Wednesday 20th May

Hi Everyone

Hope you are okay today.

Here is the work for Wednesday.

We are starting by reading this weeks version of First News

First Session - Spelling and Grammar

Today we are looking at spellings with the prefix pro ( pro means forward or for ) Please take the next five words ( profession, prototype, proposition, programme and prospective ) Learn what they mean and how to spell them. Write each word in a sentence and put it in your exercise book.

Today we are learning about Homophones and paragraphs. Click below. Watch the videos and do activity one and two. If you want to challenge yourself further, you can do exercise three. please put in your exercise book.

 

Second Session

Today we are going to start by watching this clip of passengers boarding the ship, taken from the 1997 film Titanic :

( Note : Although the film has a 12 certificate, this clip is age appropriate )

Watch again - pausing at key points as you watch, and jot down words or phrases for the things you can see and hear in the clip, such as :

cars arriving, crowds of people, third - class passengers having a health inspection and the ship's horn.

Now go back and improve your words and phrases for example, 'cars arriving' may become 'luxurious cars arrived on the dock' and ' crowds of people' may become ' the crowds of people were like a swarm of ants '

 

You may want to click on wordhippo to improve your vocabulary.

Once you have improved your sentences, have a go at writing this scene in narrative form. Imagine this scene is for a new opening of a story about Titanic. Write the opening to the story retelling this scene. don't forget to include the words and phrases you have written.

You can select whether your opening is written in first person,' As I arrived, I saw Titanic for this first time ' or third person' As Character name ( you choose your character ) arrived, she / he saw Titanic for the first time.'

 

Make sure you continue to proof - read your work as you write, checking for spelling and punctuation.
