Movie Review

 

We would like you to review your favourite movie using all of your writing skills.

It can be a recent film or an older one ( must be appropriate ) and use all of your descriptive and persuasive language to tell others why it is the best.

There is a checklist below that will help and some examples to help guide you.

You can present this anyway that you like.

 

Look forward to seeing them.

 

 

Non-Chronological report 

You are going to create a non-chronological report about a mythical creature. A mythical creature is an imaginary creature which is usually a combination of animal and human features.

 

For your task, we would like you to create your own mythical create. It can be as weird and as wonderful as you like J.

Once you have thought of and created your own mythical creature we would like you to explain:

  • Diet
  • Habitat (where it lives and why it lives there)
  • Prey (what is likes to eat)
  • Appearance (What it looks like. Great opportunity to use some wonderful adjectives or expanded noun phrases)
  • Weird and Wonderful facts (What makes the creature so special)
  • Special Powers

(no copy and pasting from Google!)

 

Use different layouts or formats to create text boxes, shapes and diagrams on the computer or you might want to do it on paper using pens, paper and coloured card to make it look great and stand out!!

 

Here are some examples of different non-chronological reports about animals to help you.

What will you potion make people be......? 

 

With some of you completing the a story about Professor Plum... I thought we could think about a potion we could create!

 

To create this potion we need to know:

  • The ingredients - You can use anything!
  • How it is made
  • What special power it may be able to create 
  • Who the potion may be suitable for (family member, footballer, character from a TV show or book or maybe from the story you have just written?)

 

We can't wait to see them smiley

Tell us a story...

 

During your time in year 4, we have noticed how much you love writing stories and we love to read them! This week, we want to go on an adventure and write a story. We have started it off for you but where may your story go? What may the character do? Will there be a problem in the story? How will the problem be resolved?

 

 

Story starter!

Professor Plum had been locked away in his laboratory for days now, barely even stopping to eat or drink.  He rested his left arm on the dusty pile of books scattered across his desk, and with his right hand he gently flicked the conical flask in front of him. The red and orange liquid inside coughed and spluttered as heat from the Bunsen burner excited it from below. Professor Plum wiped his weary eyes; only the excitement of finally finishing the potion kept him awake. Just a few more hours, then it would be ready…

 

Remember to include:

  • Fronted adverbial 
  • Expanded noun phrases 
  • Speech sentences
  • Punctuation . , ! ? ( ) 
  • LOTS OF ACTION!

 

Have fun! We cannot wait to read them smiley

Kennings Poem

 

This week we would like you to write a kennings poem about something or someone.  It could be an object, a favourite thing, a favourite person or even yourself.

 

Each line can ONLY have 2 words - either a noun-noun or noun-verb.  Some examples below.

We look forward to reading them.  Good luck

Tongue twisters are great fun to try and read as well as write.

You task is to write a tongue twister of your own!

Use the examples to help and remember to use alliteration (same sound) when you write.

 

Good luck, I look forward to reading them...... Well, trying to smiley

 

Something a little different.

These are word based puzzles that require you to use logical thinking.

Have fun with these.

Enjoy

A few little tasks to practise fronted adverbials.  Remember, they are placed at the beginning of a sentence to give more information - where, when or how.
A short (ish) grammar task for you to complete - Thinking about the use of inverted commas in direct speech.
