ENGLISH

Do you remember how to write a script? 

Here’s another chance to perfect your skills. 

 

We are going to imagine what our characters might say, and I mean all our characters:  the bird, the girl, the boy, the whale and even the boy’s rock. 

Don’t panic because I’ve written scene 1 to remind you what to do.  Take a look then follow the instructions below.

Now it's your turn.  Write your own script for scene 2.

Scene 2 – Watch from 1:00 to 1:50.

This is where the inventor arrives but must leave. 

  • What do you think they would say in this short scene? 
  • Would the bird say anything? 
  • Is it the whale or the inventor’s island that makes that noise when the clouds go grey? 
  • What do you think they are saying? 

Use the success criteria to help you:

 

Success Criteria: 

  • List characters in that scene.  

  • Set the scene using descriptive vocabulary. 

  • Add director’s comments in brackets.                                                                            (Think whether your director’s comment needs to go before or after each speech) 

  • Include adverbs in the director’s comments so your character knows how to act or say their dialogue. 

  • Write the character’s names at the side of the page. 

  • Add the dialogue next to the character’s name.                                                             (REMEMBER–YOU DO NOT NEED TO USE SPEECH MARKS)

  • Take a picture and send it to me on Class Dojo or list the items and their mass in your books. 

 

Do you have a set of scales? 

Let's measure some random items from other parts of the house.

What can you find that has:

  • a mass of 10g?
  • a mass of 50g?
  • a mass of 100g?
  • a mass of 200g?
  • a mass of 500?

 

If you have a chance this week, do some baking.  There is no better way to practice your measuring than baking something scrumptious.  Enjoy!

 

ENGLISH

Imagine that you are Alfie.  You wake up to find yourself strapped into Miss Root’s dentist chair and you can hear her counting out all of your teeth in a metal dish.  You feel around your mouth and it’s empty.  No teeth at all.  How do you feel?  Are you in pain?  What’s happened?  What has Miss Root done?  What on earth are you going to do? 

 

Write a diary entry to describe all of the thoughts in your head.  To help you, write a paragraph about each of the following: 

  • Where are you?  Describe what you see.  What can you hear Miss Root doing? 

  • How do you feel?  What can you feel in your mouth?  Are you in pain?  Describe. 

  • What are you going to do?  How are you going to out of the chair?   

  • Where are you going to go?  You can’t go back to school.  Everyone will laugh at you. 

Don’t forget to include lots of thought and feelings.

DO NOW - Identify the key features of the text.

ENGLISH

 

Hopefully, you have been listening to the Demon Dentist and know that Alfie definitely does not want to ever go to the dentist ever again.  He’s agreed to go on a bus but, on p118, he starts to make a list of excuses as to what could happen to his bus so that he never gets there. 

 

Listen to Mrs Ely read those excuses on Class Story. 

 

Task:  Make up at least 5 more excuses.  Make them crazy.  Make them exciting.  The more weird the better.  Use as many adjectives as you can.  Include some alliteration.  You can either bullet point your ideas with a picture like David Walliams has done or create your own cartoon story board.  Have fun with it.

Red Miss Take

Art- Sketch a pet

Look at where the light shines on him.
I started by drawing his head.
Then I started to add more shading detail.
This is a lovely example too.
Look at the shadow underneath the dog.
Use heavier shading for darker areas.

I am super excited about seeing all of your wonderful art work. If you don't have your own pet to sketch, you can borrow Chewy or you can search online to find another animal to sketch.

 

I'm particularly interested in seeing your sketching skills, shade, tone, cross hatching and blending. You can look at last week's art lesson to help you to remember these skills and techniques.
