Writing

Week beginning 18th May 2020

 

This week we would like you to have a go at creating your own play script. At the beginning of the Spring Term, you began to learn how to write a play script using narrative from The Eye of the Wolf.

 

If you have forgotten the features needed, take a look at the PP presentation below along with the display poster. You can then use the template to begin to record your own ideas. Don't forget to use the checklist to ensure that you have used all the necessary features. 

 

You can make your script as long or short as you feel confident to. You might want to base your script on a page from your favourite book or you might want to be creative and create your own. It’s completely up to you. Just remember to have fun with it!

 

Why not use your script to create your own performance at the end of the week and ask your family members to join in. laugh

Week beginning 11th May 2020

 

This week your writing challenge is to produce a set of instructions. Instructions tell us how to do something and there are many different types of instructions.

 

Below you will find a Powerpoint and Checklist which details all the features you need to include to create an effective set of instructions. You will also find two example texts; How to feed a baby (a simpler structure) and Starshine City (a more detailed structure). You may choose to use these to form the basis of your own instructions or use one of the writing templates provided or even just create your own.

 

Imperative verbs (sometimes known as bossy words) are a key feature of instructions texts. They are action words e.g. chop, kick, plant, dry. If you would like more information and examples of imperative verbs, please see the Imperative verbs Powerpoint and Imperative Verbs Word Mat provided. You should also include time conjunctions to help order your instructions e.g. First, Then, Next After that along with conjunctions to add more detail to your sentences e.g. then, while, because.

 

Good luck and have fun with it!

Week beginning 4th May 2020

 

In today's world it is so easy to stay in contact with people. There is email, text, phone call, face time however there is nothing quite as personal as receiving a handwritten letter from someone. There are certain layouts and features that we traditionally use in letter writing. This week, I would like you to plan, edit and write a letter to someone you know. Maybe at the end of the week you could post it as a surprise to cheer that person up during lock down. Below find all the information you need to start creating your own letter.

If you are struggling to think of someone to write a letter to why not look at the letter we received below. If you would like to write a letter to the Arden Lodge Care Home, please click on the Write a letter to Arden Lodge document below to see exactly what you need to include and where to post it to.

This week we would like you to each day build upon your knowledge and skills in creating News paper reports. Below you will find examples of Newspaper reports. Begin by looking at the style of writing, the features included and begin to consider how you will use these in your own article. Then use the planning sheet to begin to form your ideas and finally use the template to create your final piece. 

 

Your article can be based on past events, current events or you can simply create an event of your own....have fun with it!
