As always, use the power point to help you. This week I have spoken to you on the power point, so you should be able to complete this task independently (without your adult). I have also attached a word search and a look, cover, write sheet to help you.

Writing and SPaG– Last week we recapped on our understanding of poetry. We are continuing this work by recapping on our SPaG features as well as delving into narrative poetry. There are lots of tasks as you work through on the power point I have created, the last task will get you ready for writing your own narrative poem next week, so make sure you listen to the end. As always complete as many of the tasks that you want to or are able to.

Reading - When you complete your home reads this week, please use the following questions to help you explore your reading further:

If you were the main character, how would you have reacted?

What do you think this character would think?

Are there any other reasons why this might have happened?

Have the views in this text affected your opinion? Why? How?

I hope you enjoy these activities and remember we always love to see the work you produce, even if you don’t want it adding to the blog!

Have another wonderful week!
