Find the link to the OneNote page below, or read the webpage for the same information.

Above is a link to listen to our book being read online. It will be important to listen to this before every session to ensure you have a good knowledge of the themes of the story and can recognise the different story sections.

 

See below for a story map:

 

Session 1:

 

 

For session 1, you need to try to create your own story map (see above). This will allow you to write the 5 different sections of the story:

 

- Opening

- Build-up

- Problem

- Resolution

- Ending

 

 

You will need to listen to the book being read and try to identify where the 5 different story sections are happening. Use my model to help you.

Session 2:

 

For session 2, you will be writing the opening section of your narrative, based on 'The Invisible'. This happens from pages 1-6 in the book, to help you.

 

Make sure to read through the PowerPoint, which has my example of an opening to guide you.

 

Notice how I have considered the individual pages of the story. I have thought about the different themes that each page has to offer and made sure to expand on them a little further.

Session 3:

 

For session 3, you will be writing the build-up of your narrative based on 'The Invisible'. This happens from pages 7 - 12 in the book, to help you.

 

Make sure to look at the 'slow writing' PowerPoint. You will be using inspiration from my sentences to help you to create your own. We will be building-up a build-up together!

 

Can you consider which words or phrases that you have particularly liked? How are they effective?

Session 4:

 

For session 4, you will be writing the problem of your story. This happens from pages 13-16 in the book, to help you.

 

Make sure to put into practise what we have done so far this week. Deconstruct each page of the book to help you write about the specific themes in further detail. 

 

Make sure to try to include dialogue in this section, if you haven't already done so.

Session 5:

 

For session 5, you will be writing the resolution and ending to your narrative. The resolution happens from pages 17-22 in the book, to help you.

 

Make sure to put into practise what we have done so far this week. Deconstruct each page of the book to help you write about the specific themes in further detail. 

 

Make sure to try to include dialogue in this section, if you haven't already done so.

 

 

To complete your narrative, write it out in best. You may want to publish it, too! 

Maths:

 

 

Ratio and Proportion

 

This week, we are going to cover the Ratio and Proportion Unit. This unit is only a week long, is relatively easier to access at home and moves our learning forward.

 

Find a link to the OneNote page below. You may also wish to read through any of the previous lessons from the lockdown period, as these are still available.

 

Maths  (Web view)

 

Below, please find a PDF document which has scanned pages of the children's Power Maths books for this unit. I will be asking the children to access and complete specific questions from this document.

Your children will need their login details, which they should hopefully have. If not, then please email me. The school code, should it be required, is 'tclr'.

Above is a link for the Spelling Frame activities which apply this week's spellings.

 

Below is a link for the spellings for all three groups. A reminder that some children have a differentiated list according to whether specific rules need to be re-addressed.

Times Tables:

 

The order I will be assessing the children is as follows:

 

2x, 5x, 10x, 4x, 8x, 3x, 6x, 9x, 11x, 12x, 7x

 

They will then move onto mixed questioning, followed by division facts.

 

If you would like to follow the same format, then you can practise the times table that your child is being assessed on/practising to learn at home.

 

Please can you also ensure that your child is reading at least 10 minutes a day. Ensure they are discussing, interpreting and questioning the language of the text with you.
