Monday

Learning Objective: To become familiar with books set in other cultures – oral rehearsal of writing

 

In today’s lesson you will be using your story map to help you act out each section. Have a go at making up your own actions to show what is happening, just like we do in class before we write a story.

Why not ask an adult to take pictures or video your acting so that your teacher can see how you’re been doing? Send you pictures and videos to year6@woodsideacademy.co.uk

Here's a video of Miss. Collinge acting out the first part of the story to help you...
