English Week Beginning 20.9.21
This week we are continuing to learn about Adventure stories, building up to writing our own Stone Age adventure story.
Today is about summarising.
Cast your mind back to the story of the stone age boy. Watch the video below to remind you of the story.
Can you use the story mountain template below to summarise only the Introduction and build-up of the story. Leave the other sections blank, we will be filling these in across the week.
Have a go at using your plan of the introduction and build up to write your own introduction (in more detail than the book).
Think about describing the setting and characters.
Can you use third person vocabulary (she, her, he, him, they, them, herself, hers, himself, his, themselves, their, theirs)?
Today we will be following on our story mountains, mapping the ‘middle/ problem / adventure’ in our story of the stone age boy.
Spend 5-10minutes summarising the problem before having a go at drafting your own part that follows on from yesterday (using your plan to help you).
Consider the characters actions, what adventure is happening and how the character responds to the situation. Use your 5 senses to add detail and description as you write.
Continue writing in third person, using: She, her, he, him, they, them, herself, hers, himself, his, themselves, their, theirs
You may find that you are ready to write about how the problem gets solved, but go no further than this. (not the ending today).
Today, we will complete the last part of our story mountains (the resolution and ending).
Look at the short extracts below. These are some examples of endings to two different adventure stories.
Can you write your own ending using some inspiration from the examples you’ve looked at.
What’s around them/ is it changing?
What are they doing? How has this changed because of the action/ adventure?
The problem/ action should have come to an end?
How is the character responding to this?
How will it be concluded?
Challenge: Read your work back to yourself. What needs editing? Do you have a different colour pen to edit your work?
Today we are going to be creating our own story with the title ‘The adventures of Om in 2021’
What does this title suggest will happen to Om? How does she end up in 2021? What will she do? What will she discover?
Mind-map your ideas or put a plan onto a new story mountain.
Print out another copy of the story map from Monday.Put your prediction / ideas onto a story mountain plan
Today is an independent write.
Talk through your plan with an adult to refresh your memory.
Find a quiet space to write and use your plan to write your adventure story ‘The adventures of Om in 2021’
Maths Week Beginning 20.9.21
This week we are continuing our work on place value, how 3 digit numbers are made up of 100s, 10s and 1s. There are 3 challenges for each day, a starter challenge, regular and extra challenge. Choose which level you feel more comfortable with but do try to challenge your self.
Today we are learning to find 1,10 or 100 more/less than a given number using pictorial representations. Look at the pictorial representations on the sheet(there is no need to print). Draw your own representation of the images or use lego or other small toys to represent 100s, 10s and 1s. Add ten more. What happens to the tens part of the number? Now go back to the original number and take a ten away. What happens to the tens part now? Repeat looking at what happens when you add or subtract 100 or 1.
Your task today is to use < => to compare pictorial representations of numbers. Look carefully at the hundreds, tens and ones. Which number is greater>, smaller< or are they equal=. Don't forget there is no need to print the sheets , you can draw the representations to record your answers. Remember to use anything at home like lego or pasta to represent the 100s, 10s and 1s.
We will be comparing numbers again today, using < > =. It is important that you look at the 100s first. If they are the same, look at the 10's. If the 10s are the same look at the 1s. Remember you can make the numbers and draw them to help you.
Today we are going to order numbers in ascending order from the smallest to the greatest. It is important to look at the 100s first, then the 10's, then the 1s.
We will be learning to count in multiples of 50. Watchhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywOKPqFUyCA (Counting in 50s song) Practise counting in 50s forwards and backwards.
Ask an adult to help you if you are stuck. Now have a go at recording a number line counting in 50's. Can you see a link with the 5 times table?
