18.06.2020 - Slow Writing – Pandora Word Bank.
Today, I’d like you to watch the Pandora clip and fill in the word bank I have created in readiness for your slow writing tomorrow, and your story next week.

 

Please take your time to build up this word bank, and consider very careful vocabulary choices to stretch yourself further. Remember, on the 'English Help Sheets' section, there is a dictionary link and X2 different thesaurus links, as well as word banks and phrase sheets

17.06.2020 - Slow Writing: The Rocket Take Off.

We’ve used the Slow Writing Grids before many times within lessons, so hopefully it will be a really useful tool to help you build your story over the next couple of weeks.

Remember, you add one feature per box (try to include a range of features), and then follow this skeleton for building a paragraph.

 

I’d like you to watch the CLIP from the Tim Peake rocket launch a few years ago (some of you may remember watching this at school).

 

Read through the 'descriptive writing examples', and then write 1-2 paragraphs about an astronaut taking off on a mission to space. The paragraph/s you build today will help form the opening to your story next week.

16.06.2020 - Using Fronted Adverbials – BBC Lesson

Today, I'd like you to follow another BBC lesson, as the learning follows on from yesterday's lesson well.

The techniques learned over today and yesterday will also be very helpful when writing your stories, so make sure you take time to practise these skills!

 

I have uploaded the necessary PDF documents below so you can have them open ready.

15.06.2020 - BBC Bitesize Lesson – Setting and Subordinating Conjunctions.

I’ve saved the worksheets for the tasks on the link and uploaded them below. Make sure you open them before hand so you are ready to use them when the web-page states. Complete any tasks in your work book so you can refer back to them later in the week.

 

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to look at Story Writing, but using slow writing grids to help you focus on what you are writing.

 

We have covered instructions on how to build a rocket, holiday brochures on a new planet destination, and poetry - looking at description and detail. So, hopefully you have a really good starting ground to build an idea for a space themes story upon.
 

There will be a range of tasks for you to complete, and then next week you will be tasked with planning your own story based on the learning you have progressed through. :)
