Summer 2 Week 1 - 1/6/20
This week, we are carrying on with our Minecraft/Roblox/Imaginary world work. I would like you to plan and write a story involving the characters and world you have created.
Think about the following: no more than 2 characters.
What happens in their story - do they set off on a journey and get lost...find themselves in danger/get trapped somewhere/or are attacked. Think back to our work about the Stone Age. It can have a similar theme. Don't over complicate it. They set off somewhere to do something and something happens to them.
The usual things need to be in your writing:
Prepositions....noun phrases to describe your character and settings...Different conjunctions including using them for openers e.g. When...As...Since...Although...If....
Can't wait to read them. Also, send me some more ideas what we can write about next....Sci-fi...Wizards...Dragons...??? What do you want to write about?
Week Monday 18th May
Grammar Work - You can complete a couple of activities...or all of them. The idea is you practise the work we began last week about the Perfect Tense.
Minecraft Task Week Two
We are going to write instructions for building something in your world. It can be the house…a shed…a school…a ride…a tree anything you want.
Things I would like to see in your writing (the usual list as always!!! You must know it off-by-heart now).
For the next couple of weeks, we are going to create some writing centred around Minecraft OR Roblox.
For this week, I want you to create a place to live: e.g. a house, a farm, a school. If you don’t play either of these games, then create your own house, in your own imagined land.
Here are some ideas:
Conjunction and Preposition Starters - Once inside…Once upstairs…When you enter…Inside the…As you walk into…Upstairs…When you climb the stairs made of….After that….Then….In the flower-filled garden….At the end of the…Near the…
Prepositions – in, on , beside, between, next to, in-front, at the end, etc
Adverb Starters – Amazingly, Surprisingly, Carefully, With great care, Slowly, Firstly, etc
Grammar Work for 11/5/20
This week we are going to learn something new. It is called the Perfect Tense. We will start with the first type which is the Present Perfect Tense. It sounds hard, but it really isn’t – I promise. Lots of you use it all the time but just don’t know it.
As this is new learning, and the last thing we have to learn in grammar, in Year 3, just have a go. We will make this a focus for the next few weeks. So….No panicking…no stressing…and no giving parents a hard time!
If you are struggling, email me and I will help.
I want you to create some way of sharing information about your favourite animal. It can be a dog, like on the video, cat, rabbit....whatever you want. You can create: a leaflet; powerpoint; recorded video; poster....as long as it has some kind of research about the animal and I can see how you have thought about your writing.
As always, include: a range of openers; conjunctions, noun phrases to describe and prepositions.
Below are some templates to help you think about what you will research and write about. Looking forward to seeing your writing.
This week's grammar work is also below. The answers are at the bottom of the sheet - no peeking!!!
Summer Week 2 - Frogs, Frogs....Ribbit....Ribbit.
We are continuing our theme from The Twits by creating some writing about Frogs. Have a look at the following Powerpoint about Frogs. Can you:
1. Carry out your own research about frogs - habitat...breeding...their young...different species and where they are found...interesting facts etc.
2. Make sure you include good openers and also the subordinate conjunctions you have completed in your grammar work below.
3. You can create a Powerpoint and send it....a poster or information....or an actual non-chronological report. It is up to you.
After reading about the superhero, Captain Apparatus, you will now become a superhero yourself!!!!! Read on....if you are brave enough???
I have written this activity so it links with the Non-Chronological Reports we were writing before we finished. You can steal lots of ideas from there. Remember fantastic handwriting and full, detailed sentences with CL and FS!
On the sheet, there is also some information about Italy and a short comprehension to get you starter. I can't wait to see pictures of your work! Enjoy!!!
