Good morning or afternoon!
Hope you had a good first week at home and a lovely weekend!
Hopefully the weather will continue to be so lovely!
This weeks weekly writing task is to write a Dreaming Story based on the Aboriginal dreaming stories of Australia. I have uploaded two different examples of an Aboriginal dreaming story and an explanation of what a dreaming story is! There are more examples of dreaming stories on Twinkl too.
I have also uploaded two different types of plans to help you structure your story. You could use one of them or you could even use both if that helps to plan then structure your story. You could use the example stories for inspiration and even magpie some of the ideas or you could write your own idea completely.
Remember to edit your work, just like we would in class. Try to think what I would be looking for in your writing normally. Try to include some of the following:
Paragraphs, expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials, conjunctions, modal verbs, synonyms, punctuation(: ; - ! ? , ') and 5&6 spellings if you can. Once you have edited your story, you could then write it up in neat or type it up and include illustrations if you wish.
Any questions about the writing task please send me a message on Dojo and I look forward to reading your stories!
The SPaG activities this week are a SPaG mat, which I have uploaded, and a spelling task that has been set on Purple Mash.
I have uploaded three different SPaG mats, which include the answers, so you can choose which one you would like to complete.
I have also uploaded the daily topic tasks based on Australia. Please send through any pictures of activities completed, as I would love to see the work you have been doing!
Have a great week
