Here are some alternative activities for Mrs Charmer's Group -Mermaids

English

LO: To collect quotations

1)  Read the prologue and zeppelin newspaper report from yesterday, again.

2)  Imagine you are a reporter trying to find out what happened when the zeppelin crashed.  You need to ask some witnesses about what they saw.  Think of some questions you could ask some 'witnesses' (it doesn't matter who they are at this point).  Use the document here as a guide to how to collect your questions.

3) 

  • Look at your question ideas.
  • Check you have used capital letters and question marks.
  • Choose four of your questions which will allow the 'witness' to say the most, and then use the sheet below (or write in books) to write the questions in the little rectangles.

4) Now, using what you know about the crash from reading the prologue, imagine what the witnesses could say when they answer your questions. Write their answers in the speech bubbles. 

 

Extension:To take this further, you could record a little play with the witnesses being asked the questions to answer.  Or, you could use toys as puppets to 'act' it out!

English Lesson #2

LO: To write quotations

1)  Look at the synonyms for said, on the document below - some sound like they are from  story while some sound far more formal.  Which ones do you think would be most likely to be used in a newspaper report?  

2)  Read the example of a quotation from a witness who saw the zeppelin crash.  There are different ways you could rewrite this quotation, without changing the witness's words.  Look at the second document below to see some different ways they can be written.

3)  Now, watch this video of a witness statement and choose part of it to write down as a quotation. 

 

Now, what are 4 different ways you could write it? 

Use the examples from the second document above, to help you with structure and punctuation.
