Good morning Willow Class.


LI – to plan a chapter of a story.

Task 1. Have a look at the words below; do you know what they mean?

scout, hollow, trotting, loomed, soundly, jaunt

Complete a chart like the one below (as you did on Monday):

Word What I think it means Dictionary Definition Synonyms

Use a dictionary to find the definitions.

Task 2. Now read Chapter 3 of the extract; you may wish to print it out if you can: https://www.lovereadin Karen-Inglis.html

Spot the vocabulary that you have been exploring. Think about the meaning of the words in the sentences in which they appear. What do you think is going to happen next? Will Tom and Stella find Harry? Where is the water coming from? Will they have an adventure? What will they find? Will they tell anyone or keep it a secret? Will the gardener catch them? If you can, discuss these questions with someone at home or otherwise, just think about them.

Task 3. You are going to plan the next chapter of the story today before writing your chapter tomorrow.

Consider the questions above. Think about the title of the book. How does this tie in with the story? How can you make your story exciting?

Plan your chapter using a method that you have used at school, e.g. a story mountain or a story board, etc. Please choose one of the templates below to help you plan your chapter. You can either print this out or copy it into your Home Learning Book.
