Good morning everyone and welcome to Friday’s home learning activities.
As last week I did not post the BBC Maths Challenge, have ago at last weeks. Follow the link below and have a go.
Using your design from yesterday, today you are going to write a short story based on your design. Think of your short story in three main parts.
Beginning – Character makes flying machine.
He/she tests it but it doesn’t quite work. Maybe it crashes!
Middle – Character finds some inspiration and makes alterations to the flying machine.
End – Flying machine works or doesn’t work!
Write some ideas/notes for each part.
Now write your short story. Remember to include some Year 3 sentence types/skills that you have learnt, e.g.
− use different conjunctions in your writing (e.g. when, although, since, before, after, until)
− use adverbs in your writing (e.g. carefully, happily, soon, silently, next)
− use inverted commas (speech marks) to show a character is speaking
− use prepositions (e.g. above, below, beneath, beyond, within, outside)
Decide if you are writing in first person (I) or third person (he/she). Make sure you keep it the same throughout the story.
Keep re-reading your story as you write to check it makes sense and you are happy with it. Check for spelling and punctuation too! I cant wait to see how your stories turn out, be sure to send them to me at [email protected]
Read this PowerPoint with lots of information about Anglo-Saxon Gods.
Create a poster which shows which gods you think are the most powerful or memorable.
In stilling time today I would like you to have a go at this GoNoodle activity.
