He may be recalling the events as if they happened in the past.

​Example
It was a day like any other.  I spent it looking for clues in one of the thousands of Nanotech buildings around Nanosaki.  I pushed the container to the edge of the 87th floor and watched it fall down.  The noise it made thundered around the empty buildings but there was no one there to hear and it was the only way I was going to get it open. 


I switched on the machine and there I was, my own face staring back at me.  It was coming back to me. I need to get to research facility B.  

What is that noise?  I better leave now. 

Oh No!   A gyrocopter. I'll head for the tunnels.... 



Remember to write in the first person ... I

 Hello, 

I hope you're all well and keeping busy. This week I thought we should do some non fiction writing so I would like you to write some instructions. This is something you will have all done lots of times in school so you should all feel quite confident about it.

You can choose what you'd like to write instructions about but here are some suggestions if you are a bit stuck.  Below is a collection of simple science investigations, my favourite is "Which Materials Make the Best Pirate Ship?" After you've had a go at one of the investigations you can write a set of instructions for someone else to follow.

science_investigations

 When you write up your instructions remember to:

  • Use a heading and subheadings 
  • Include an introductory sentence
  • Include a list of what is needed
  • Put the steps in chronological order 
  • Use imperative/bossy verbs like cut and stick
  • Use bullet points or numbers to separate your steps
  • Include a conclusion

Please try and write in complete sentence starting with a capital letter and ending with a full stop. 

Organise your writing into paragraphs if you can.

 

Here is an example of how to lay out your instructions, scroll down to see the annotated versions.

_Instructions_Example_

 

 

 

I'm sure you have all listened to the audiobook that I shared last week.... 

Now I have created a book in my library on the Book Creator website. You can add some information to my book by following the link below and then entering the invitation code (also below). You will see the book with a picture of the cover of the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.  Click to edit the book and create a page with first impressions of the story. What did you think of the main character? Did you find out what happened to the dog? What else did you like (or not) about the story?

Here's the link:

https://app.bookcreator.com/

And here's the invitation code so you can get to my library and edit the book:

There were some problems with the website last week; so the pages didn't go live until Thursday. Therefore we are going to leave this week's home learning on for this week as well, to give you chance to complete it. If you have already done it, you could try doing some of your Study Ladder activities. If you don't have a password for this, email your tutor or Mr Day. 

Week beginning 1st June 

Mr Kittow's English Classes

 

My Y10 English class would have been studying a book called "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime" this term. It's a great book and I think my Y11 students will also enjoy it. To ensure you don't miss this opportunity, below I have added a YouTube recording of an audio version of the book. Next week, I'll add a video of the stage version of the book. Have a listen to the audio book (just a few minutes a day, if you can) and then we'll use the Book Creator app to try to understand what it is about:

There is also a live-stream from the Unicorn Theatre that The Guardian newspaper is making available free of charge for children during the lockdown. There is a new story every Saturday. Follow this link to hear the stories:

 Hello Everyone,

Here is a link to listening to Chapter 2 of the BFG. You need to listen to it or you could read Chapter 2 if you have a copy of the book at home.

After you have finished reading/ listening you can do one or all of the tasks below.

 

Task 1

Sophie thinks the BFG is very scary. Can you draw a picture of a very scary giant?

Next complete this table

noun

adjective

adjective

eyes

enormous

black

nose

 

 

feet

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then write some sentences to describe what the giant looks like using the words in the table to help you. Try and describe the way he moves too.

Task 2

Answer these questions.

  1. What does “peer” mean?
  2. What does “frozen with fright” mean?
  3. What happened after the giant stopped at Michael and Jane Goochey’s window?
  4. What did Sophie do when the giant noticed her?

 

Task 3

 

  1. How has the choice of words in the first paragraph created a feeling of fear?

It wasn’t a human. It couldn’t be. It was four times as tall as the tallest human. It was so tall its head was higher than the upstairs windows of the houses. Sophie opened her mouth to scream, but no sound came out. Her throat, like her whole body, was frozen with fright.

  1. Why do you think the author compares Sophie to a mouse?

“And there she crouched, still as a mouse, and tingling all over.”

 

Years 10 and 11

Hello Everybody,

I hope you’re all staying safe and finding lots of fun things to do. Here is some English work to keep you busy this week. Remember to keep reading as often as you can and complete some phonics sheets too.

First read chapter 1 of The BFG by Roald Dahl if you have a copy or listen to the chapter being read on You Tube:

Here are three tasks, they get gradually harder. You can do as many or as few as you like!

Task1

Draw a picture of the dormitory. Label it with nouns and adjectives.

(Remember adjectives are describing words.)

 

Task 2

Describe the room where the children were sleeping. Try and include lots of different words to describe the quiet and the dark like hushed, silent, still, black, lightless, gloomy.

 

Task 3

Answer these questions using as much detail as you can. Remember to write in complete sentences.

  1. Which words and phrases tell us that the dormitory was quiet?
  2. What is the witching hour?
  3. Why do you think the author chose to describe the light as a “silver blade slicing through the room onto her face”?
  4. How did Sophie react to what she saw?
  5. Why do you think the author has NOT told us what was coming up the street?

Years 10 and 11

 This week we thought we could try some descriptive writing. Try to include the things we have practiced in school like similes, interesting adjectives, comparatives and superlatives, alliteration and repetition if you can.

Before you start, have a look at You Tube and watch some clips of battle fields like this one from War Horse below:

You are going to imagine that you are a soldier at a battle like this one.

Listen to the sounds and imagine what you might feel and think etc.

Make a spider diagram of the 5 senses and create a word bank.

Remember to include these in your description.

You can write your description straight onto paper or the computer or you can print off the writing frame below and write onto that.

Good luck and if you want to show us any of your work send it to:

   gshabytah@southbrook.devon.sch.uk  

or   vbrowning@southbrook.devon.sch.uk

Reading

It is really important to practice your reading whilst you are off school. As well as your reading books, please try and read as much as you can.

If you want to keep up to date with what is going on in the world you can read an issue of First News the children’s newspaper, using the following link: https://subscribe.firstnews.co.uk/free-downloadable-issue/ 

 Oxford Owls has many books online to read, including Book Banded books; so you can read lots of new and exciting texts. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/ 

 Many pupils have or have had a Teach Your Monster to Read account and it is good for pupils who are still learning to read. Follow the link below to set up an account: https://www.teachyourmonstertoread.com/

Phonics

 Phonics Play is free at the moment, so if your child is still working on their phonics and learning to read, there are many good games to reinforce sounds. https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ 

Phonics Bloom also has lots of good games for pupils who are still learning to read. https://www.phonicsbloom.com/ 

Writing

 One really good way to keep practising your writing is to keep a diary for Miss Shabytah, Miss Browning or Mr Kittow about what you have been up to whilst you are off school. You can do it on paper or on the computer. If you like using Word or Powerpoint, you could do it using that and email it to us, so we can see what you have been up to!

 For those of you feeling creative, have a look at the daily picture on Pobble and practise your descriptive writing skills! http://www.pobble365.com/head-of-the-world/
