Week beginning 19th October 2020

This week we will be looking at a different element of punctuation and grammar over four days.

As an extension children can write their own sentences, in relation to our topic of WW2, which contain examples of parenthesis.

Lesson 2: Relative Clauses

Look at the power point and then complete the activities.  Please make sure that you learn the 5 main relative pronouns which are that, who, whom, whose and which.  

Aim to complete pages 2 - 4 of the RelativeClauses2 pack.  You may have time for the cheeseburgers and other activities.

Finally, there's the mini quiz to have a go at but only if you have time.

Lesson 3: How to use colons

Follow the Powerpoint the complete the two worksheets. One worksheet requires you to include the missing punctuation and the second worksheet asks you to identify why a colon has been used. 


Rose Blanche: Week beginning -  5th October 2020

This week we will be reading the picture book Rose Blanche.  Rose is a German girl living during WWII.  Follow her story and the events she witnesses in her home town.  Write a series of diary entries detailing her excitement and feelings of pride when the war broke out and show how this changed as she realised the reality of war.

English:  Week Beginning 28th September



Today we will be looking at personification.  Personification is when authors and poets make inanimate objects (ones which aren't alive) behave as though they are humans or animals.  For example, "The clock in the hallway watched as the family rushed out late for school" or "The wind roared angrily as the Sun hid anxiously behind the clouds."


Look at the photo of the Spitfire plane which was used in WWII.  Can you write three sentences personifying its flight and battle for victory.



Look at the examples of children's poetry.  Read them carefully and highlight or underline examples of personification.

Choose good examples and make a note of these as they could be useful for your work later in the week.



Read the poem entitled, 'The Night of Death.'

Highlight any powerful language, similes and metaphors and examples of personification.

Write a short review, explaining what you understand and what you like about the poem.

Explain what techniques the poet has used - vocabulary; similes, personification, punctuation.


Write five similes and/or metaphors to describe The Blitz:

The planes were as loud as...

The buildings fell like..

The fire was...



Have a go at writing your own Blitz poem using the techniques we have looked at this week.  Present it ready for display by either word processing it and adding a picture or by practising joined and neat handwriting.
