Writing

 

Over the next few days you are going to work on your own spooky story! Mr Keeling and Mr Jordan recorded the two videos below around Halloween last year but just ignore the fact that they mention Christmas!

 

You will need some paper and a pen or pencil. Don't worry about getting your story perfect today - first you need to get some good ideas down and then you can IMPROVE and EDIT them over the next few days as you learn some writers tricks.

 

To begin: have a think about spooky CHARACTERS - who is going to be in your story?

Think about spooky SETTINGS - where is your story going to take place? 

 

Listen carefully to Mr Keeling's DESCRIPTION  of the character in his story and her house, and then have a go at JOTTING down the beginning of your own SPOOKY story.......

Today's SPAG worksheet has a few activities about spelling and a section on HOMOPHONES.

For example: meet and meat.

 

I am going to meet my friend.

Lions love to eat meat.

Literacy

We are focusing on writing postcards in todays lesson.  We would like you to think about what you think some the features of a post card are, some of these are very similar to the features of a letter.  

 

Watch the power point below and write down what the features of a post card are.

Your task now is to write a postcard to your teacher telling them how lockdown has been for you.  Remember when writing a postcard we use informal language as usually they are sent to our friends or families.  Go back to Fridays lesson if you need a reminder on what formal and informal language is.

 

Looking forward to seeing all of your postcards!!!!
