Sticky Knowledge: Expanded noun phrases.

How do you create an expanded noun phrase?

Following on from your learning yesterday, you are going to describe the facilities on board the Titanic in detail.

Your task is to write two paragraphs to describe two of the images you labelled yesterday. You need to describe life on board the Titanic in detail. You might want to compare the luxury of the first class accommodation to the basic third class facilities. Your vocabulary choices when describing each setting should highlight to the reader which image you have used for your inspiration. Remember to include your writing target. Put a T in the margin to show when you have written a target.

Model text:

From the first view, the majestic, luxury vessel with four funnels towered over the cranes at the dock in Southampton. The large, brass propellers with three blades were submerged under the water, waiting to power the ship to its destination: New York.

In the first class lounge, the diamond chandelier blinked overhead, as wealthy passengers relaxed. The luxurious, comfortable chairs with floral fabric wrapped the passengers in a hug on their maiden voyage on board Titanic. 

 

We are exploring negative numbers today in our maths groups.

Recap your knowledge of continents and oceans by labelling the world map.

Watch the video clip comparing and contrasting the north of England to Australia.

What story would you tell about your local area?

What do you like about where you live?

What do you do in your spare time - hobbies and interests?

You need to present information about your local area, like Talia did in her video about Mossley.

What would you would explain about where you live?

- local area and facilities?

Remember to organise your writing using sub-headings.

You can use pictures and diagrams to support your writing.

25.9.20

English

We have recently learned some new writing targets: metaphor, personification and expanded noun phrases.

What is a metaphor?

What is personification?

What is an expanded noun phrase?

Listen to Eva Hart's description of the lifeboats rowing away from the Titanic and seeing the iceberg behind the ship.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TY-28Jn8yxc

 

Describe the setting when the lifeboats were lowered from the Titanic using metaphors and personification.

Use the modelled text to help you with ideas:

 

Deafening screams pierced the air and shattered the moonlight. The waves were groaning against the body of the ship, as the lifeboats dangled perilously in the air. The stars above were the audience of a true horror story: life hung in the balance for so many passengers. The white, overcrowded lifeboats with ropes still attached crawled towards freedom. Once the boats were lowered, survival was in sight. Watching over the Titanic, the iceberg devoured its prey, as the ship plummeted to the depths below.

 

Write a detailed paragraph to describe the setting of when the lifeboats were lowered from the Titanic and Eva was able to be rescued by the Carpathia.

Remember to include metaphors, personification and expanded noun phrases.  

Maths

We are continuing to explore place value in our maths groups.

Where do our feelings and emotions come from: the heart or the brain?

Research information into the heart and the brain and present information to give your opinion.

Highlight the key information you have read that will help you answer the question of where do our feelings and emotions come from.

You can choose how to present your information. This could be:

  • a colourful poster with facts to explain what you know
  • a paragraph of writing about the heart and the brain
  • a labelled diagram of the heart and the brain

 

 

24.9.20

English

We have been learning about the Hart family in our English lessons and their voyage on Titanic.

We know that Eva Hart survived the tragedy and she was interviewed in 1985 when the wreck of the Titanic was discovered 2 miles below sea level.

Watch the interview from 1985.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TY-28Jn8yxc 

What questions does the interviewer ask?

What questions would you ask if you were interviewing Eva Hart?

 

Imagine you are an interviewer recording a television programme. Write down the questions you would ask Eva Hart about her experience on board Titanic.

What are the questions that your audience would be desperate to know the answers for?

 

Now imagine you are Eva Hart. Using your knowledge of the Hart family and the video of the interview you watched, answer the questions you have written in role as Eva.

Art

We have completed our inner self/outer self portraits this week. Choose a member of your family and create an inner self/outer self portrait of your family member. You might need to ask them questions about their hobbies and interests to help complete the 'inner self' side of their portrait. Remember to use shading techniques to add definition to the 'outer self' half of the portrait and bright colours on the 'inner self' half of the portrait.
