Reading

We have started to use the site Fiction Express to support you with your reading.  This has a choice of three books a week with a chapter being released each day.  Please choose a book and read a chapter.  There are activities to carry out afterwards which include voting on what happens next and talking to the author - how exciting!  Your usernames and passwords have been emailed to your grown ups so log on and have a go!  Let us know what you think.

Writing Week Beginning 1st June 2020

This sequence is based on The Iron Man by Ted Hughes - one of my favourite books!

Writing Summer Week 5

This sequence is based on Kit Wright's poem, The Magic Box.  At the end of the week you will create your own Magic Box poem. We can't wait to read them! 

Writing Summer Week 4

This sequence is developed around George's Marvelous Medicine and a picture called The Alchemist.  At the end of the week you will describe how you designed your perfect world in a bottle. 

 

Writing Summer Week 3

This sequence is developed around a short video: ‘Something Fishy.’ https://vimeo.com/24962214.  By the end of the week you will write your own short story to accompany the film.

 

Writing Summer Week 2

Following on from creating your own animals last week, this unit of work focuses on The Big Blue Whale, a text by Nicola Davies and also features a visit to San Diego Zoo via their webcams!  The writing challenge at the end is a non-fiction information page about an animal of your choice.  I really hope you enjoy it.  I have certainly enjoyed checking out the different animals on the webcams - the elephants are my favourites!

 

Writing Summer Week 1

I have chosen this unit of work as it looks really fun - I wonder what weird and wonderful creatures you will create!  There are five lessons in total.  Complete a session a day if you can.  Good luck!
