Literacy - Writing Fiction
Monday - Katie In London
In this lesson, you will hear the story of Katie in London, a little girl who goes on a big adventure in a big city. You will need a piece of paper and a pencil
Tuesday - Story Mapping
Now is the time for us to commit our story of Katie in London to memory. We are going to be drawing a story map to help us to do this. You will need a piece of paper and a pencil.
Wednesday - Proper Nouns
When Katie is in London, she visits lots of special places. In this lesson, we are going to be learning about using capital letters for names so that we can write the names of the places Katie visits accurately, later on in the week. You will need a piece of paper and a pencil.
Thursday - Starting a story
Finally, it is time to write our stories. You will need your story map that we did in lesson 2 so that you can remember exactly what happens. You will also need a piece of lined paper and a pencil.
Friday - Continue to write your story
Today, we will finish off writing our story and take some time to edit it to ensure that it is the best that it can be. You will need your story map, the writing that you did yesterday and a pencil.
Exploring tints and shades
Today we will be studying a spectacular artist called Wassily Kandinsky. He was a Russian artist known for using lots of colours and shapes in his artwork. We will be recreating our own Kandinsky-inspired artwork. You will need some paints or colouring pencils for today’s lesson.
Lesson 1 - Healthy Hugs
In today’s lesson, we will be helping ‘Rosie the Ragdoll’ learn a different way of meeting and greeting her friends during COVID-19 without touching each other. We will begin by recognising and understanding different non-verbal gestures to communicate. From this, we will practise communicating a positive message through gestures. By the end, we will have a sequence of gestures to share with our friends and an alternative way for Rosie to greet her friends, where she can still connect with her friends but in a safer manner.
Lesson 2 - We're part of the same pond
In today’s lesson, we will gain a better understanding of what social distancing means and the importance of it, especially relating to the reopening of schools. We will listen to a story that explains the need for space and how it helps to keep us safe within the current climate.
In today's lesson, we are going to be thinking about all of the different ways that we can travel from one place to another. We are going to have a go at being different modes of transport, before putting our actions together with the song A Big Red Bus to finish at the end.
