Monday 24 January
Today, we're going to explore AJ's feelings. Read chapter 'Seventy-Five Times' first. Then, use the questions on the slide show to reflect on what you've just read. Then we're going to explore emotions on the young minds website. You're going to do some research and based on that you're going to be writing advice.
Tuesday 25 January
Read the chapter 'Stardust' before the lesson.
Yesterday, we explored anger and tips on how to deal with it. Do you think AJ would have benefited from knowing those tips?
This week, you'll be writing a leaflet to advice children like AJ on how to deal with their anger. Today, you will look at an example leaflet and remind yourself on features of writing an information text.
Read through the slideshow and use the example leaflet to look for features of information texts.
Wednesday 26 January
Read the next chapter 'Special' today.
After looking at an example leaflet yesterday, you are going to write a draft for your own leaflet. The slideshow talks you through the criteria of the leaflet. Use the planning frame document to write your draft on. Each text box will be a box on the leaflet. Think about what size box you want to use for which section.
You might want to look at the information from Young Minds on anger that we looked at on Monday. It can be useful when you're writing your leaflet.
Thursday 27 January
It's writing day. You've done most of the hard work already and today is just about creating the final product.
Use the leaflet format below to write on. Before you start writing in best, you need to edit your draft. Look for opportunities to improve your writing (the slideshow reminds you what to look for) and use the marking ladder to check if you've included everything that's needed.
Friday 28 January
In today's grammar lesson, we are exploring how to add relative clauses to a sentence. Think back to our lesson on relative pronouns
(who, which, that, when, where, whichever, whenever, whomever), it will help you creating your own relative clauses today.
Then, work through the questions on the slideshow.
