This week in English the children will be making comparisons between biographies and autobiographies and by the end of the week will have written their own autobiography. If you have any autobiographies that are appropriate to share with them, then please do. The powerpoint attached below, will take them through the process, lesson by lesson. As well as this, there are some materials and worksheets to support them. They do not have to fill in the worksheets, they can just complete the activities on paper or in a book.
A pdf copy of Boy by Roald Dahl has been uploaded below. This is our class reader, so please encourage them to contiunue reading it or read it with them, as they were enjoyong reading it in school and it may help give them ideas for their own autobiography.
A reading comprehension based on Boy has also been added below for the children to complete.
Remember a new spelling assignment will be available on 30.3.20 on Spelling Shed.
This term in English, we have been looking at biographies. This has involved reading a variety of biographies, comparing and looking at the simililarities and differences, identifying the features and researching a variety of famous people.
Above are attachments that remind the children of what we have done in class and what will support them with the task in hand!
Remember that a new assignment will be uploaded onto Spelling Shed every Monday. The new spelling rule for 23.3.20 is word families, 'real' and 'sol'.
Week beginning 30.3.20
If we had been at school, we would have reached our innovate stage in our topic, where the children really have a chance to be creative and use everything they have learnt during the topic.
Below are two tasks to choose from or you can even do both! Be as creative as you like!
If it was possible to live on the moon, what would your moonbase look like?
This is an opportunity for your imaginations to run wild.
What would your pets look like? What would you eat? Where woukld you sleep? What would your moonbasew be made out of? Would you live on a street, by yourself or a moonbase with lots of other people? Would you wear a space suit and if so, what would it look like? Would you have aliens as neighbours? How would you get around? What would you do for fun?
Create your own moonbases using the questions above to help you. Try watching this video about moonbases and looking at the work from last year to help you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtQkz0aRDe8
Produce an information poster or collage giving factual details about the Moonday Landings in 1969. Try to be creative and visual whilst still including necessary facts. Use books, the internet (kiddle may be a good start) to help with your research. Here are some from last year to give you some ideas.
Don't forget to still record the phases of the moon like we had been doing in class. Uisng this link to help you:
Remember that we have been bird spotting during our Outdoor Learning sessions. enjoy using the garden or birdwatching from your window and see if you can tick any birds off on the sheet above. Try to encourage the birds to visit your garden by making bird feeders. See the link and ideas below:
