WALT create a comic strip
For today's lesson, you will be putting all you have learnt this week into a final piece of work - your comic strip! You will need to use your work from yesterday with your new missions and villains. Each box will need a speech or thought bubble from one or more of your characters to tell the story. There are some speech and thought bubble templates for you to cut out and stick on to your work. If you find you do not have enough space, you could either draw your own speech/thought bubbles to fit or cut out your picture squares and stick them onto a larger piece of paper.
Here are some examples!
Add some speech and thought bubbles to your comic strip. Retell your new story of Traction Man with your grown up and think about what the characters might be feeling or saying in each scene. Use one exclamation mark in your work.
Add a speech or thought bubble to every box on your comic strip. Retell your new story to help you think about what the characters might be feeling or saying. Make sure you use at least one exclamation mark in your work.
Add at least one speech or thought bubble to every box on your comic strip. Try to include speech bubbles between characters to show they are talking to each other. Use at least one exclamation mark and a question mark in your work.

WALT make changes to a story
Work through the Powerpoint then watch the video of Miss Hemmings modelling your task!
Choose a comic strip to fill in based on how confident you feel. Remember to use Miss Hemmings' example as a guide and to keep the last box the same as it is the ending.
One star - change one scene to a new villain
Two stars - change two scenes to two new villains
Three stars - change three scenes to three new villains
Be as creative as you can! Your house will have lots of inspiration for your new villains. Maybe you could act our your story with the items around your house?
Please keep hold of your comic strip as tomorrow you will be adding speech and thought bubbles to it to create your final piece!
In this lesson we are learning how and when we use an exclamation mark. Have a look at the PowerPoint, there is a fun quiz on there, and then have a go at one of the tasks below. We will be using our exclamation marks in our lessons on Thursday and Friday.
Today, we are going to learn about speech and thought bubbles and how we can use them in a comic strip - a little bit like the ones in Traction Man!
There is a PowerPoint below that gives you a little bit more information first of all.
Have a go at one of these tasks - we cannot wait to see how you have used your speech and thought bubbles!

WALT retell a story
This week, we are continuing with our toy theme and learning about the story Traction Man is Here which I hope you will enjoy just as much as I did!
First, watch the story on YouTube.
Next, watch the video of Miss Hemmings teaching you the story map to retell Traction Man is Here.
There are 3 different star videos for you to choose from. The one star challenge has 5 sentences which are shorter and simpler language. The two star challenge has 7 sentences, uses 'and' to join and some additional adjectives included. The three star challenge has 7 sentences, using both 'and' and 'but' to join sentences and more adjectives included. Don't worry - Shadow the cat features in all of them!
There is a picture included of each star levelled story map for you to see closer if you would like to.
Draw out the story map in the blank template. You do not need to write out the story, just draw the pictures. This lesson is all about rehearsing and performing so we would love to see some videos of you retelling the story with actions!
