9:30-10:00 Guided Reading

Each day, as well as including the text for you to read, I am also including the audio recording of the chapter. You should only use this is you feel you need support to develop your understanding of the text and/or to support you with your reading.

 

Know (understanding)

LO: To understand how inference is used to engage the reader.

SC1. I can explain what inference means.

SC2. I can find examples of inference.

SC3. I can explain why an author might wish the reader to use the skill of inference.

 

This week, our guided reading focus is inference. Inference questions are the types of questions that involve reading between the lines. Pupils are required to make an educated guess, as the answer will not be stated explicitly. Pupils must use clues from the text, coupled with their own experiences, to draw a logical conclusion.

Here are two short videos explaining what inference is and how to use inference when answering questions about the text.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Group One – page 137-141

Use a dictionary to find a definition for the following words:

Gravity

Evolved

Incline

Crested

Condescending

Translucent

 

In this part of the text,  we learn a little bit about the animals who live outside Coral City. Use the text to help you answer the following questions:

 

1) What can you infer about the type of person Flick is by the author’s use of the word” wistfully”?

2) Jonathan tries to walk normally when he is in this new world. Why do you think it is important for Jonathan to be seen as normal person by the people who live in Coral City?

3) What can you infer about Jonathan’s actions when he reached the edge of the cliff and “with a spin on his heal, he tipped backwards off the edge, the suitcase still in his hand.”?

4) What can you infer from the last sentence “This time, Flick didn't hesitate to jump.”?

11:00-11:15 Break

 

11:15-12:30 English

 

Show (applying)

LO: To apply my knowledge of embedded clauses when developing a text.

SC1. I can explain the purpose of embedded clauses.

SC2. I can plan a setting description using embedded clauses.

SC3. I can write a setting description using embedded clauses.

 

I today’s guided reading lesson, you learnt about some of the animals and plants which exist outside of Coral City. In her writing, the author uses literary devices such as embedded clauses to help add interesting details to her descriptions:

“They went up a small incline, the deep green grass giving way to chipped shale in the delicate lilac-silver, and stopped on the top of a hill.”

In this example we can see that the author has added interesting, though not vital, information to help the reader understand more about this world.

Today, I would like you to create your own creature and/or plant which would live in this calm and beautiful world. Whatever you create must fit in with this world, it cannot be something which would be out of place with its surroundings. In your description I would like you to use a variety of embedded clauses to develop the description of your animal and/or plant.

 

Task One - Videos

Watch today’s video to help you understand more about today’s challenge.

 

 

 

 

If you need additional support, you can watch the videos I created last week (Thursday and Friday)  to help you understand how to use an embedded clause.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Task Two - Planning

Today, you are creating your own animal and/or plant for Coral City. To help you design your animal or plant I have put together a PowerPoint with lots of amazing images of curious animals and plants. You will use these images to help you plan out your ideas. You may even want to design and label your own animal or plant. I have also included a writing checklist to help you with some of your ideas.

Remember, when you are writing, that you are writing for an audience of readers. These readers need you to help them imagine your animals and plants. By adding descriptions and fine details you will ensure that the reader is engaged and enjoying your description.

 

Task Three – Writing

When writing about your animal and/or plant, remember to use your senses to help show how it looks, moves, interacts with its surroundings etc. This will help to bring your description to life.
