Literacy

In this unit you will be writing a newspaper report based on Spiderman. On Friday you wrote a headline for your newspaper based on the clip below. Today I would like you to watch the clip again and make notes using the following questions:

1) What can you see?

2) What can you hear?

3) If you were there how would you be feeling? Write down all your feelings.

4) What are the other people doing? What are the policy doing?

5) What does Spiderman do?

6) What could happen next?

You will need to fast forward the clip to 16 minutes to watch the clip again, and you can watch it as many times as you like.

(This lesson has been produced by Oak Academy and is deemed suitable for classroom use in upper primary school. It contains a clip from a PG film which contains moderate violence.)

## The Tale of Peter Rabbit

Today I would like you to read The Tale of Peter Rabbit on the attached  PowerPoint. When you have finished the story, please answer the following questions:

1. What did Mrs Rabbit buy at the baker's?

2. Why does Mr McGregor not like Peter Rabbit?

3. How did Peter get caught in the gooseberry net?

4. If you were a rabbit would you behave like Peter or like his sisters?

5. Do you think Peter learned his lesson?

Maths - Shop work

You will need some coins to do this task. Ask you parents/carers if there are any you can use. Make up 10p in coins, in as many different ways you can. You may want to use a grid like this:

 10p: 10p: 10p: 10p:
