Tuesday 2nd June

Good Morning Everyone! If you aren't returning to school today, don't worry - you can find home learning here!

As always - please remember to just manage what you can and take things at your own pace. There is no expectation that you need to complete absolutely everything, everyday.

Get Active!

Join Joe Wicks this morning for your daily workout. If you find Joe's workouts a bit much, you can also join in with Andy's Wild Workouts on CBeebies.

Whatever you choose to do, get active!

Writing - The Secret of Black Rock

Plot Point 2 - The Adventure Begins

Today we are continuing the story. If you need to refresh your memory, you can re-watch me reading the story on Monday's page. The next two pages of the book continue as follows: ...it was too dangerous because of... the legend of BLACK ROCK. Every fisherman and fisher-woman had a scary story to tell. "It never stays in the same place and it could smash a boat to pieces!" "It's as big as a mountain and as sharp as a swordfish!"

1. Think of a joining sentence to join yesterday's work to today's first sentence. It's always a good idea to re-read what you wrote so that you can continue it the next day. You might like to challenge yourself to use words (conjunctions) such as 'however' or 'unfortunately'.

2. Write a noticing sentence about what Black Rock is like. Look at the image I've included and consider which adjectives you could use to describe it.

3. Write a speech sentence about what people say. Try to use inverted commas (speech marks) correctly.

4. Try to include an action (verb) within this, for example 'Black Rock can split a boat in half!'

Read my example for a few ideas.

Year 2, you should be able to confidently use capital letters and full stops in the right places. See if you can include exclamation marks or commas. Remember to add lots of detail to your writing - make it even more descriptive than mine.

To challenge yourself, could you include a simile like the one used in the text? 'As big as a mountain' or 'as sharp as a swordfish' are both good examples, but can you come up with your own idea?

Reception and Year 1

If you are in Reception or Year 1, try to write a minimum of 2 simple sentences. Can you write a noticing sentence about what Black Rock looks like? And can you write a speech sentence (don't worry too much about the punctuation associated with this yet) to explain one of the stories fishermen told?
