Literacy support 27th April 

This week we are going to complete a report all about Lego. In order to do this, we need to gather lots of facts. Monday and Tuesday will be spent doing this before we start planning and writing on Wednesday.

You should aim to achieve the following learning objectives:

  • WALT take relevant notes
  • WALT use subheadings to organise our ideas
  • WALT use literary devices to engage the reader
  • WALT use pronouns and synonyms to avoid repetition

Monday: Watch the film clip and make notes about your favourite points  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdDU_BBJW9Y&t=2s

Tuesday: Re-watch the film clip and answer the questions to clarify your understanding

Wednesday: Plan your report using a mind map.

Before we start writing, it is important that your report has a title. Although you can come up with your own title, the report you are going to write will be about The Lego Story and how the toy came about.

Once you have done this, spend today’s session creating a mind map of important information to consider for further research to use in your writing. You could consider the following areas which might be used as subheadings in your report: The creator of Lego, his family, their background, the actual product, the success of the product, Lego today. This is your chance to gather as much information as you can, both from the film and from your own research. Remember to include all the key vocabulary you will use.

Thursday: Have a careful look at the success criteria for your report. What kind of language will you write your report in? It should be factual and formal, although you may choose to use a more informal tone in your opening to hook the reader.

Today you are going to write your opening paragraph.

Listen to the questions used in the opening of the film. Could you use questions like these to hook the reader in your introduction? E.g. Do you play with Lego? Do you like to build with these small bricks? Have you ever wondered how they were invented?

Use questions like these and everything else you know about how to engage the reader to create your introductory paragraph. Remember, at the end of this paragraph you need to lead into your report with a linking sentence e.g. Read on to find out how this strange little brick turned into a household name around the world.

Friday: Today you are going to write 2 more paragraphs to your report, thinking carefully about using subheadings to organise your ideas. There is lots of interesting information in the film however, you need to think about including the information that is appropriate. Is it important to know that Ole Christiansen owns pets? Is it important to know his profession? Does the reader need to know what Lego is?

Remember to use complex sentences to keep the reader engaged. For example, rather than simply writing ‘Ole Christiansen fell upon hard times,’ you could develop this further: ‘The founder of Lego, Ole Kirk Christiansen was the tenth son of relatively poor family from Denmark who fell upon particularly hard times, after losing both his wife and his business in quick succession.’

You will finish your report next week.
