Reading - Group 1
'Goodnight Mr Tom' by Michelle Magorian.
This week, we are reading chapter seventeen.
There are some very important issues in this week's reading, some of which you may find upsetting, so you might like to read with an adult and discuss the ideas contained in the story. If there is anything that you don't understand, please try to find someone to ask, or post your questions on the class Padlet.
As you read, you might like to refer to the reading prompts.
This week, we are again COMBINING OUR READING STRATEGIES: PREDICTING, QUESTIONING, CLARIFYING, SUMMARISING, INFERRING, MAKING CONNECTIONS AND EVALUATING.
Here are some questions specific to the text, which you might like to think about:
Reading - Group 2
MONDAY - Possessive Apostrophes - Plurals
TUESDAY - Fronted Adverbials
Complete each sentence in an interesting way. (Remember that a fronted adverbial is always followed by a comma.)
WEDNESDAY - Strong Verbs
THURSDAY - Punctuation
Punctuate this piece of text correctly. (Remember to add capital letters where they are required.)
from the top of the hill he could see the whole town taking a deep breath he called hello there can you hear me there was no answer only the echo of his own voice
FRIDAY - Irregular Plurals
Most singular nouns can be made into plurals simply by adding an 's' ... but there are many irregular plural nouns.
Write down the plural form of these singular nouns:
city fish church life woman family child bus sheep half
Use this picture as inspiration. You can write a short story, a biography, a setting description, a diary entry, ... anything you wish. Just make sure that you follow the non-negotiables: basic sentence punctuation, paragraphing, and neat, legible handwriting.
Today, you should edit and redraft your writing from yesterday.
Remember that there are two main features of editing: correcting and improving.
Look out for basic mistakes in punctuation, spelling and grammar. Also look for ways in which you might improve your text.
When you have finished, you might like to post your work on the Anson Blog.
Below is another link to a book set during World War 2. In this book, however, the Second World War is seen through the eyes of a child who lives in Germany.
The book takes the name of its central character as its title 'Rose Blanche'. It is written by Ian McEwan and illustrated by Roberto Innocenti.
This is another historical story told over a
number of months.
As you read this story, think about how the author shows that time has passed.
Order these stages of the story of 'Rose Blanche'.
Now decide on a time adverbial to introduce each stage of the story. (Remember that fronted adverbials are always followed by a comma.)
Choose from this list:
every evening sometimes one night
next morning first soon on Monday morning
on Saturday nights on wet days that night
one afternoon later the next day
meanwhile then in the beginning
many weeks later afterwards quite suddenly
in the spring straight after that years later
no sooner had he …… than …… secondly
at last finally soon the following year
every day each morning after
Next week, you will be writing your own story – based on a photograph taken during World War II.
Try to imagine being in one of the scenes. What can you see, hear, smell, feel or taste? Who is there? What are they thinking? What might they be saying?
Take notes of your thoughts.
Think about and discuss the people who live or work in the setting.
Imagine a main character – perhaps one of the people in the photograph. What do they do? How do they get on with the other characters? What kind of a person are they?
