Latest English Lessons - Week Commencing 6th July
Have you ever lost something? This week's learning is going to focus around the lovely book by Oliver Jeffers, 'Lost and Found'.
What is a boy to do when a lost penguin shows up at his door? Watch this short animation here to discover more.
Who was this penguin? What was his name? Where did he come from? Make a found poster to display in case anyone is looking for the penguin. You could follow either of these links to learn how to draw a penguin for yourself: here and here.
Listen to Mrs Blackmore reading Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers here. If you have the book at home, you could read along with her. The boy wants to find out where the penguin came from, of course, and return it. But the journey to the South Pole is long and difficult in the boy's rowboat. What would the boy need to pack in his suitcase? Show this on the empty suitcase in the file below, or think of another way to show what he would need.
Choose your challenge from the reading comprehensions below. Read the text and answer the questions.
Today we will be planning our own story. Look at the planning sheet in the file below. How could you change each part of the story to make it your own? You could find a lion on your doorstep or even a crab. Maybe you must return your animal to the ocean or perhaps you will fly to Australia. Choose an animal of your choice, the destination that you will need to return the animal to and the journey that you will make. Fill out these details on your planning sheet.
Day Five Write your own version of Lost and Found using the great planning that you have already done. As always, we love to read your stories and will make a PowerPoint of your own KS1 Lost and Found that you send.
