SPaG - inverted commas

Have a quick look at the following video and then see if you can apply the skill in a few sentences by writing down a conversation you're having with someone in your family!

For example;

''Would you like a cup of tea?'' enquired Miss Johnson. (I need to start a new line because someone new is going to start speaking.)

''Always!'' replied Mrs Marks. 

''It'll be two minutes!'' laughed Miss Johnson. 

How to use inverted commas

This video shows you how to use inverted commas to show direct speech in your writing, as well as how to correctly punctuate them.

Literacy

Choose your favourite film character, draw them and write a description of them. 

Include things like;

- their personality

Thoughts and feelings

The video below shows a story of a girl that lives on a whale that swims through the sky. 

I would like you to watch the video and then think about how the whale feels. 

What happens to the whale?

How do you think it feels?

Why does it feel that way?

How would you be feeling if you were the whale?

 

Write a paragraph about the whale. If you feel like doing more writing then do the same for the other characters in the story.

Letter writing- your turn! 

 

Today, I would like you to write your own letter. You can choose which type of letter you write, formal or informal and you can choose who you write it to. You might not be able to send it at this moment in time, but you could write a letter to a member of your family you haven't been able to see recently, a friend from school, someone in an elderly person's home, your teacher, or someone else you can think of. If you want someone to receive it straight away, you could write one to someone in your house. It's up to you! 

 

Whichever one you choose, have your work out from that day to help you (poster/mindmap/instructions etc).
