Week Beginning 04.05.20

Thursday 7th May 2020

WALT write a summary of the encounter between Hiccup and the Green Death.

Today we are going to focus on Chapter 16 again. This time, we are going to focus on our summarising skills. I want you to write a telegram report to Stoick, explaining that his son has gone missing in action. I have attached an example of what the telegrams used to look like below and the kind of thing that was written on them. Could you enhance your telegrams to Stoick by explaining what Hiccup was doing at the time when he went missing?

As an extra challenge, why not try making the telegram look authentic by staining the paper with a tea bag?

Put your completed work into your work folder to share with your teachers for marking! Good luck and have fun!

WALT use our VIPERS skills to answer questions about Chapter 16.

Please carefully read Chapter 16 – ‘The Fiendishly Clever Plan Goes Wrong’ of How to Train your Dragon using the Word or PDF document on the previous page. Once you have read the chapter please complete the 2Do quiz for Chapter on Purple Mash. There are a variety of questions so you will need to use many of the VIPERS (Vocabulary, Inference, Predict, Explain, Retrieve and Summarise) skills.

Tuesday 5th May 2020

WALT use the information from a text to write a short commentary of an event.

Today, I would like you to re-read Chapter 15 – ‘The Battle at Death’s Head Headland’ of How to Train your Dragon using the Word or PDF document on the previous page. When you have refreshed your memory of the chapter, I would like you to look closely at the section where the Green Death and Purple Death are fighting. I want you to write a commentary of the event. What would be said? What would the reaction of the crowd be? You can choose what direction you take it in (either serious, sport or comedic) but I want to see references to the book made and the outcome of the battle is the same as in the book. Upload your commentary (either written or spoken) into your work folder for marking! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
