For my challenge this week, I would like you to create a maze. Look at the images below for some inspiration. The more items you add, the more difficult your maze becomes. You could use cut up section of straws or small pieces of card or paper to create the maze. For the ball, you could use a dried pea if you haven't got anything else. When you have completed your maze, take a photo and send it to your teacher good luck!

LO: To use a scene to create a story.

The Wrong Trousers
Watch and enjoy the clip below from Wallace and Gromit. The Wrong Trousers – Train Chase – Wallace and Gromit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrmZIgVoQw4&feature=emb_rel_pause  In the clip, only Wallace speaks. View the clip again and note down what Wallace says. Today, you are going to write out the scene as a story. Think about what happens in each part of the clip.
How does it start?
What happens next?
Note down the stages to help you remember. Think about the choice of verbs and adverbs that you use. This is an action scene so how can you make it exciting for the reader? E.g. When Gromit is laying the track down you might say: ‘Gromit quickly put the new track down.’ This could be improved to: ‘Gromit frantically flung pieces of the track down.’ Make sure that you include the speech from Wallace that you noted earlier. Use inverted commas and other punctuation to indicate direct speech e.g. “Help me Gromit!” cried Wallace. Try to include some of the Year 4 sentence types that you have looked at in school, e.g. where or when fronted adverbials e.g. • Eventually, Wallace and Gromit caught the penguin. • Under his arm, the penguin held a hessian sack.
