I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are feeling fantastic this morning. Please find all the work for today below. If you need anything, just send me a message.
See you at registration.
9:00 - 9:30 - Phonics 'wh'
Use these prompt cards to help you write sentences.
9:50 - 10:30 - English - Writing
Learning Objective: To be able to use adjectives.
Today we are going to be describing the fireworks. It turns to night and Plop and his family go to watch the fireworks.
Sentence 1 - We are going to use personification for this sentence. This is when we give an object human qualities. In this sentence we are going to make the darkness alive by describing how it makes the daylight disappear.
Start by looking at the PPT about day and night and watch the video of day disappearing into night.
Now gather some verbs to describe how the darkness could make the day disappear - trampled, snuffed out, won it's battle, turned off, wrapped it's arms around, wrapped it's cloak around, stubbed out, extinguished...
We are going to use these words to describe how the darkness takes over from the day.
Here is my sentence: Before long, the darkness had stubbed out the last remaining embers of daylight.
Sentence 2 - This is going to be a feelings sentence to describe how Plop is feeling as he makes his way to the firework display.
Gather some adjectives to describe how Plop is feeling: excited, thrilled, delighted, overjoyed, intrigued, curious, fascinated.
Gather some verbs to describe how Plop and his family travel to the fireworks: meandered, winged their way, hurried, rushed, sauntered, glided, swooped...
Here is my sentence: Plop was feeling intrigued as the family sauntered down to the display.
Sentence 3 - In this sentence we are going to use onomatopoeia to describe the sounds of the fireworks and some adjectives to describe what they look like.
Watch the video of the fireworks display again to give yourself some ideas and look back at your pictures from Friday.
Gather onomatopoeia words for the sounds - whizz, bang, crash, whoosh, crackle, pop...
Gather adjectives to describe what the fireworks look like - shimmering, sparkling, colourful, dazzling, shining...
Choose three sound words for your work.
Here is my sentence: Whizz! Crash! Crackle! The brightly coloured fireworks lit up the pitch black sky.
I hope all that makes sense. Let me know if you need anything. I have put the PPT and videos below. I've also put the Plot Point picture and our class display. I have done an example of what a school book would look like for this lesson too so hopefully that will help you with your ideas. I still need to add our vocabulary to the display but it shows the key events in the right order. I will start our sentence stacking board this week too with some of your amazing ideas.
I can't wait to read your work.
10:45 - 11:15 - English - Reading
Our book today is The Smeds and the Smoos by Julia Donaldson. Listen to the first part of the story and then answer three questions about it. One question is retrieval so we need to find the answer in the text. The second is an inference question where you need to think about how the characters might be feeling. The third is a prediction question. You need to predict what you think might happen next.
