The_Captive_Celt_Chapter_1.docx

The_Captive_Celt_Chapter_2.docx

The_Captive_Celt_Chapter_3.docx

This will support you to re-cap what has happened in the story so far. Today, you will be using your plans from yesterday to write up your diary imagining that you are Deri and that you have been captured by the Romans. This will be a description of what has happened to you.

Remember to include:

  • - Dear diary
  • - Past tense
  • - Paragraphs
  • - First person ‘I’
  • - Time conjunctions

Here is an example of a first paragraph for your diary to help you:

Dear Diary,

I have become a slave! A pitiful helpless boy. I know it is the Romans who have captured me. I watched as they killed my parents and I feel both shocked and devastated. Before I knew it, I had tight cuffs around my neck, hands and feet. I could not move and therefore, felt claustrophobic. I would do anything not to be a slave… absolutely anything.

‘’Where are they taking me?’’ I thought to myself. Through my teary eyes, I could see the bright whiteness of the cliffs moving away from me. Will this be the last time I ever see my homeland?

 

Challenge One: Use your story map pictures from yesterday. Can you write a sentence/caption underneath each picture to describe what is happening. Try and write your sentences as though, you are Deri using, first person ‘I.’

 

Challenge Two: Use your ‘boxed – up’ plan from yesterday to write up your diary entry from the perspective of Deri.

 

Challenge Three: Use your planning notes from yesterday to write up your diary entry from the perspective of Deri.

 

Maths:

Multiplication: Please choose the quiz that focusses on the Times Tables that you have been practising:

Can you describe the foods in your menu to encourage the customer to buy them?

       

 

Music:

Please choose a task below to complete:

Task One: Create your own musical instrument.

Try creating a shaker by using pasta and rice in empty bottles. You could also, decorate your bottle!

You could also try using bottles either filled with varying degrees of water or empty and scraping them with spoons or twigs to make sounds, or just upturned pans and colanders.

 

 

Task Two: Make your own guitar!

Using tissue boxes, shoe boxes without the lids or fruit punnets you can create a string-type instrument.

Use the box for the base of the instrument and take four to six rubber bands. Wrap the rubber bands around the base, the long way, and make sure there is space between the rubber bands. Experiment with ways of making sounds with the bands.

 

Also try using small pieces of sandpaper wound round a finger of each hand to rub together and create sounds.

 

Task Three: Listen and sketch!

Choose a piece of music that you enjoy listening to and that you find relaxing. Draw to the sounds and music using crayons, pencils, felt tips, paint brushes and respond to the music through your drawing.

Task: Once you have gone through the PowerPoint, please choose a task to complete: 

Grammar_Tasks.pdf

There are two sheets of sentences. The first sheet has the simpler sentences and the sentences on the second sheet are more complicated. Please choose a set of sentences to focus on and then re-write them including, full stops, capital letters and question marks where needed. Remember- don’t look at the answer sheets until you have finished!

Literacy:

Reading and Writing:

This week we are going to be focussing on a book that links to our Roman topic named ‘The Captive Celts.’

 

 

Please read Chapter 2 of The Captive Celt story.  Chapter 1 is also below for anyone who would like to recap the chapter from yesterday.

The_Captive_Celt_Chapter_1.docx

The_Captive_Celt_Chapter_2.docx

Then, I would you like you to use a thesaurus to search for synonyms. Remember that a synonym is a better use of a word for example, big = giant, colossal, enormous.

Please make a list of words from Chapter 2 that you would like to find and search for its synonym using, a thesaurus.

If you do not have a thesaurus at home, please use the link below and this will take you to an online thesaurus. Type your word into the search box, and then many examples of other ways to use that word will come up underneath.

https://www.thesaurus.com/browse/kid

Now, please consider the questions below and choose a writing challenge to complete:

What has happened to Deri?

Where is Deri now?

How would he have felt?

Would he have rather died or become a slave?

What was the last view of his homeland?

How do you think it would feel to wear handcuffs around your hands, feet and neck?

What words could we use to describe how Deri would feel leaving his home?

 

Challenge One: I would like you to re-read chapter 2 and consider what it would be like to be taken captive. Then, I would like you to write the headings: see, hear, touch, taste and smell and write words and adjectives underneath each heading to describe the 5 senses that you think Deri is experiencing being held captive.

E.g.

See= Crowds of anxious people.

Hear= The sighing of the wind in the trees.

Touch= wet muddy puddles under his feet.

Taste= The dry crisp air.

Smell = The salty sea air.

 

Challenge Two: Draw a picture of Deri with thought bubbles around the outside. Write Deri’s thoughts as he was being captured in each thought bubble.

 

Challenge Three: Write a paragraph from the point of view of Deri using, first person ‘I’ to describe what it would be like to be taken captive. Consider: The 5 senses (See, hear, touch, taste, smell), adjectives, similes and fronted adverbials for description. Also, remember to include how Deri is feeling.

Here is an example of how you may choose to start your writing:

All of sudden, I heard the words ‘servus’ being whispered into my ear. A lump appeared in my throat and I was finding it difficult to swallow. I soon realised that this word meant ‘slave.’ I hadn’t had time to register the death of my parents but I now knew what heartbreak felt like. In the blink of an eye, I could feel the stone, cold chains being tightly fitted around my hands, feet and neck…

Maths:

Multiplication: Please choose a Multiplication wheel activity from the OneDrive folder to complete.

The wheels focus on:

RE:

Today, we are going to focus on the question: What does it mean to pray?

  1. Write a list of the people that care for you and help you.
  2. Can you write a sentence next to each person you have named to explain how they help or care for you?
  3. Christians believe that God helps and cares for them. Christians believe that they can talk to God to ask for him to help them. This is called praying.

 

Task: Use the thought bubble provided and write at least one thing you would like to ask or say to God.

Homework Scheme:

 Every half term the children will choose one or more activities from the homework sheet to complete in their learning log. These will be due in at the end of the term where we will showcase the children's amazing work to our peers.

 Reading:  

Reading as much as possible will really help your child’s progress at school. For their learning passport they must have read three times a week.

Purple mash: 

Purple mash is a fun and an educational site that will help your child's progress in all areas of the curriculum. Please remember to use your child's individual username and password which will be stuck into their reading records. We will be delving into purple mash starting from September!

Ambassador Awards

 This year we have incorporated the Learning Passport within a document that recognises children's achievements in school and the wider community. What is expected in order for children to achieve their 'Ambassador Award' comes under 4 headings:

Citizenship
Relationships
Learning
Behaviour and conduct.

Each section has elements that underpin the values that as a school we hold dear. We believe that learning is something that continues every minute of the working day and is important to recognise children's achievements not only in lessons but beyond. Adults in school will discuss each section with the children and how they can meet the success criteria identified. We are hoping that the children will be able to take some ownership of the passport themselves! Have a look at the Ambassador leaflet to find out more and look through the 'Steps to Success' to help them achieve their Ambassador Awards.
