Reading at home

Junior Book Club

Don’t forget that you can watch some of your teachers reading class novels three times a week. Check your parent mail for the logins to our reading YouTube channel.  Mrs Eccles is reading Matilda. Miss Pipkin is reading The Creakers. Mrs Mutch is reading Malamander. Mr Hill is reading The Explorer. Mr Uppal is reading Harry Potter. Mr Roberts and Mrs Welch are reading a variety of children’s bedtime stories and Ms Keight is reading Mr Stink.

 

Websites

We have added https://readon.myon.co.uk/to the junior home learning page. This is a fantastic free resource, which we signposted you to a few weeks ago as it links to Accelerated Reader, which we use in school. It provides digital versions of over 7000 books and 5 daily news articles for pupils of all ages and abilities. There is also the option for books and articles to be read aloud to the children, ambitious vocabulary is highlighted and there is a link to an online dictionary. The benefits of daily reading are huge: young people that read daily are 4 times more likely to read above the level expected for their age compared with those that do not read daily. Children can carry out their Accelerated Reader quizzes at home (you must use the link on the website to access the site).

There are also a variety of virtual reading ebooks on the Oxford Owl website, which you might choose to use www.oxfordowl.co.uk .

 

Accelerated Reader

Use the following instructions to help you access Accelerated Reader, where you can read a wide range of books and complete quizzes once you have finished the books.

All details and login information can be found below:

Additional reading resources, such as recommended reads for ages 7-9 and 9-11 and Book Bingo for stories, text types and authors can be found here: Reading Resources

 

Week Beginning: 13.07.2020 - Writing Task

1. Features of a recount:

Read these two types of recounts:

What are the two different types of recounts called?

What similarities can you spot?

What differences can you see?

What are the features of a recount?

 

 

Can you identify any of these features in the 2 recounts?

  • Uses the past tense
  • Uses first person pronouns (I, we, my etc)
  • Uses time conjunctions
  • Uses inverted commas to show direct speech
  • Describe the writer’s point of view and feelings
  • Uses ambitious describing words
  • Includes opinions (e.g. I think, I feel, I believe)

 

         

2. Planning your recount:

You are going to be writing a recount about your time in lock down. You might want to choose a specific week/day/event in lock down to share.

 

You can use any structure for your plan- notes, a road map, thought shower etc.

 

3. Tenses:

What tense is used in a recount?

Can you write the past tense for these present tense words?                            

  • Sit
  • Think
  • Skip
  • Learn
  • Play
  • Walk
  • Keep
  • Laugh

 

Using your planning, write 10 sentences to share what you did during your time in lockdown. Ensure you use the past tense in each sentence and highlight any past tense words.

 

4. Planning your introduction:

Can you complete the 5W’s questions for the introductory paragraph for your recount- remember to write this in the past tense?

 

Who

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

What

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

Where

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

When

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

Why

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

 

5. Conjunctions:

Co-ordinating conjunctions:

Function: To join two independent clauses together. An independent clause is a part of a sentence that makes complete sense by itself. Each independent clause could be it’s own sentence.

 

 

 

 

Subordinating conjunctions:

Function: To join an independent clause to a dependent clause. A dependent clause gives a bit of extra information and does not make sense independently.

 

Using the conjunctions fans above, can you write 5 sentences for each type of conjunction using your planning for Day 1. Can you underline the conjunction used?

 

 

6. Writing your recount:

Using your planning map and your introduction planning, can you now write your recount for your lockdown experience? You can write it as a diary entry or a newspaper article.
