English

In English this week (Monday - Wednesday), we will be finishing our unit on Journalistic writing. Children will have lessons from Oak National Academy, as well as a spelling activity to do each day.

 

In Wednesday's lesson, children will have the opportunity to type up their completed news report onto the template provided. They will need to go back through their planning from previous lessons to find their headline and opening paragraph (11.2.21), recount of events paragraphs (24.2.21) and final paragraph (2.3.21).

 

On Thursday and Friday, we will be celebrating World Book Day, where children will be taking part in online workshops hosted by Scholastic.

 

Please also remember to read regularly throughout the week, including use of Read Theory.

English lesson

 

Learning objective: To write up newspaper report

 

Open up the template and type your news report into the columns (opening/recount section/final paragraph). Replace the existing headline with your own. Remember to indent/paragraph. 

It won't automatically move to the next column when you reach the end of one so you'll need to do this yourself. Feel free to edit this template if you wish; you may want to put a different picture and caption in as well. You will probably need to use quite a small font to fit this all in. Please choose a font that is legible and suitable for newspaper writing.

World Book Day

 

To celebrate World Book Day, Scholastic are hosting a series of live events for children in school and at home to take part in.

 

Today, we have chosen 2 live workshops for you to take part in. You can choose the one you'd prefer to do or even take part in both if you wish. 

 

The first is 'How to make everyone laugh' at 11am where you will be getting funny writing tips from Helen Rutter, who is the author of the acclaimed The Boy Who Made Everyone Laugh. Helen’s book is about a boy with a stammer who wants to be a comedian, and is sure to inspire empathy.
