Reading - Group 1
'Goodnight Mr Tom' by Michelle Magorian.
This week, we are reading chapter eighteen.
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:

This photograph was taken at the end of the war, on VE Day (Victory in Europe Day). It shows a group of people celebrating the end of the Second World war.
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.
Look at the photographs of the evacuees and the notes you made last week. Today, you are going to plan your story set during World War II and based on your chosen photograph. Your plan must be structured so that your story will have an opening (introducing the characters and the setting), a build-up, a problem, a resolution and an ending. You may use the story plan template below if you wish.
A NOTE ABOUT PARAGRAPHS - Paragraphs can indicate a change of place or time.
You will need at least one paragraph for each stage of your story.
You might link your paragraphs with adverbials of time. This will help to show the changes in time.
Today, you are going to write your own story set during World War 2, based on your plan and other notes you have made during this unit. It is important that you use historical details so that you clearly define the period in which your story is set.
CRITERIA TO BEAR IN MIND WHEN WRITING YOUR STORY:
Today, you are going to edit, improve and redraft your story.
Put yourself in teacher mode and re-read your whole story, deciding what improvements can be made. Look carefully - have you observed all the criteria above?
Once you have edited and improved your story, write in out again: the final draft. Share it with a member of your family. What do they think? Don’t forget you can also share your work on the blog!
(Weekly Focus: Interpreting charts and line graphs)
Follow these steps:
There are no expectations for you to hand in your work but you may want to share it on the school blog!
