Year 5/6 Writing Task

 Our learning is expanded noun phrases.

First of all, re-watch the video from yesterday – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVM1xEdp83Q.

Today, your task is to write a diary entry as Ali (the main character from the video). Imagine you’ve spent a day in Baghdad (the capital of the Ancient Islamic Civilisation).  You must tell your diary what you’ve been up to and what it’s like to live there. You must also use expanded noun phrases. Your diary entry can be as long as you want but we’d like it if you took no less than 30 minutes to complete this task.

Challenge: write more diary entries as Ali – use your imagination and make some things up (they should be believable though) or find out some about this civilisation.

Year 5/6 Reading Task

Your learning today is to summarise.

Your task today is all about summarising. Use the full newspaper from Wednesday’s learning and scan to find the pictures in each section. Write down the page number and section and then write the key points from the article under “What’s the story?”.

FirstNews activity

Challenge: play the ERM Challenge with someone at home – choose a topic you’re confident about or choose an article you’ve read this week in First News and your job is to speak about it and summarise the key points about it for as long as possible without saying ERM or hesitating. Email us with your high scores!
