Warm up: write as many contractions as you can.*

 

*contractions are two words written/said as one -> I’m, we’ll

This week in literacy you are going to write your own narrative based on the story ‘The World Made A Rainbow’ by Michelle Robinson. This book was written by Michelle Robinson following the first lockdown last year. It’s a lovely book with a wonderful message.

 

 

Here is a reading of the book itself.

The World Made a Rainbow by Michelle Robinson | Kids Book Read Aloud

readaloud #covid #teachersHello everyone, Today I will be reading the ever so wonderful book called "The World Made a Rainbow" by the talented author Michel...

In each lesson we will have our success criteria to follow. The success criteria are what I need to see in your work to see what you are learning whilst at home.

 

Success criteria:

  • Conjunctions
  • Proper nouns
  • Characters
  • Setting
  • Paragraph
  • Build-up
  • Adjectives
  • Contractions

 

When we have used conjunctions before, we have called them subordinating conjunctions or coordinating conjunctions. Today I would like you to use a range of these conjunctions from the table below.

 

 

These videos will help you remember how we have used them before.

Main task: today you are going to write the build-up of your lockdown narrative. Yesterday you introduced the characters and setting of your personal narrative, so be sure to use them again today. I would like you to focus on using the success criteria again to write about what is happening in your story.

 

Here is my example:

 

Betty swirled her fork in the spaghetti when her mum said she would not be going to school tomorrow. Betty didn’t understand why and her mum explained it was so everybody could stay safe. Betty felt upset at not being able to play with her friends or hear the end of the story her teacher had started. Betty’s mum suggested they paint a colourful rainbow for everybody to see.
