I hope you are all keeping well!
For the final comprehension of this term I have selected a really fun text! There are two tasks for you to complete.
The first is answering questions on the text. Remember to back up your answers when needed using the text.
The second is to complete the text. You have two options for this. Try to make your stories as interesting as possible but still make sure it fits in with the original text.
I hope you all have a good book to enjoy at the moment. If you haven't, I'd like to recommend two books which link perfectly with our World War 2 topic. Firstly, Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. This is a story seen from the eyes of 10-year-old Annemarie, a Danish girl, who watches the Danish Resistance attempt to smuggle almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark across the sea to Sweden. A tale of heroism during a time of war.
Secondly, The Missing: The true story of my family during WW2 by Michael Rosen. A fascinating read punctuated by poetry.
I am also hoping to distribute 'There's a Boy in the Girls Bathroom' to all our Book Club members. I will try to find a way to enable us all to continue reading this wonderful book together! Keep checking for updates!
This week, I would like you to continue to write a daily diary entry. Write about your new daily routine. Have you adjusted to home schooling? Have you missed school? Have you been outside at all? What was it like? In what other ways has life changed over the past week?
After the Easter holiday, I will be setting writing tasks based on the book 'The Wind in the Willows' by Kenneth Grahame. If you have a copy of the book, you could start to read this over Easter. If not, you could listen to the text for free on Audible (see home page for link).
I would like you to practise writing sentences with parenthesis. We wrote lots of sentences in class last week. Can you remember the three different ways we can punctuate parenthesis?
Here are some worksheets to try. Choose just one!
