Research on David Attenborough
We created titles for our biography on David Attenborough and then we used our iPads to start our research.
We looked at fact and opinions for our newspapers
Fact finding-Roman Gods and Goddesses
We are going to writing our own myth next week but we need Ed to find out more information about the Roman Gods and Goddesses to aid our writing.
We looked at The Quest by Aaron Becker and we pretended to be either the boy or girl in the story. We then wrote a diary entry from their point of view.
Using and understanding inverted commas
We looked at using inverted commas yesterday but became confused so in today’s lesson we had a selection of sentences with speech in and we had to identify which part was speech. We wrote the sentences out on the tables and used pasta as our inverted commas. We are now more confident in using inverted commas.
Matching words to the definitions
Setting description of Pompeii
A day in Pompeii
As part of our new topic, Romans, we read the book Escape from Pompeii. We discussed what it would have been like for the people and how they would have felt. We then watched the video-A day in Pompeii and created our own mind maps around what was happening, using the 5 senses to help create a picture of what it would have been like on the day.
We are finalising our brochures by making them more attractive and eye catching for the reader.
We have planned out how we would like our brochures to look and what we wanted to say. Then we started to create our brochures.
To make our holiday brochures more attractive and interest the reader we had a go at alliteration around certain pictures such as an elephant, pool and the beach.
Identifying features of a holiday brochure
We looked at a variety of holiday brochures and identified the features as we will be completing our own brochure, so keep your eyes peeled! We also magpied some words that we would to use in our own brochure.
Using commas in lists
In English today, we looked at how to use a comma in a list. We linked it to writing a letter. We used sentences starters such as: Thank you for, I loved seeing, and My favourite animals were.
Using the facts we gathered from the QR code and from our trip we created a non-chronological report about an African animal.
Using a QR code
We all choose our own animal that we would like to write a non chronological report about. We chose from a Lion, zebra, black rhino, crocodile, cheetah and elephant. We were then given a LO which contained a QR code. Using the QR code, we scanned the code using our iPad and then gathered facts to help write our report.
Sorting facts into the right box
We were given four different headings about elephants and then a selection of facts. In pairs we read the facts and then put them under the correct heading. This linked to our topic of writing a non-chronological report.
Identifying features of a newspaper
We have been looking at newspapers this week and we worked as a class to identify the features the previous day. In this lesson we worked in pairs and identified the features of a newspaper independently. We even got to write on the tables shh!!!
