, and one difference.
You can do this on j2e or in your home learning books.

Writing
Watch the clip again to remind you about the Tale of the Three Brothers you are writing about today:
https://vimeo.com/groups/cgshorts/videos/42287792

Yesterday you planned the story from the perspective of Death. Today you are going to begin to write your first draft. Remember you want to show the reader how cunning and evil Death really is.


Your target is to include direct speech to help further the action of the story. Remember to think carefully about the reporting clauses you will use  including other words for said.

Here are some examples to inspire you:
“Wait. We should not go any further brothers. We do not know what is lurking behind the shadows,” warned the eldest brother as he searched around him.
“What is that foul smell?” exclaimed the man, quickly covering his nose with his handkerchief.
“Hello gentlemen,” began the figure lurking in the shadows, “What are you doing here?”
Remember you want the reader to figure out what is happening by themselves, use show not tell (using the 5 senses) when describing the setting or characters.
Spend 45 minutes writing the start of your story today- you will finish this tomorrow.
