Week ending 23rd June 2017
It’s less than three weeks ’til curtain up, folks, so learn those lines. When we get into the hall to start practising on the stage, we need to be word perfect.
We have two pieces of on-going homework: our Isle of Wight diaries and our projects. You should be spending approximately two and a half hours a week working at home on these challenges. The completed challenges are due in to school on the day of our Y6 performance.
Isle of Wight diaries
The diary we kept on the Isle of Wight is our first draft. Use this as a starting point for your presentation version.
Edit this version for accuracy and improvement.
- Spell correctly – check if you are in any doubt
- Get your punctuation right
- Create atmosphere and add detail using adverbs, preposition phrases and expanded noun phrases effectively
- Use a range of clause structures
Your final draft of your diary should be beautifully illustrated and presented. Be proud of what you do.
Isle of Wight projects
Our projects are a chance to follow our curiosity and become expert on something that really interests us. You are in the driving seat, but I am expecting to see evidence of your deep knowledge and learning. Don’t forget to write well – the check list above would be a good starting point.
I am expecting you to present your learning in an innovative and eye-catching way. You want your work to stand out at our celebration evening – your only limit is your imagination.
We will be working on our diaries and projects in class as we continue to learn and consolidate our skills, but it is crucial that you are also working on these challenges at home.
