Something a bit different for the next two weeks - by next Friday you will have written your own portal story, where a character travels to a different world!
Download the file above - it contains all the detailed instructions for each activity. It doesn't really need printing - all the tasks can be done just in your normal workbook.
This week we will be working through activities 1-9, exploring different ideas about doors. On Thursday, you will be inventing a character for an extended story, and preparing your own story plan.
NEXT WEEK we will be writing our portal stories, starting with Section 1 on Monday through to Section 5 on Friday. I will be writing my own portal story too!
Activity 1: Make a list of things you miss doing whilst you are in lockdown.
Activity 2: Write a poem using the structure given in the booklet.
**You can watch Kit Wright reading The Magic Box here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zkpmhyc
**You can download the poem to read below this table
OPTIONAL - Activity 3: Art-based activity designing a special door.
Activity 4: Idioms (we have looked at these before at school - they are common phrases that are often used in informal speech). Try and work out what the idioms about doors might mean.
Activity 5: The Door by Miroslav Holub. Read the poem and answer the questions. Watch the videos of the poems being performed. If you would like to, have a go at preparing your own reading of the poem. How will you do it? You can email me a video of your performance if you would like to!
Activity 6: The Snow-Walker's Son by Catherine Fisher. Read (or listen to) the extract and answer the questions.
Activity 7: Grammar/sentence activities based on the extract from Activity 6.
Activity 8: Preparing a character for your extended portal story.
Activity 9: Plan your extended portal story. Your story will need to be planned into 5 sections (you will write one section a day next week):
1. Main Character finds a magical portal and enters a new world
2. Describe the new world
3. Main Character explores the new world and encounters a character
4. Main Character has to escape and return through the portal
5. Main Character cannot find the portal again
