Happy Monday Year 6! Last week of term!!
This week, we are going to start a new topic! We will be learning about.... monsters!! YAY!
Today's work will be split into 2 different tasks.
TASK 1: DRAW A LABELED DIAGRAM OF YOUR MONSTER.
What will the monster look like? Size? Colour? Skin? Fur? Scales?
How many legs/eyes/arms/teeth?
How will the monster behave? Is it kind or vicious?
Does it have any powers?
Can it speak?
Below are word mats attached to help you with using higher level vocabulary.
TASK 2: WRITE A DESCRIPTION OF YOUR MONSTER.
Now that you have drawn and labelled your new monster, I would like you to write a paragraph describing it. Challenge yourself to use better vocabulary (with the word mats) and use figurative language (metaphors, similes, personification, etc.) too!
Have fun creating your monsters! I can't wait to see what they're like!
Below is the google form so you can send them in!
TUESDAY – 09.02.21
If you are stuck, scroll up and use the word mats!!
Feel free to use the template below or draw one/ create one on a tablet or laptop. Whatever works! Be creative!
I can't wait to read them!
Wednesday 10th February - 10/02/21
Before we start I'd like to say a WELL DONE to all Year 6 children and people at home helping them! I'm a proud teacher right now! You have all come up with great ideas! Some very scary ones!
If you haven't sent in your work from Monday or Tuesday there is still time! Send them in! I'd love to see more monsters!!
We are going to be reading an information text about... yes you guessed it... monsters!!
Attached is the text and you will also be able to click a link to hear it read out loud.
Now, that you have read and heard the text we are going to look at vocabulary. Any new words or phrases? Use a dictionary or an online one to help you.
Below is a definitions activity.

Great work yet again Year 6! The google form is still open if you haven't had the chance to send me your work from yesterday yet!
Today we will be looking at the features of this type of text. It is an information text (or non-chronological report), however, it is based on fictional monsters/creatures. Some people call these Faction! So a bit of fiction with non-fiction (facts).
Today's learning will be split into 2 tasks.
I'd like you to read the information text/non-chronological report "Swamp Monsters" again and underline the key features of it.
Use the checklist or create your own to see if our text, "Swamp Monsters" has these features. I'd also like you to give evidence of that feature too. Not just ticking a box!
Below, I've attached the checklist for you.

Now that we have made a story map, we can retell the text with actions too! A good way of learning how to write different text types is by retelling them with actions to help us remember.
A couple remember tos:
Read the story out loud.
Create actions for key words and phrases in the story.
Watch Miss Stephens retelling the text with her actions!
