Good Morning Year 6,
I hope you are all keeping safe and well. I was in school last week working with the children of key workers – you can find the photos of what we got up to on the blog.
I wanted to share some activities that you could have a go at this week (I know that it’s half-term but you find yourself at a loose end!)
THE PORT KEY
Have a go at completing the story:
Moments earlier, she had been standing in her classroom holding the tiny port-key up in her hand, waiting for the magic to happen. With a flash and a puff of smoke they had vanished into thin air.
The port-key had taken them to some strange places before, but never to a jungle. The problem with port-keys is that you never quite know where you’re going to end up!
They gazed around them and took in their surroundings; the stifling heat and cacophony of jungle noises put the children on edge – they would have to be exceptionally brave on this particular adventure…
Can you write a description of what it would be like to be in a jungle?
You could think about using your senses, for example, thinking about what sounds you might hear around you.
You could also describe how you might be feeling.
These sentences are ‘sick’ and need your help to get better. Can you help?
The girl held the port-key. There was a bang and some smoke. The children landed in the jungle. It was hot. They were scared.
Can you draw a picture of the children travelling to the jungle using the port-key?
Here are this week’s words:
5 words so one word each day
- Find out what the word means
- What word class does the word belong to? Is it a noun, an adjective, a verb etc?
- Write an interesting sentence containing your word.
- Write some phrases that contain the word
- What synonyms can you find?
- What antonyms can you find?
- What prefixes and suffixes can be added to make new words?
As it is half-term Oak National Academy are not running lessons this week but they have set up an activity club:
There are loads of different activities that you can have a go at: cooking, science, DT…
Enjoy your half term, stay safe and I’ll see you very soon.
