5W students have spent 4 days this week working on writing a story from an image. Their planning will be shared with you on their comment below this. Your son or daughter will bring home his or her handwritten story this weekend to share with you.
We watched an episode of Shaun the Sheep and deconstructed the story. We read The Gruffalo and watched some clips of it on YouTube. We discussed how the author had made the characters and settings interesting. Then your child had 2 writing sessions to write his or her own story. This story may or may not be finished. Your comments to your child would I’m sure be most appreciated.
Dear 5W students and parents,
You will have heard that school is closed today due to the snow, travel delays and slippery roads.
Here are some things that you might consider looking at doing:
1. Please look for 2~5 recyclable items to bring to school tomorrow as discussed in class and as emailed to your parents (for the next unit of inquiry – wearable art)
2. Mathletics and Khan Academy tasks are set.
3. Please enjoy a good book and update your reading record.
4. Other 5W home learning possibilities can be found HERE
Please stay safe and warm today. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
Either your first name or your family name? It’s interesting isn’t it. Please add your information in the comment boxes below. My name ‘Julian’ seems to mean ‘youthful.’ My family name has no special meaning – as far as I can find out. My son Basil’s name is more interesting. Have a look:
