School Closure - English

Welcome to the start of this half term. This half term's topic is Scrumdiddlyumptious which is all about FOOD so our English lessons are all going to be based around that. We hope you enjoy!

Above is this week's English work.  You are looking at all different signs and slogans this week.  Follow through the powerpoints and complete the work in your books.  As always, if you have any further questions, please do no hesitate to contact your teacher.

 

Remember the guided reading is further down this page - Evie in the Jungle - for the whole half-term.

 

Directly below this is our SPAG work on inverted commas this week.  Please work through the powerpoint (each section has been split into separate days) with coordinating worksheets.

Above is this week's English work.  You are learning how to write an email.  Follow through the powerpoints and have a talk with your parents/guardians about email safety.  As always, if you have any further questions, please do no hesitate to contact your teacher.

 

Remember the guided reading is further down this page - Evie in the Jungle - for the whole half-term.

 

Directly below this is our SPAG work on apostrophes this week.  Please work through the powerpoint in your own time, BBC website links before completing the worksheets.  One booklet has teachings in followed by activities, the second is worksheets only.

Above are the Guided Reading questions and books.  You do not need to read it all this week, it is for the whole of the half-term.  There are questions on the powerpoint to look at before you read a part of the book and then some for afterwards.  Look at the questions first, read the questions and then read the correlating part of the book.  I would suggest completing one or two sets of questions a day.

 

If you need any help or more guidance, see the guidance above the book and questions or contact your teacher.

Above is this week's English work.  We are pretending to be older people and writing our own autobiographies.  You will need to pretend to have been born in the 1920s - 1940s and write as if you were an 80-100 year old and talk about the changes that you have notice about Southend over the years.  Work through the powerpoints, one day at a time and complete the work.  There are examples of what you are required to work for you to look at, but not copy.

 

Below is some SPAG work which will need to be completed alongside this as it will help you set your autobiography out correctly.

 

Please send across pictures of your autobiographies when you have finished as we would love to read them!  Any questions, please speak to your teacher.

Above is this weeks SPAG work for you.  Work through the powerpoint, one piece of work/activity a day and complete the relevant worksheets.  It is really important to learn how to use paragraphs properly and you will need to specifically write in paragraphs as part of your this week's English work too!  Parent's please be aware that on the second page of some of the activities are the answers.

 

There is a video here which may help: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvwwxnb/articles/z9n73k7

 

Any questions, please message your teacher.

Above is this week's English work and this week is all about poems.  You will start by looking at a poem and then developing your own one.  There are examples of what is required on each powerpoint and work has been set out into daily tasks.  As always, if you need any further guidance or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact your teacher.

Urban Pioneers Week 1 - W.B. 20.04.2020

We live in an urban area.  An urban area is the region surrounding a city. Most inhabitants of urban areas have non-agricultural jobs. Urban areas are very developed, meaning there is a density of human structures such as houses, commercial buildings, roads, bridges, and railways. "Urban area" can refer to towns, cities, and suburbs.

 

This week, please do some research into Southend.  How has the town changed over the years?  What attracts people to visit Southend?  Using Google Maps, look at pictures of the Southend area.  What can you see?  Where would you recommend people to go?  Gather some information and then write a leaflet all about the area and a guide for key areas visitors should see.  If you do it on the computer, you could add in photos too.  Why not search different leaflets online to give yourself ideas of what to include.

 

Remember the key features of a leaflet are.  Look at this video for the key features: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zkgcwmn/articles/zrjqpg8. You will need to use persuasive write, a range of punctuation, technical vocabulary.  Don't forget your adjectives, adverbs, modal verbs, generalisers and conditional tense.

 

Please contact your teacher if you need any help!  There is a leaflet template below if you should need it.
