To learn with respect and belief; to challenge, create and dream!

Week Beginning 29th June 2020

For the next few weeks we will be looking at creating a leaflet about a destination within the UK. As the summer holidays may look a little different this year, it could be nice to explore the UK and find a place to visit!  Below is a link to a geography page, where you will find some activities which link to the map of the United kingdom. 

Thursday 2nd July & Friday 3rd July 2020

For the next two sessions, we will be researching information to put into our leaflets.  We are going to be finding out about places in the Uk.  Don't forget the purpose of the leaflet is to persuade people to visit.  You can choose from either one of the capital cities within the UK: London, Cardiff, Edinburgh or Belfast. We have provided a few links to different videos.  Watch these and fill in as much of the planning sheet as possible. Feel free to record these in your own way if you wish.  You could also look for pictures and a map which you could include too. Feel free to find your own websites and use your own knowledge!

Wednesday 1st July 2020

(SPAG Focus) Today we will look at a few more detailed examples all about places in Europe. We will begin by identifying those words (adjectives) which have been used to add exciting description.  This exciting description is trying to persuade people to visit.  Read the two examples and make a list of all the exciting adjectives that have been used, for example: breath-taking views, exciting activities, glorious sunshine.  Later in the week, try to use some of the words that you have written down in your own leaflets.

Now try finding and write down:

  • 3 question sentences
  • 2 exclamation sentences
  • an adverb

Think about why these techniques have been used?  What is the effect on the reader?

Find these words and talk about what they mean (found in the Austria brochure):

  • best kept secret
  • unspoilt
  • endless playground

Tuesday 30th June 2020

In a week or so, we would like the children to have created a leaflet about a destination within the UK. To begin with, we need to look at a few examples to see what features a leaflet includes. Begin by watching the video clip (BBC Bitesize) and completing the short online quiz. Then try to find the features of a leaflet in the examples.  The leaflets can be found on the power point.

Monday 29th June 2020 

We begin the cycle of learning with a reading comprehension. This comprehension looks at coastal holidays.  As well as practicing key reading skills, it is also a chance to discuss some different geographical language with the children, for example: beach, cliff, coast, hill, seaside towns, coastline.  There is a challenge page.  This includes different style questions which the children should be use too. 

If you would like the comprehension printed for you, please pop into school and it will be available from the school office.
