Writing and Grammar: 

Adventures are the Pits! Watch this animation to motivate your writing this week. We are going to use it to help us write a script.

Talk or think about these key questions:

  • Why is the boy scared to go down the slide?
  • What is the creator/writer trying to tell us?
  • What is the main character scared of /nervous about?
  • Did the slide end where you thought it would?
  • What did the boy have to overcome in order to get out?

Write a script for the film – imagine the narrator is the voice inside the boys head – what is he saying throughout the animation?  (What am I doing? I hate slides! Come on people are watching.) You could have fun acting out your script.

Use these checklists, resources and activities to help remind you what is needed in a script:

Reading: 

Please enjoy listening to James and the Giant Peach being read aloud by celebrities – they are using such animated voices. If you missed the first 4 episodes they are under week 9 below.

The resource has been created as a fundraising opportunity which is mentioned at the start of each video, but is intended to be enjoyed by listeners. The videos are free on youtube but I have linked the first 4 episodes with the links below.

Think about the activity after each episode – these can be talking activities.

Episode 5 Why is James’s life so terrible in James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl?

Episode 6 Roald Dahl was originally going to title the story James and the Giant Cherry instead. How would that have changed your perception of the entire story?

Episode 7 Think about the different readers so far – what can you learn from the way they read? Practice reading a book of your own using the styles you have enjoyed the most.

Episode 8 How do you judge the personalities of the seven unusual friends James met inside the peach?

Please keep reading your own choice of book for about 20 minutes a day. If you can finish, you could send me a review!

Writing and Grammar:  The Lighthouse is set in a small sea-side village.  The lighthouse keeper is a curmudgeonly fellow who doesn’t seem to approve of his neighbours.  However, when disaster strikes, it is these neighbours who come to his aid.

Enjoy this weeks animation!

Watch this animation to motivate your writing this week. You are going to use this animation and write the narrative of the film including your own made up dialogue.

Talk or think about these key questions:

– Pause after the opening scenes and make predictions about what you think will happen.

– Pause the film after the lighthouse keeper slams the window shut – what does he think about the people outside the window having fun?  Why does the author put this scene in?

– How does the creator build up the tension in the film?

Use these activities to help you practice skills and develop the story from the narrative:

1) Practice your script skills for imaginary interviews with lighthouse keeper, villagers and men from the boat.

2) Practice your inverted comma skills for imaginary conversations between the same characters.  Use this practice sheet to remind you of the skills Dialogue-writing-activity-sheet.

3) Create a story board for the main events in the animation story-board-templates.

Writing and Grammar: Catch It! 

A group of meerkats lovingly tend to a beloved and unique fruit in the middle of the savannah. One day, their peaceful existence is disrupted by a vulture intent on stealing their pride and joy. Will the meerkats be able to get it back?

2) Describe the beautiful setting of the African plains. Practice using your descriptive noun phrases (modifiers, adjectives and nouns)

3) Create some dialogue between the meerkats at various points in the film. Practice your inverted commas.

4) Create some commentary for the ‘rugby’ scene at the end of the film – use iMovie to record this commentary over the top of the original film or record your commentary on another device then play it back at the same time.

5) Create a story board for the main events in the animation story-board-templates.

  • We have purchased a subscription to Times Tables Rockstars – please use it at home to support the learning of multiplication facts.
  • Another Times Table game can be accessed by clicking on the link below:

 http://www.mathschase.com/

Homework is set on:

Friday afternoons, and is due back in no later than Wednesday morning. If your child does not understand the homework set, please encourage them to ask Mr Butterwood  to explain it to them again.

Other important information:

We practice a different spelling rule each  half term, and the children are given a list of spellings to practice at home. A re-test is done 2 weeks after the spelling rule is introduced. Some of the spellings on the re-test will be from the original list given to the children, whilst some will be new words that follow the spelling rule. Therefore it is important that the children understand the spelling rule so that they can apply it to new words. You can help your child by talking to them about the spelling rule and asking them to spell words which follow the rule that aren’t on the list given to your child.

Could you please make sure that your child’s name is on each piece of uniform and PE kit, including their tie. This is so that we can easily identify any lost uniform.

To ensure uniform remains clean, we are advising all children to bring in an old shirt to wear over their uniform when painting and carrying out creative work in lessons.

If you would like to discuss any of these aspects further feel free to make an appointment.

Thanks,

Mr Butterwood

A.S.A Diversity Week  – Disability 

07/09/18

Our first class topic focused on learning about Disability. We wanted to learn more about how people live, learn and work their day-to-day life. We created questions for a carer (who works with young adults with varied learning difficulties) and her clients. We were lucky enough to meet these people and gain some extraordinary insight into their lives. The topic really made us reflect on people’s varied needs but best of all we made new friends and had great fun! Some of the pictures are posted below but be sure to check out our class Twitter page (Link at the top of this page) to see more examples of our work and our class display!
