Welcome back Fox Class! I hope you were all able to have a lovely Easter Break enjoying the sunshine!
When you first came to my class in September, you may be able to remember the Jane Goodall work that was displayed in the 'Fox Class Hall of Fame' from the previous Year Group. Now it's your turn to research this wonderful and inspirational lady, and produce something similar! :)
Friday Activity – Make a cartoon strip about a fun and exciting activity that you did in the Easter Holidays!
Make your drawings neat and colourful! Add speech and/or text to each box (ensuring you’ve drawn your boxes with a pencil and ruler!)
See the Comic Strip Examples PowerPoint
This Week's SPELLINGS, as well as the tasks uploaded below:
Open the Biography Planning Sheet and have a look at the different sections that you will need to plan for your next piece of writing.
Write each sub-heading in your workbook (one at a time) and fill in your plan.
Make sure you use:
The learning from this week
The Jane Goodall research from your Topic Task
And any of the English Help Sheets that you think might be useful.
Read through the Jane Goodall PowerPoint to refresh your memory about this famous scientist.
Then, have a read through the Opening Title HOOK Examples and complete the First TASK that is written on the sheet.
Your Second TASK is to read through the 3 Opening Hook Examples (these are examples of opening paragraphs that will begin your biography, but will be written underneath your opening title).
Once you have read through these examples, have a go at writing your own opening paragraph. Just remember though, it MUST be catchy and over the top so your reader wants to continue reading your biography. Don’t add too many facts however, be creative with your writing, as you want to save most of your facts for the main body.
The Analysis of Biographies – Have a read through the X4 biography examples and find as many features of a biography as you can.
Work through the checklist, and write the first feature you have found in the margin in your work book. Then write 1 to 2 examples of this feature from the example texts.REPEAT this for each feature you find, making sure you have shown a range of examples using each of the four texts you that you have read.
Much similar to the Reading Comprehension you completed for Anne Frank, please can you remember the following when writing your answers down in your workbooks:
(Keep your eye out tomorrow morning for the answers to this comprehension.)
