English Work For Week 4 (27th April – 1st May)
English Aims For This Week:
LI: to punctuate direct speech correctly
Open Day 1 PowerPoint and read it through.
Open Day 1 Worksheet A and pick your challenge – answers are at the end.
Then, open Day 1 Worksheet B and pick your challenge (★=ch1, ★★=ch2, ★★★=ch3 – please note that ch3 should use indents, even if the answer doesn’t use them).
LI: to identify, order and discuss key events in a story
Create a timeline structure to plot the main events of the poem.
Ch1: use Day 2 Ch1 Help Sheet which has the different events muddled up. Put these in order and use these as your starting point – what other information can you add? Include some examples of speech (showing what a character might say at that point in the story). The correct order of the muddled up events are on p.2 for you to check.
Ch2: decide what you think are the main events (retell them in your own words), include some examples of speech (showing what a character might say at that point in the story) and use cohesive devices (e.g. time connectives)
Ch3: same as challenge 2 but also include some examples of setting description (including examples of figurative language)
Look at Day 2 Timeline WAGOLL to give you an idea of how this might look. In this example, the cohesive devices and setting description have been highlighted and the speech is in red, to make it really clear what we want to see. This example has separated the plot into 10 main events but yours might have slightly more or less, depending on how you separate them.
You can decide how to lay out your timeline – you can use Day 2 Timeline Example, create your own version which has the amount of boxes you need or draw a timeline directly onto a double page spread of your book.
Extension: draw a picture to illustrate each stage of your timeline.
LI: to infer information about characters from a text
Look through the poem again and make a list of the different characters.
What do we know about each of these characters? Read through the text and take notice of anything that gives description about any of the characters – if you have a printed version of the poem, you could highlight these as they will help you with today’s task.
In your book, list all the people who could have told King George’s men to come to the old inn (with their intention being to kill the highwayman), and for each, write why they might have done this. Once you’re done, check Day 3 Possible Answers – did you write down something similar? Maybe you thought of someone else or missed out someone on this list.
Open Day 3 Worksheet. You need to fill out the table for each character listed, showing what you know to be true, what you think is true and what you would like to know. Take a look at Day 3 Example to give you an idea of what to do.
Ch1: use Day 3 Ch1 Help Sheet to support you through each box.
Ch2/3: support some of your ideas with references to the text.
LI: to understand how to use colons and semi-colons
Go through Day 4 PPT – there is a lot of information to take in so have a quick body break part-way through if you need it and re-read any sections that you find tricky. Complete the quiz questions at the end.
Open Day 4 Worksheet 1 and pick your challenge (★=ch1, ★★=ch2, ★★★=ch3) –answers are at the end of the document.
Then, have a go at Day 4 Worksheet 2 – answers on second page.
