Blakeney’s Week Ahead 23rd November


Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well. If you are self-isolating at home, you can keep up with what we are doing at school by following the daily timetable of work as set out below.

Power Maths notes: The practice book and text book pages can be obtained directly from me via email and cannot be published on the website for copyright reasons. Just write and ask for the relevant lessons and I will email them back.

Times tables notes: Please remember that you can login to ‘Tackling Tables’ to practise your times tables. You should be able to find premade flash cards on that website.

Education City notes: If you go to classwork, there are three folders where you can take assessments in Maths, English and Reading. After doing the assessments, Education City will then provide you with revision work that is designed to meet your individual needs. That’s right, by doing the assessments, the activities provided will be tailor made just for you!

Printing notes: Problems with printing? You won’t need to print anything off if you don’t want to. You can do all the work by looking at the it on the computer screen and taking notes in a notebook or on paper.

Feedback: Remember to send a copy of your work to me by the end of the week or daily. This can be done by sending a photograph or attaching a document to ablack@gf.kwestacademy.com

Keep in touch and let me know if you have any problems. I look forward to seeing you back at school soon! Take care.

Break – snack

10.15 – 11.15 – English (Boxing up the text)

In this lesson, you will be using the structure of our model text (The Caravan) and the ideas used in it to help you plan your own warning narrative.

Understanding the layout of your plan

First study the boxing up plan which shows the story structure in the first column and the actual ideas used (in The Caravan) in the second column. The third column is for you to fill out your own story ideas following the same structure.

Thinking

So before you do that, you will need to think of ideas for your warning story. Think of different places your story could be set in. Will you use places you know or somewhere you have imagined? What will your main characters be like? What could they be warned about? By who? What terrible thing could happen? How will your characters escape?

Planning

Once you’ve had a good think, complete the third column of your boxing up plan with your best ideas. Don’t forget to follow the structure described in the first column!

The boxing up worksheet and model text are below:

True Colours Anna KendrickJustin Timberlake

You with the sad eyes
Don’t be discouraged, oh I realize
It’s hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
The darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

Show me a smile then
Don’t be unhappy
Can’t remember when
I last saw you laughing
This world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
Just call me up
‘Cause I will always be there

And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you

So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
I see your true colors
Shining through (true colors)
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful (they’re beautiful)
Like a rainbow
Oh oh oh oh oh…
