Monday: During the lesson today you will be looking at a persuasive text and identifying the features the writer has used to persuade you, what the main points of the argument are and why the text has been presented in the way in which it has.
As this is a comprehension lesson, part of our class read 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' will be read - I've attached a copy of Chapter 5 - Diagon Alley. Have a read of this at some point during the day too.
Tuesday: Today's lesson is about different types of adjectives and spellings. There are two types of adjectives that we use - they are comparatives and superlatives.
Take a look at the video below where Rob and Sophie explain what comparatives and superlatives do and how they are used in our sentences.
Now you've watched that and have a better idea of what comparatives and superlatives are have a read through the presentation attached and then complete the worksheet below.
Wednesday: Thinking back to your new gadget invention you are going to start working on a radio advertisement to entice more people to buy your product.
Listen to the radio advertisement below – think about how it persuades the listener to shop at that particular shop without having any images to show the customers.
When you write your radio advert for your new gadget you will need to think about writing it as a script. Remember that when you write a script you will need to name who is speaking first followed by a colon and the words that need to be read by you or your actor friend (parent, sibling, carer etc.). I’ve attached an example of a radio script below – remember you will need to think about how things are said and any noises you might want to include in the background to make your listeners tune in to what is being advertised.
Thursday: For today’s English lesson you are going to complete your radio script and rehearse it – you might want to voice record this with someone else at home and test it out. Think about the different techniques you can use in a radio advertisement. Use the checklist below to make sure you’ve thought of everything.
Friday: Today’s the day to record your radio advertisement – take some time to practice it before you hit record on your tablet or phone. Remember you only need to voice record the advert because it needs to be used on the radio and people can’t see what you’re doing on the radio. Go through the checklist again to make sure you have everything included.
When you have recorded it send over a copy to me on Class Dojo.
