English Work For Week 3 (20th – 24th April)
English Aims For This Week:
Don’t forget to write the L.I. and long date at the start of each English piece of work in your home school learning book.
LI: to accurately use relative clauses, such as: who, which, where, when, whose, that or an omitted relative pronoun
Check out Max and Harvey singing about relative clauses: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-english-relative-clauses-with-max-harvey/z4ndvk7
Read both pages of Monday Info Sheet.
Look at the Monday worksheet:
LI: to read The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes and annotate the text with key features and infer suggested meanings
Open Tuesday Book Cover and spend some time looking at the cover of this narrative poem.
Jot down the answers to the following questions in your home learning book:
Open Tuesday Worksheet which shows the first two pages of the poem. Read the text a few times to yourself or to an adult and then listen to Miss Taylor reading it aloud by clicking on the following link: https://youtu.be/UELt6z3yENA – read the text whilst you listen to it being read aloud.
Using a dictionary and google images to help you annotate these the text on the worksheet. Think about the following:
Have a quick glance at Tuesday WAGOLL to give you an idea of what we are looking for and then you can look at this again once you have finished to see if you came up with similar things.
Extension: draw your version of what you think the highwayman looks like.
Open The Highwayman, by Alfred Noyes to read the rest of the poem and then listen to your Year 5 teachers reading the whole poem of The Highwayman:

LI: to create a glossary for The Highwayman
Open Wednesday The Highwayman poem – you will need to keep this with you when you watch the following video as some verses don’t appear on the clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryu1JZiSbHo stop at the following points to read the verses on your copy (in yellow) and then continue watching video:
If you would like you, you could also listen to the video you watched yesterday of your teachers reading the poem aloud.
Look at your work from yesterday – what words did you learn? Today you are going to create a glossary for the rest of the poem.
Open Wednesday Worksheet and use a dictionary (online dictionaries are fine too) to find out the definitions of the highlighted words. You will need to consider the context of the text (e.g. “harry” is a boy’s name but this isn’t the correct definition of the word used in this context – so think carefully!
If this is too tricky, use the Wednesday Ch1 Help Sheet which has the muddled-up definitions – try to work out which one goes where.
See if you came up with a glossary which is similar to Wednesday Answers.
LI: to identify similes and metaphors within the poem
Recap similes and metaphors using Thursday PowerPoint.
Open The Highwayman, by Alfred Noyes to read The Highwayman again and see how many metaphors and similes you can spot in the narrative poetry. You could print a copy of this and underline/highlight them on the page if you find this helpful – but you don’t have to.
Draw a line down the middle of your page – one side for similes & one side for metaphors like the example to the right. Note down your examples on each side.
Challenge 1: Work with an adult to find examples
Challenge 2/3: Find as many examples as possible, aiming for at least 5 of each.
Once you think you have found them all, open Thursday WAGOLL at the end and see how many of these you found. Well done if you found any others!
LI: to summarise the main ideas drawn from a text
Open Friday 5 PPT and find out more about what Summarising Sheba does.
Open Friday Worksheet (make sure you view in slideshow mode) and complete the ‘Three Friends’ Comprehension task. The answers are at the end of the document.
Extension challenge: summarise the story of the Highwayman to someone in your house or maybe call a relative and summarise it to them!
