Tuesday

Literacy

 Class two online literacy lesson.

-      Watch the video on non- chronological reports https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks1-ks2-how-to-write-a-non-chronological-report/zvbtscw

-      Consider:

  • What are the key points of the video?
  • What might you include in your non-chronological report?

-      Read through the attached non-chronological report. Use a highlighter and your checklist to annotate the non-chronological report.

-      Drawing inspiration from the example non- chronological report, create a spidergram ( mind map)  to plan out your non-chronological report on dragons. In the centre circle you need to write ‘dragons’. In the smaller circle you should write your headings- these should be the labels of your dragon’s body parts. On the lines coming out from your headings you will need to write your brief ideas of what will come underneath your heading.

Wednesday

Literacy

Class two Wednesday online literacy lesson.

Watch the video on what an introduction needs to include. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6BTfNQiXXI

Consider:

-          What have you seen in introductions before?

-          What needs to go in an introduction?

-          How long is an introduction meant to be?

-          Where should an introduction go in a piece of text?

Use what you have learnt from the video to annotate the example introduction. Think about what is good about the introduction, does it meet all the criteria for an introduction and what could be improved.

Write your own introduction in the template. 

Afterwards continue to write your non-chronological report. Remember to use your word mats, checklists and previous work to help you.

Worksheet

Thursday

Literacy

Class two Thursday online literacy lesson.

Watch the video on subordinating conjunctions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FK2Gyto5gTQ

Consider:

-          Have you used subordinating conjunctions before?

-          When can subordinating conjunctions be useful?

-          Is ‘however’ always a subordinating conjunction? No, it is only a subordinating conjunction when it is joining two clauses together.

-          What is a clause? It is two statements which stand independently.

Complete the worksheet on subordinating conjunctions. Please go through and highlight the subordinate conjunctions. Remember that subordinate conjunctions don’t always come in the middle of sentences.

Watch out for questions 2,5,8 and 10 because they are tricky!

Afterwards, ask the children to create a poster to help them remember ‘AWHITEBUS’. You can use the example poster to help you, but I would love to see your creativity!

 A - Although, After, As

WH – When

I – If

T – That

E – Even though

B – Because

U – Until, Unless

S – Since
