Challenge: Can you check 3 of your questions for Group 2 using inverse. Visit https://www.theschoolrun.com/inverse-operation for a refresher on how to use inverse operations.

 

English

LO: To create a character and write an opening to a story.

Look back at your chart from yesterday. Think about the characters and their relationship. You are going to help David Walliams write his next book by helping him invent a child and adult character. Draw your characters and label them.
Think about:
Is your child a boy or a girl?
Is the adult a man or a woman?
What will their relationship be? (Uncle, Auntie, Grandma, Mum, Step Mum, Dad, Step Dad, Cousin, Sister, Half Sister etc.)
What do they look like?
Do they have any unusual features?
Label your new characters. Try to use some expanded noun phrases for your labels, e.g. On top of her head she wore a ruby red beret with a large ostrich feather attached to the side. Write a short paragraph to introduce your characters. Include a description of what they look like and some interaction between the characters. Do your characters like each other, admire each other, trust each other, dislike each other or despise each other? Use what they say and do to show this in your writing, e.g. As Auntie Ada entered the room, Isla froze. Immediately, her eyes darted to the floor to avoid any eye contact. “Look up girl when I walk in to the room!” demanded Auntie Ada. From this we can tell that Isla is scared of Auntie Ada and that Auntie Ada is authoritative. When you have finished, read through your writing and check your spelling and punctuation.
