English  – I can publish and perform my shape poem.

Today you will be writing up your shape poem – a poem which follows a shape! In your printed packs you will find an outline of the Iron Man (Shape poem template) If you would prefer to draw your own outline instead, that is absolutely fine, but it will need to link to The Iron Man! You will need to think carefully about the size of your handwriting with this activity. If you run out of room, you could always double up around the outline! Here is my example and the checklist to make sure you have included everything.

My idea is that, during our Zoom call in the afternoon, you can perform your poem to the rest of the class, but only if you wish! I would love to see you performing your poems either way, so if you would prefer to just send me a video or audio recording on Dojo, that is absolutely fine! When you are performing your poem, think carefully about your tone of voice, expression and any sound effects or movements that could accompany your reading of the poem!

English – I can plan and draft my shape poem.

Today we are going to turn your ideas from yesterday into sentences to use in your poem. I will post a video explaining how you could go about doing this to Dojo in the morning. Write the first draft of your poem down and get your parents (or me!) to check your spellings. We will form them into a shape poem tomorrow!

Here are some of the other children’s ideas to magpie. And my example from the video (I added in commas to the end of each line and capital letters, Dojo has an 8 minute limit so had to speed through!) I have also now realised I didn’t include an adverb! Hopefully you can do a better job of getting in all of the points of the checklist!🙈

Here is a toolkit to remind you of what to include:

English – I can generate ideas to use in my poem.

Over the next two days we are going to plan, write and perform our own poems based on The Iron Man. Today is going to be all about generating ideas, words and phrases that we can use in our writing. I would like you to think about the appearance and movement of the Iron Man, using powerful adjectives, similes, metaphors, verbs and adverbs. I have attached a table below which will give you some idea as to how to lay out your ideas. I have also given some examples to get you started! Remember, you do not need to form full sentences and verses today, we will do that tomorrow! Today just gives you a chance to get down as many brilliant words and phrases about The Iron Man as possible! Use the pictures, what you have heard in the story so far, the poem and even videos to inspire you! There is a trailer on YouTube that has some clips of ‘The Iron Giant’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doSJxiYp9yo

English  – Blackout poetry

Today I would like you to think really carefully about the words you like in the poem The Coming of the Iron Man. We are going to take these words and create a ‘Blackout Poem’ a little bit like the ones below: Blackout poetry inspiration

You will need a printed copy of them poem (in resource packs – the copy that DOES NOT have the image on it): Blackout Poetry

  1. Draw a box around some words or phrases in the poem that you particularly like – eg ‘crablike hands’. Be careful not to draw over the chosen words! I would choose between 6 and 12 words or phrases. These do not have to read together to form a sentence, but children may wish to do this as a challenge to themselves (a bit like example 1 and 4 above)
  2. Blackout the rest of the poem so that only your chosen words are visible. You can use paint, pencils, pens, pastels, charcoal, crayons, whatever you have handy! It is up to you how you do this – you could have a totally black background (like example 1), you may want to create some shapes linked to the Iron Man (like example 2) or you could create an image as the background (like example 3 and 4) – just remember NOT to colour or paint over your chosen words!

I hope you enjoy this activity!

English – Predictions

If you have missed the end of Chapter 2, please catch up with the videos on Dojo (alternately you can read it yourself: The Iron Man text))! We are thinking about what might happen in the next chapter:

Chapter 3: What’s to be done with the Iron Man?

What do you think should be done with the Iron Man who is currently in the stupendous hole?

Write down your prediction and try to explain why using ‘because’. Use this sentence structure to help you:

I think the Iron Man should be… because…

CHALLENGE: You could record more than one idea. What would the farmers want done with the Iron Man? What about Hogarth? Can you use evidence from the story so far to back up your ideas?

Watch out for me reading Chapter 3 later to compare your predictions with what actually happens in the story!

Today we are going to learn how to use inverted commas correctly. I will upload a video to Dojo in the morning talking you through the rules and showing you an example of the work I would like you to complete.

Convert this text message into direct speech between Hogarth and his Dad (see my example on Dojo):

Remember the key rules:

  • New speaker, new line
  • Punctuation goes within inverted commas
  • Inverted commas ‘hold’ the words that are being spoken
  • You will need a reporting line: eg. “Help!” shouted Hogarth.

CHALLENGE: Can you continue the dialogue between Hogarth and his Dad? What would they say to each other next? Remember to keep punctuating the speech correctly!

English – writing from the Iron Man’s point of view

Listen to the first chapter again (scroll down to Monday’s learning for video), focusing on the part where the Iron Man rebuilds himself. (Text version if you would prefer to read it yourself: The Iron Man text)

Your task today is to rewrite a short section of the story as if YOU are the Iron Man. I have done an example of the first stage of the rebuilding: Iron Man point of view PDF (if your photo looks a little blurry!) I have taken the original text and used it to build my story as if the Iron Man is telling it.

I would like you to rewrite the next stage of rebuilding from the point of view of the Iron Man. The text is below, use this to build your writing, just like I have done in the example. Remember to use first person (I, me, us, we) and try to vary your sentence starters (DO NOT start with ‘Then’ every time!) It is good practise to discuss your sentences verbally first before writing down your ideas!

CHALLENGE: Can you include varying lengths of sentences – short sentences for dramatic affect as well as some expanded sentences with conjunctions (because, but, so if)?

Science – Cleaning pennies experiment!

PREDICT: What will happen to tarnished pennies when they are soaked in different liquids? Eg. water, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, soapy water and lemon juice (other liquids you have in your house could also be experimented with!)

TEST IT: Soak some old pennies in these liquids. What happens to them? Were you right!?

DISCUSS: Why does this happen? Does rinsing the pennies off after change the effect?

The Science: Pennies tarnish because oxygen in the air causes an oxidation reaction. When placed in acidic liquids, the oxidised copper is dissolved and the pennies become shiny once more. If the liquids are not rinsed off, the pennies will quickly tarnish again and verdigris (a green copper salt) may form on their surface.

*I’ve attached some links below to give you some ideas about how this experiment works!

If you do not have the resources needed for this experiment, do not worry – the children could still discuss and predict what they think might happen and then watch this video!

Year 2 – You have finished the topic Mass, Capacity and Temperature! For today, I would like you to have a go at applying some of these skills practically. I have listed some ideas below!

  • Using measuring jugs – parents you could give the children a measurement (eg. 200ml) and they have to fill the measuring jug to that level. Similarly, you could fill the measuring jug to certain level and the children have to read the measurement (this will give them good practice at working out missing measures)
  • Using scales – weigh some different objects around the house (children can round to the nearest 100g to make this easier).
  • Estimating – select some objects from around the house. Can they order them from lightest to heaviest? They could then check using scales! This would work for capacity too – they could predict which containers hold the most liquid.
  • Baking or cooking – practicing weighing and measuring with a yummy reward at the end!

If you do not have all of the resources required, please do not worry – a robot out of natural resources or a collage using things like newspaper/tinfoil is absolutely fine! The children could also write instructions on some baking or cooking they have done as another alternative!

Phonics/Spelling – this is the last session on this sound/spelling pattern. As the PowerPoint is slightly shorter, we usually do a spelling test at the end using the week’s focus words to see how well the children have remembered them.

Reading comprehension – if you have picked up printed resources, these should be in the packs! I’ve attached the one I would like you to do this week below. You may choose to discuss these questions verbally or the children could record their responses in writing. If your child is in Year 2 and they want a challenge, they are welcome to try the Year 3 text. Equally, if your child is in Year 3 and finding it a little tricky, it is fine for them to try the Year 2 text!

Explanation writing! Today I would like the children to write some labels explaining what a robot does. I have added a high quality example below. The children do not have to write this much or using such technical language but it is good to aim high!

The children could draw their own robots to add labels to or they could write labels for one of the pictures below. Please ensure the children write in full sentences using capital letters and full stops. These robots can be as creative as the children wish – I know they have fantastic imaginations and I cannot wait to read about the robots functions they come up with! Those of you who designed robots last week have a head start on this!

Diary entries! Your task is to write a diary entry for the girl when she gets home that day – so carrying on from the example you read on Friday. This part will be about the explosion and how it made her feel. She may also write about what she intends to do next. I have added some sentence starters below if you are not sure where to begin and some of your brilliant emotion words!

Use the toolkit below to ensure you have included all of the features of a diary.
