Year 5: Tuesday 7th July: Home Learning: English

Good Morning Year 5,
Today is your fiction writing tasks.

PLEASE COMPLETE TASK 4 ON YOUR BLOG

Task 1: Answer the questions, use your imagination for the first 2 questions. Think about a boy approaching the door and what he will see.
The last 3 questions are philosophical and should get you thinking about the difference between stealing and borrowing.

Task 2: this is about using a relative clause, if you need to revise this look at the following website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/zsrt4qt

Think about your answers to questions 1 & 2. I thought a boggart, which is a magical creature from Scottish folklore, would emerge from the door. (See what I did, I used a relative clause by adding ‘which’ and some extra information!) My sentence might be:

The boggart, who was very quiet and sensible, crept our of her tiny, stony house.

Task 3: There are 3 rubbish sentences here. Can you add some expanded noun phrases, a fronted adverbial, adverbs or even some figurative language?

Task 4: write the rest of the story

Write this on the blog please.

Below there is the start of a story. You don’t need to write all of this out, just write:

“The moment he has been waiting for had finally arrived…. The door began to slowly creak open….”

Bronze: use full stops and capital letters.
Silver: use adverbs, fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases.
Gold: use figurative language and a relative clause

  1. He saw 8 blue little legs like a spider. A blue baby-like body appeared. The blue face was filled with pure evil: Red eyes, blood on mouth. It was a blood hungry creature. The boy screamed in horror and ran to the village. He told the villagers that the tiny door opened and a monster came out. The villagers came with pitchforks and torches and found the monster. They found it. The monster bit one of the villagers neck. Luckily they had antidotes. They attacked it and one of them got it on its pitchfork and it died. They burned the house.
