Day One 08.06.20

Session One- Wellbeing Journal and English

 

Session One: English- Using one armed robot letters.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbm3rj6

One-armed robot letters are: b, h, k, m, n, p and r.

They always start by going straight down, up, and over. Most of these letters have a curve, except for the letter k.

 

Describing words

Describing words are also known as adjectives.

Describing words are words that describe a noun (the name of a thing or a place). For example:
It was a terrible book.

The word 'terrible' is an adjective because it tells us what the book (the noun) was like.

 

Activity 1: Hunting for one-armed robot letters

Take a piece of paper draw seven big boxes or use the template provided in the printable version of the day.

  • At the top of each box, write a different one-armed robot letter.
  • Go on a hunt around your house or garden and see how many items you can spot that start with each letter.
  • Write each item down in the boxes as you go.
  • Once you've finished you can decorate each box with drawings of some of the items.

 

Activity 2: How well do you know describing words?

Try the quiz on BBC Bitesize (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbm3rj6) and see how many you can get correct. Remember, describing words are also known as adjectives.

 

Activity 3: Let's make a poster

Imagine you're making a poster for a missing monster.

  • First decide what your monster looks like.
  • Then draw a picture of your monster.
  • Add labels to the different parts of the monster to describe its features.
  • Try and include at least three labels on your monster and see if you can use multiple describing words together. 

 

Here are some examples:

Six bright, blue, shiny eyes.
Three spotty, green legs.

Once you've finished, read through your labels and circle or highlight all the one-armed robot letters.

Sentence Challenge:

These sentences are not very exciting at all! Can you make them better using adjectives and adverbs?

 

Remember that an adjective describes a noun.

For example: He picked up the dusty, old suitcase. 

 

An adverb describes a verb (doing word).

For example: Paddington walked slowly down the platform.

 

 

Can you make them exciting by using lots of wonderful vocabulary?

 

A bear stood on the platform.

 

__________________________________________________________________________________

 

 

He carried a suitcase.

Can you draw what is inside his suitcase?
