Week 7 (18.05.20 - 22.05.20)

English

This week our focus writing genre is Stories set in familiar places. 

 

By the end of this week, you will have completed your writing mission: to write a short story based on the short film, 'Belly Flop'. (Watch the short film below.)

 

On Monday, you are going to read a short story and answer some questions about it. Remember to use the text and what you have read to help you - you don't need to remember all of the answers, just find them in the text!

 

On Tuesday, you are going to learn about speech and how to use it correctly in your writing. There are some interactive activities and information for you to use and look at on BBC Bitesize that will help you with your learning and then some activities for you to complete. 

 

On Wednesday, you are going to use your learning from Tuesday to write some speech sentences to go with some images from the short film, 'Belly Flop'. 

 

On Thursday, you will be planning your short story.  

 

On Friday, you will be writing your short story.
