English

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

Reading

&

SPAG

Purple Mash 2Do – The Lost Myth of Mathos

Read chapter 2 and complete the multiple choice comprehension.

Challenge: Complete the sequencing task in the resources folder.

SPAG – LMO Mathos_Chapter2_SPaG

PDF in the resource folder.

Session 2

An Incredible Journey

Plan your incredible journey story on the planning sheet in the resource folder.

You need to plan out a mythical creature. Use these websites if you need inspiration, or create your own creature: https://www.ducksters.com/history/ancient_greece/monsters_and_creatures_of_greek_mythology.php

https://www.kidsnews.com.au/greek-myths-and-legends/ancient-lands-were-filled-with-monsters-animals-and-beautiful-sirens/news-story/80e1289cfbb7f7e28e3dd447a5e81028

You will also need to plan a reason for the journey and how the journey transpires.

You may also want to map out the story using a story map or a story mountain. (I have included examples in the planning pack. This will help you stay on track during your writing session.

Session 3

 

(You may want to do this over a couple of sessions)

An Incredible Journey

Write the first draft of your story out.

Keep checking back to your plan to make sure you are following the stages of the story we expect to see.

Use the checklist to support your writing style. I am particularly looking for:

  • Powerful vocabulary choices.
  • Varying sentence starters.
  • Use of paragraphs for a change of focus.
  • Use of commas to provide clarity in extended sentences.

This story is about the journey on/with the creature so don’t spend too much writing time on the discovery of the creature. The focus is the journey and the experience of that journey.

Session 4

An Incredible Journey

Take your finished story and go through it with a coloured pen/pencil checking for any errors or anything that is not clear.

Go through the checklist and identify areas that need tweaking.

Once you are happy with your story:

Type your story out in neat on the 2Do app on Purple Mash.
