Monday 25th


Duration: 15 minutes


Please practise your spellings. Write them out using 'Look, Cover, Write, Check'. If you can spell them, try writing sentences using the words. It is really important with this particular list that you practise using the words in sentences as I am sure a lot of the words are quite easy for you. The most important thing is you know how to use singular and plural form correctly, as well as with apostrophes. 


Duration: One hour


Learning Objective: To describe your two main characters' personality and appearance. 


Last week you created your setting for your own magical world. This week, you will be writing the story in full. But before you do this, you need to decide on your characters and plan out what they are like. In your world you will have two main characters. The first main character will be the person who discovers your magic world. The second main character will be someone or something your character meets when they arrive. For example, Lucy is the main character in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and the second main character is the faun - this is the first creature she meets when she arrives in Narnia. 


Start thinking about your two characters while you watch the following video. Please do not complete the task on the video - simply watch it to gain ideas.
