6 Blue English Writing – 11.05.20

For today’s lesson, please use the following picture and story starter for your tasks today.

For the last few days, they had been falling from the sky. Nobody knew where they had come from; nobody knew why they were there. The mysterious objects, most of them spherical in shape, lay there on the beach, motionless, immovable despite the tide’s best efforts to eradicate them from the shoreline. Then, a crack began to appear on the surface…

Activity 1 – Please complete the following questions based on the picture and story starter.

Where might these objects have come from?

Why is the surface of the nearest object cracking?

What is inside the objects? Are all of the objects the same?

What will happen next?

If you came across one of these, how would you react?

Do these objects remind you of anything?

Why have these objects landed on the beach? Is it by chance or is it deliberate?

Activity 2

Sentence challenge!

Verbs are action/doing words.

Look at my writing below. Can you locate the verbs and replace them with more exciting vocabulary? Can you add some adverbs to the sentences too?

Out of nowhere, oddly shaped objects came down from the sky. They went into the sand with a loud thump. A group of people walking along the beach saw the objects, and walked towards them. A crack went on the surface, and the gathering crowd made a noise.

    They probably came from the shore of the ocean because when you go up to the shore you see rocks.

    • Good ideas Jessica, make sure you do a few pages of English work in the booklet also.

      Verbs- what verbs could we use to describe how the object got to the beach?

  3. Activity 1
    Where might these objects have come from?
    The objects might have come from outer space.

    Why is the surface of the nearest object cracking?
    The surface of the nearest object would be cracking because of the force that made it be there in the first place. Or it could be a creature waiting to hatch. Or maybe even cracking because aliens would be finding their way out.

    What is inside the objects? Are all of the objects the same?
    There could be a mythical creature inside waiting to hatch like I mentioned previously. Or the objects could be disguised spaceships with aliens inside waiting to launch an attack on the humans.

    What will happen next?
    People may witness the hatching of the eggs and realise the truth when it is too late. The aliens(if there are any aliens in them) could possibly launch a surprise and create havoc in the seaside. However if there was a mythical creature in them the people would run to see the creature and clamor to touch it and witness the hatching of the creature.

    If you came across one of these, how would you react?
    If I were to come across one of the objects I would approach it cautiously in case something out of the ordinary occurs.

    Do these objects remind you of anything?
    These objects remind me of circular shaped rocks.

    Why have these objects landed on the beach? Is it by chance or is it deliberate?
    The objects could have landed there because a predicted lunar eclipse would occur and hundreds of people would gather to witness it so it would be the perfect place to launch a surprise attack when everybody was busy watching the eclipse.

    It could be that there was some sort of link with the seaside and the object that some force had attracted the object to the seaside.

    Activity 2
    Out of nowhere, oddly shaped objects rained down on the shore. They landed in the sand with a loud thump. A group of people walking along the beach noticed the objects, and made their way towards them. A crack appeared on the surface trailing across the object, and the quickly gathering crowd creating a loud noise.

  4. If you came across one of these, how would you react?
    If I was walking along the beach I would have been shocked by these unusual objects. I would be in awe of these huge rocks.

    Do these objects remind you of anything?
    They remind me of a geode.

  6. Where might these objects have came from?
    They may have come from outer space, large fragments of an asteroid that has travelled through the solar system at the speed of light.

    Why is the surface of the nearest object cracked?
    The object is cracked because it struck the earth with such force. As it entered the atmosphere it would have heated to such a high temperature it would have made the object brittle.

    What is inside the objects? Are all of the objects the same?
    Treasure is inside the objects, beautiful crystals that shimmer from the sun. The different objects contain different coloured crystals.

    What will happen next?
    The objects are harvested and taken to a museum to keep them safe and for everyone to visit and enjoy.

    • Good challenge one response.

      For challenge two- do you think you could expand your verb choices to reflect the objects crashing, gliding and falling into place?

    • Well done Haya, could you use your descriptive language features to describe the object laying on what type of sand near what type of water?

      I look forward to hearing your descriptive vocabulary.
