English Work For Week 5 (4th – 7th May)
English Aims For This Week:
LI: to plan a narrative about what happens to Tim in the poem
Open http://www.northsomersetteachersbookaward.com/blog/2016/3/21/nnnsvy3w20cl2c9nnhbbzqdu3f6qvy and scroll down to the second image – read this extract of the poem and look at the illustration of Tim.
Go through Tim the ostler PowerPoint.
Today’s task: plan a narrative about what happens to Tim during the poem.
LI: to write the first draft of a narrative (about Tim the ostler)
Take a look at the RUBRIC – if you can, print it, cut it out and stick it into your book, underneath your date and LI (you can stick it in as a flap if you prefer). Spend some time reading it and pick your challenge. Don’t forget to look at the checklist – you all need to do this! You may want to look at SPaG Recap to remind you of the rules surrounding relative clauses, speech punctuation and colons & semi-colons.
Begin writing your narrative, writing on every other line – (write no more than 2 and a half pages double spaced).
LI: to write the first draft of a narrative (about Tim the ostler)…continued
Mid-point check: are you remembering to look at and include things in the RUBRIC? Take note of anything you haven’t done yet and consider where you could add them/plan to use them.
Continue writing your narrative – remember, write no more than 2 and a half pages double spaced).
LI: to edit and proof read my narrative
Open Editing and Proofing Checklist to help you with your editing and proofing. Remember to refer to your RUBRIC too – if you have missed anything out, now is the time to edit it in. Can you move up a level on any of the rows – what do you need to add in?
Remember do your purple polishing neatly, on the lines you left in between your writing – if you don’t have a purple pen, use a different colour (e.g. a blue biro) instead. If you need more room, use numbered asterisks (e.g. 1*) and write it on your next page. Remember, you can make use of perfect paragraph flaps if you need to re-write a larger section.
Once you think you have finished, give it one final read through. Perhaps you could ask an adult to read it through with you too – can they spot anything that could be improved?
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
