Today's code for reading and SPAG on LBQ is:
“Be careful what you wish for, you may receive it.” – anonymous
Have you ever thought about what this means? This moral message is one that has been used many, many times in stories across the world. It was first thought to have been used in Aesop’s Fables. Aesop was a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece. The aim of the work we will be doing this week is to enjoy and explore wishing stories, leading to us having a go at writing our own versions.
Have a look at the Talk 4 Writing booklet called One Chance:
Today I would like you to have a look at the first few activities:
- Activity 1 - Just one wish - Brainstorm some ideas about what you would wish for if you had just one chance to make a wish.
- Activity 2 - The downside - Now try and think about the positives and negatives of having that wish granted.
- Activity 3 - The Mirror of Wishes - Writing a short poem about who might be looking into a mirror, and what they would see if their wish was granted.
Today we will be reminding ourselves about area and perimeter. Watch the video from White Rose and then have a go at the work. Remember to mark your work at the end.
