Writing

Session 1

 

I can write the days of the week in order.

 

1. Follow the link below.

2. Go to Learn and watch the video about the days of the week.

3. Go to Practise and activity 1 - put the days of the week in order.

Next go to Activity 2:

 

Think about some of the things you've done over the past week. This could be things you've seen, things you've heard or even school work you've done.

 

  • Take a piece of paper and fold it in to three sections.
  •  
  • Label each section with a day of the week - don't forget your capital letters.
  •  
  • In each section, write two things you did on that day.
  •  

Here is an example:
Monday
I went for a walk with my parents.
I did some English school work.

Extension: writing a diary.

 

Let's create a diary that outlines the things you do this week. 

 

  • Write the first day of the week as a heading and then write one or two sentences explaining what you are doing today.
  •  
  • Try to include the joining word 'and' in some of your sentences.
  •  
  • Once you've written your first diary entry, write the next day and continue until you have all seven days.
  • You could also draw some pictures to illustrate the things you did.
  •  

Here is an example:


Monday: On Monday I did some English school work and I really enjoyed it. I also talked to my grandad on the phone.

Session 2

 

I can use capital letters and full stops.

 

1. Follow the link below.

2. Go to Learn and watch the video about Captain Capital.

3. Go to Practise and Activity 1 - Play the punctuation game.

4. Next, go to Activity 2.

 

Next you are going to watch a video about a book called 'Sam Silver: Undercover Pirate'.

 

Before watching the video, write three sentences explaining what you think it might be about. Remember to use capital letters and full stops.

 

Once you've written your sentences, watch the video.

 

After watching the video, look at your sentences- how close were you to guessing correctly? Now, write three more sentences that would describe the story to someone who doesn't know it.

Session 3

 

1. Follow the link from Session 2.

2. Go to Activity 3.

 

Create a list of words that you would associate with pirates. Here are some to get you started:

 

  • eye-patch
  • skull and cross bones
  • parrot
  •  

Once you've made your list, try writing three sentences about pirates using words from your list. Here are some examples:

 

  • Some pirates wear an eye-patch over one of their eyes.
  • A pirate flag usually has a skull and cross bones on it.
  • A parrot can sit on the shoulder of a pirate.

Session 4

 

1. Follow the link below.

2. Go to Learn and watch the video about command sentences.

3. Go to Activity 1 and Spot the Imperative verbs.

Activity 2: Writing some commands

 

Imagine you are the captain of a pirate ship. You'll need to be very bossy and give lots of commands to make sure the other pirates are doing what they are meant to be doing. 

 

Write four command sentences that a pirate would use.

 

Here are a couple of examples to help you:


Drop the anchor now.
Collect my treasure for me.

Session 5

 

1. Follow the link from session 4.

2. Go to Practise and Activity 3.

 

Activity 3: Bossy jobs

 

Think about other people who need to use commands in their job.

 

Mums and Dads give commands all the time, so do teachers, police officers, chefs, doctors, hair dressers and even football managers.

 

Choose a job that you are interested in and write five commands you might need to say in that job.

 

Here is an example:
Football manager
1. Get possession of the ball.
