Week Beginning 08.06.20

Monday 8th June 2020
WALT infer information about a character.

Start today’s learning by completing the SPAG mat and use the answer sheet to check your answers to the questions.

This week, we will be exploring Liam as our main character from our story Cosmic. We will be building up to writing a character description about him.

Today, we are going to look within the text to find out as much as we can about Liam. Before even looking at today’s challenges, you will need to reread chapters ‘My Favourite Gravity’ and ‘I Nearly Shaved Myself to Death.’ Once you have read the chapters, choose your challenges from below and get started.

Tuesday 9th June 2020
WALT explore the intrinsic and extrinsic characteristics of Liam.

Start today’s learning by completing the SPAG mat and use the answer sheet to check your answers to the questions.

Today, we are going to explore our character of Liam further, using the fact files and inference work we started yesterday.

Watch the video on the website called ‘Intrinsic and Extrinsic Characteristics.’ This will show you what we mean by this and give you an idea of what to do in the challenges below.

WALT analyse WAGOLL and plan our own character descriptions.

Start today’s learning by completing the SPAG mat and use the answer sheet to check your answers to the questions.

Today, we are going to look at what makes a good character description. We are going to start planning our own descriptions after you have watched the ‘WAGOLL Analysis’ video on the website. This should show you some of the key features of character descriptions for a similar character and how you could use elements of this in your writing.

Thursday 11th June 2020
WALT write a character description of Liam.

There is no SPAG starter today as you are going to be doing lots of writing in the lesson.

Today, we are going to write our character description of Liam. We will need to use the detailed plans that we made yesterday to structure our writing. To the right is an order of paragraphs that you may wish to include. This is the same way you planned your work out yesterday.

Friday 12th June 2020

WALT use VIPERS to answer reading questions.

Today’s English task is reading focused. You will need to read the chapter from Cosmic called ‘’My Visible Friend’ (pages 34-38 if you have a paper copy). Then, when you have finished reading the chapter, log in to Purple Mash and complete the quiz in your alerts.

There are 12 questions to complete. Please also bare in mind that if you do not score more than 8, we will be sending your work back as a redo. Use the book carefully to help you work out the answers to the reading comprehension.

If you have any problems with it, please let us know on the blogs. Good Luck! smiley
