Mon - Please watch a teaching video which will be posted on class story.
Talk about what happened at the end of the No-Bot story. He left his arm at the park! What might happen next? Create a mind map of different characters (like last week), but using Bernards arm this time instead of his bottom.
Tue - Please watch a teaching video which will be posted on class story.Using your ideas from yesterday create a new story map for the next part of the story– think about where he will end up finding his arm in the end. Will there be another twist right at the end of your story? Draw your own story map about what happens next to Bernard, and then retell the story to someone using the map.
Wed - Please watch a teaching video which will be posted on the class story.Today we are going to start making our own book! Using a template for a book (folded A4 paper) children can add their pictures to the book. Use their story map from yesterday and spend time creating clear detailed pictures. Make sure the pictures are in the correct order. We are the illustrator today!

Today we will start to add the writing to our book. Look carefully at the pictures you drew so you know what to write underneath. Say the sentence out loud before writing it.
What different punctuation will you use in your story? Full stop. Exclamation Mark. Question Mark. Speech marks. Remember your sentence toolkit.Children may not complete all of the writing in one day. Do as much as they can today.

Finishing touches – finish any writing that you have left to do. Create your front cover, what title will we give our story. Is it still called No-Bot? Why was it called No-Bot, Bernard is a robot, bot is short for bottom, he has no bottom, No-Bot! But in your story he has no arm! Could you think of a new title and draw a front cover that is exciting for the reader. Remember, you are the author! So make sure your name is on the front cover too, just like Sue Hendra.
