Reading

  Reading is the most important thing you can do to help your learning at any time, so it’s been fantastic to receive lots of emails this week about how much you have all been reading!

  Activity 1: This week we are going to continue the story of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ Follow my recording along with the story below if you would like. Once you have read or listened to the story head over to the kahoot below and see if you can answer the questions! The link is below and the pin for the kahoot is 0349033.

Writing

Activity 2: This week look back at the story of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ that we read last week and this week, or have a watch of the video below to remind yourself of the story.

  Rewrite the story of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ for yourself, focusing on either the humans or the fairies. If you would like you can add a twist or change something in the story.

  Can you include speech marks, main and subordinate clauses and some of the fantastic descriptions you have been writing over the last two weeks?

  There is a kahoot for you to play when you think you have learned your spellings, the link is below and the pin is 08732731.

Extension 1: Mrs Calzada has found a fantastic competition for us to join in with. Here is a quote from the website to tell you more about it:

  ‘This is your opportunity to write about your experience. Until midnight on Friday the 17th of July, you can submit a piece of writing about what life has been like in lockdown and during the coronavirus.

This could be a personal experience, a poem, or a creative story. All of you will have had a unique experience that is only yours, and only you can capture in words.

Your entry should be 700 words or under and you should submit in your age category.’

  This is what I set you for your extension 1 activity last week and the week before and I will be setting this for next week as well, so you have plenty of time to work on it and perfect it! The link to the website with all the information is below.

  Extension 2:  Have a look at the ‘Respond’ sentences below. Can you use them to write a story, or a poem or a diary? There are some pictures below as well to give you some more inspiration.
