This week’s English is based around the Purple Mash book “The lost Myth of Mathos”.

You will need to access Purple Mash to complete some of the tasks.

Session 1




Purple Mash 2Do – The Lost Myth of Mathos

Read chapter 3 and complete the multiple choice comprehension.

Complete the sequencing task in the resources folder.

Challenge: Open ended question sheet in resources folder

Make sure you answer these in full sentences that include the question.

SPAG – LMO Mathos_Chapter3_SPaG

PDF in the resource folder.

Session 2

The Beast – Planning a description piece

In this chapter we are introduced to the creature: Kraken.

This week I want you to write a detailed description of a mythical creature.

Either: Write a description of a Kraken.

Or: Write a description of your own monster.

Today I want you to plan your creature.

If you are doing the Kraken, watch these videos and record the information on the planning sheet:

If you are doing your own creature, draw a picture on the planning sheet and then add in details. It doesn’t have to be a sea monster, but your detail must be thorough.

Session 3

The Beast – Write your description

Use your plans from yesterday to write your description. You should be looking to write 3-4 detailed paragraphs, obviously some will do more and some will do slightly less but that depends on you and your self-drive.

MAIN FOCUS – paragraphs

Try to describe a feature of your creature in each paragraph. So spend one paragraph talking about the tentacles, what they look like; their strength; any similes.

Use the checklist to guide your writing.

Remember this is a description as if you’ve seen it, not a report that tells us indepth details of what features are used for.

Session 4

The Beast – Edit and Publish

Edit your writing – go back through your writing, make sure you have accurately punctuated your writing and chosen powerful vocabulary to describe your beast.

Have you included details for different senses?

Have you included details of the full creature? Size? Arms/Tentacles? Eyes? Roar/screech/whisper? Etc.

When you think it is the best bit of writing you can do:

Publish your description on Purple Mash 2Do.

Also please remember to:

  • Read EVERY day. I suggest at least 35minutes and that should include reading aloud.
  • Exercise regularly – dog-walks, trampolining, bike rides or creating your own dances are all vital!
  • Practice and revise spellings –working from the whole term list I sent at the start of term.
  • Talk and be open with each other. This could be a very tricky time and I want you all to be happy and healthy when I next see you. Make sure you don’t bottle too much up and you talk if you have any concerns.

Watch the news (optional) Espresso or BBC Newsround are great ways of seeing what is going on.
