English Work For Week 7 (18th – 22nd May)
English Aims For This Week:
to enjoy Health and Fitness themed English!
All English activities this week have a different health and fitness theme- from Olympic events and athletes to sports stars and healthy recipe writing. Apart from the reading comprehension on Day 2, there are no challenge levels to choose from this week but more of a selection of open-ended tasks. We hope you enjoy them!
Day 1: Publish your ‘Wanted’ poster
FINISHED THIS? Have a go at this Day 1 Olympics themed crossword! Open the Day 1 Olympic Crossword Clues to help you.
HEALTHY EATING: Over the coming week, make a healthy snack for you and your family to enjoy.
Take a look at the following link for some recipe ideas:
**Remember to discuss this with an adult first and if any cooking is required, you must do this with them**
On Friday, we would like you to show someone how to make this healthy snack by writing out the recipe.
Try and take a photo of the final product and use it in your instruction writing on Friday!
Day 2: What is it like to be an Olympic athlete? Reading Comprehension
ERIC warm up (ERIC = Explain Retrieve Interpret Choice) start by watching this clip about Usain Bolt https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6b03jWW70kc and then answer these questions in your Home Learning book (open Day 2 Usain Bolt ERIC warm up)

As you open your chosen athlete’s pack, you will find a one, two or three star challenge. Choose the right one for you (answers can be found after each star challenge).

Day 4: Tell us about your favourite sportsperson! (Part 2)
Using your notes from yesterday and the key headings, we would like you to present your information about your favourite sports personality in one of the following ways:
Remember that this is an information text (our recent non-chronological report was an example of this) and whichever format you choose, think carefully about the features that you would need to include: title, subheadings, majority written in the past tense, 3rd person (he/she), adverbials to link sentences.
Day 5: Healthy Snack Instructions writing
For an example of detailed recipe instructions, open Day 5 Healthy Banana Bread Recipe IINSTRUCTIONS WAGOLL.
