Thank you to those of you who were on the zoom call with me yesterday. It was nice to see you and some new faces too!
After you complete today's learning, I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Today I would like you to design a book review of our story that we have now, sadly completed.
You will need to include answers to the following questions :
-Who was your favourite character? Why?
-What was your favourite part of the story? Why?
-Would you recommend the book to anyone? Why?
-What would you rate the book out of 5 stars? Why?
Below is a template that you may use or copy onto a piece of paper.
Today you are going to write the end of the story ‘The Legend of Captain Crow’s Teeth.’ Your focus will be on what you think Marty will say about his tooth getting broken and how he will tell mum and dad or what he will tell them happened. Then what might happen to finish this story off? Will it be a happy ending for the family? Will Marty and his Brother - Will finally decide to stick together or will they continue to tease and make fun of each other? You decide.
Remember, you will need to include some speech but this should not be the whole ending, it may be included in a few sentences here and there. You must also write sentences that tell the reader what characters are doing and what is happening in the story.
Writing skills to include:
correct punctuation - speech marks, capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, question marks, exclamation mark and commas.
check it makes sense.
interesting and powerful words- adjectives, expanded noun phrases and verbs/adverbs. .
you may use adverbs/fronted adverbials to tell the reader how, where or when an action happened.
Today, I would like you to have a go on TimesTableRockstars. Log into your account and hit ‘Play’. I have individually set you all the times tables you need to practise. This is just to help you keep up with practising your times tables and improve your speed and fluency with mental maths.
I will have a look later at how your scores have improved and how many coins you have earnt.
Have fun Rockstars!
This week, I would like you to practise the common exception words spellings. They need lots of practise so below, I have attached the assessment sheets with all of the words on them. You can either practise writing them on some paper or you may choose a few of the tricky ones and practise them using the triangle method that we have been using recently.
