Week 4 - 22/06/20
I hope you are well and are managing to keep busy!
This week is week 4 of our Ancient Greek topic, where is the time going? For our writing we will looking at Greek myths and legends, which I think you will really enjoy. I want you to be very creative using lots of figurative language! Also it would be lovely to see some of your Myths, remember you can email these in for me to look at.
In maths you will be doing lessons 10-15 on Oak Academy (Hopefully you are finding the videos useful), the lessons will continue with the theme of measurement, however for those of you that prefer working away from a computer I have also uploaded some math worksheets for you to print out or collect from school.
We will be continuing to read Stig of the dump, this week will be chapter 2. I have uploaded some questions and suggested which activities you should do, however you can choose any of the activities I have uploaded.
Your topic is learning all about the Olympics and how this began in Ancient Greece, this is one of my favourite topics in the Greeks. Next week you writing will be based on this topic so try to remember as much as possible to help you.
In science we will be continuing to look at teeth and you will be practicing the same spelling rule as last week.
As always this is recommended learning and if you’d like to alter anything to be more creative that’s fine.
Missing you all loads!

This week our WALT is to use figurative language.
This is what I am looking for in this week’s writing (more details on the PowerPoint):
Superlative (fiercest, greatest, most vicious)
Hyperbole (exaggeration eg in the whole of the world, the battle went on forever)
Power of three (powerful adjectives in threes eg he was a brave, strong and powerful man)
Powerful verbs (eg thrusted, ripped)
Listen to a variety of Greek Myths on https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/ks2-ancient-greece/zk73nrd.
Based on some of the myths you’ve listened to plan your own myth.
1.Look at the figurative language PowerPoint and create three examples for each feature that you may use in your myth
2. Write an interesting story opening that includes your setting
-When does it take place?
-Where does it take place?
-Does it provide details that catch your interest and set the mood for your story?
Write a paragraph introduction your characters including a fantastical beast
- What does it look like?
- How does it behave?
- Give a detailed description of it
Write your next paragraph including a detailed description of the struggle to solve the problem
-How does the hero find the beast?
-Is there a journey involved?
-What does the beast do?
-Is there a conflict?
-Does the hero have any help in solving the problem? e.g. friends, special powers.
Write a good ending
-How is the problem solved?
-Who wins the struggle?
-Does the hero receive a reward?
Write up your story and send it in for me to read
You could create a video of you reading your myth for me to listen to?
