Week Commencing 17.01.2022

 

This week we continue to explore features on instruction writing, beginning to compose some of our own instructions which will begin to help us work towards our independent write next week. 

 

Monday

Looking at adverbs - Working through the slides, pupils will be reminded of what an adverb is, then come up with an instruction which includes an adverb for each of the 5 images on the slides. 

 

Tuesday

Investigating Fronted Adverbials - building on Monday's knowledge we will learn that a fronted adverbial comes at the start of an instruction and must always be followed by a comma. Pupils are to compose sentences sing correctly punctuated fronted adverbials. 

 

Wednesday

Pupils to read through the slides and watch the video (link below). Can you compose questions to the characters of the video using our high order question starters. 

 

Thursday

Looking at how we solve True or False queries in more details, thinking about the evidence to help us answer the questions. 

 

Friday

Improving our brain bank of imperative verbs. Can pupils find the verb in the instruction list and then level them up with a better imperative verb?

Explore whether or not you have enjoyed the text so far, what the message might mean and how you felt after you read it.

 

Tuesday

Lesson 2 - In this lesson you will be retrieving information from the text. Use your skimming and scanning skills to retrieve key words or phrases to help you answer comprehension questions. 

 

Wednesday

Lesson 3 - This lesson will continue from lesson 2. You will be further exploring the text by answering retrieval questions, using evidence you have found in the text.

 

Thursday

Lesson 4 - In this lesson, you will read the final part of the text. You will do some text analysis and then explore your own response to the text.

 

Friday

Writing

 

This week, we will be exploring the narrative, 'Coming Home' by Michael Morpurgo. 

 

Watch this video of the story being told by Michael. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RslbtKSrrns

 

Your tasks for this week are:

 

Monday

Make a prediction based on the front cover of the text, 'Coming Home' and evidence your prediction. Try and explain how you created your prediction using evidence from the front cover. See front cover image in resources.

 

Tuesday

Ask questions using a range of question stems about the narrative. Use the main stems such as who, why, where, when and how. As a challenge, move on to might, did and is.

 

Wednesday

Re-watch the video of the narrative. Today we will explore what 'home' means to us. On the 'home' resource below, write down anything that makes  you think of home inside the house - it could be smells, sounds and feelings.

 

Thursday

Create a story-map of the 'Coming Home' story. Use pictures to help retell the story from beginning to end. Remember to include key events.

 

Friday

Use your story map from yesterday - today you will be verbally retelling the story using it. Remember to include key words, actions and expression to retell the narrative. Make sure you use the map so that you are able to include key events in chronological order.
