LO: To write your own wishing story

Today you will continue to write your own wishing story, where you are writing a section each day, using your plan to help you.


A suggested schedule for the writing is below:
  • Mon: Main characters in a safe, homely setting: one dreaming of a fortune or change.  
  • Tues: An object arrives with a ‘too good to be true’ promise or wish.  One character warns against, but the other character ignores the warning and makes a wish. Nothing happens. Yet!
  • Wed: Wish comes true but with unforeseen consequences. (This is the biggest section of your story)
  • Thurs: Character wants to use another wish to put things right, but the object has disappeared.


   3. Try to

  • Use the outside / inside opening to create an atmosphere or mood and have the weather hint at the terrible events that are coming;
  • Use words carefully to build up the picture you want to create of how the characters feel, what they do and what happens;
  • Use speech to show how the characters are opposite through what they say and what they do and feel as they speak.


  4.  Improve your draft as you go along, reading each section aloud, making 

       punctuation, spelling, grammar, word and paragraph edits.


   5.  Now, write your next section and edit it.


LO: To use imperial units of measurement

This is Year 5 lesson, but Year 6 are welcome to also do this work at home.  There are no separate Year 6 maths lessons this week.


Use the video to help you understand what to do and then have a go at the questions on the sheet, before marking your work.  Remember, they usually get harder as you work through them so do as many as you are able.  If I have found any supporting videos or games, then these have also been linked.

Watch the video and then read the facts about these and many other natural wonders.

Do you agree with the seven listed in the video? Which 'wonders' do you think should be in the top 7?

Find out where they are and label them on the map.
