Charles Dickens - research for non-chronological reports
Charles Dickens - We have been learning about Charles Dickens this term. We have researched facts about his life, watched video biographies, read information and collected notes, created timelines of his life, formed questions about him for each other to answer on the Padlet, written and performed interviews in role and written summaries or storyboards of some of his most famous work. Look at the photos, files and videos below to see what we have been doing!
Look at this brilliant example of a Charles Dickens role-play interview. It demonstrates the Charles Dickens knowledge learning taking place. Well done!
Spelling - We are continuing our weekly spelling journal work during home-learning, uploading our spelling test results to the Padlet each week.
This week we have been writing innovations of Pie Corbett’s story, The Old Mill. We had lots of fun changing nouns, verbs, adverbs and adjectives and creating a different mood with our word choices.
We used an animated walk through a deserted Whitby Abbey to inspire our writing. We made story maps of our 'journey' and learned about figurative language, creating suspense, sentence openers, powerful description and paragraphs before we wrote suspenseful setting narratives.
We used books we have read, to help us create an advert for a house. Some of us designed our houses using drawing and construction, while some of us wrote Estate Agent adverts.
We have been exploring how we can use our inference skills to find out how a character is feeling.
