English: 

LI: To create two characters of your own

Later on this week, you will hopefully be writing your own fable. We have to plan this very carefully to ensure that you are successful. I would like you to think of two characters, these will be the main characters in your fable. It might be wise to have two contrasting characters, like a big animal and a small one or a nasty animal and a kind one. Your characters must be animals. I would then like you to draw these characters on a page and generate lots of vocabulary around them to describe them. Once you have done this, you will be ready to write two character descriptions of your animals.

Spelling: Ask an adult to jumble up your spelling words so that they look like alien words. You now need to try and work out what the words are.

English:

LI: To create a description of a setting that includes powerful adjectives and vivid verbs.

Today, you are going to pretend that you are film makers and you are going to look at some different camera shots of settings (please see link below). It’s really important that when you are writing your fable the setting is painted as a picture for the reader in their mind. You are going to do that today by writing a description of the setting and how this relates to what is going to happen in the fable linked to the moral. To help you do this I would like you to create some powerful adjectives. You also need some really vivid, which means clear in your mind, verbs, they make clear pictures in your mind. EG: darkened and glistened and loomed and lay and shared,

An Example:

As the sky darkened, bright sparkling stars glistened in the cool night air. In the distance, the glowing moon loomed over the vast desert. The soft amber sand lay still, undisturbed by the wind and not even a whisper could be heard. Two men appeared out of the shadows and spoke in hushed voices. They did devious deals and they shared sly secrets.

So can you see, the first section is all about the sky. Then the second section is about the sand and the desert, and the third section it introduces, comes closer in on the characters.

You now need to think of a setting and what is going to happen in your fable. You could also consider the moral of the story. Think about your main characters. This is not easy, but don't worry your fable will be brilliant! Write a description of the setting in your fable.

English:

Task 1 - With purple pen or pencil, I would like you to read through your writing and see if you can improve your choices of vocabulary in your writing.

LI: To plan my fable

Please go through the following steps. You need a sheet of A4 paper, fold it into 4 quarters and choose a box to make notes in for each step below. 

Step 1: What moral would you like to teach? Think about fables that you know, the Hare and the Tortoise, the Lion and the Mouse, you could also look online and research some more examples. List ideas for morals. It might be an idea to talk through this with an adult as this is tricky. 

Step 2: Who will your characters be? How can you show that moral in a story? Remember fables typically use animals to represent human traits, these are the characters that you created yesterday. Remember you need at least two animals that will represent opposing qualities; this helps set up the conflict or problem within the fable.

Step 3: What problem must your characters solve? What problem must be solved in order to illustrate the moral?

Step 4: How does your fable end? What's the solution to the problem? Remember, at least one of the characters must learn the valuable lesson, or moral, one that you have already chosen.

RE: 

This week we are thinking about being sorry linked to our story Jonah and the Whale.

It is not always easy to be a good friend and to make good choices and sometimes we will make mistakes and we will have to say sorry to others.

We will take some time to think about when we have done something wrong and we will think about what we have to do to be better friends once again.

When we say sorry we must mean it. We must want to start again and want to do something to show others that we will not go wrong again.

As you go through the activities below think about the times that you have apologised to someone and what you could do so that you can be the best of friends with them and with God.

Listen to the words in the song 'You've got a friend in me' from Toy Story.

What was your favourite line in this song? Why was it your favourite line? Think about your friends in school and when you have fallen out with them. When we forgive someone we forget about what they did wrong and we are friends again. Think about what you could do to show that you really have forgiven someone.

 

For this activity you will need some strips of paper in two colours – white and purple would be great!

We have been thinking about being sorry but we first have to think about what we have done that was wrong. For example, we hurt others when we are rude, or mean, or do not share.

Take a purple strip of paper each. On this paper write something that you have done wrong and that has spoilt your relationship with others and with God. 

When we do the wrong thing we have turned away from God. It becomes difficult to be friends and to work with others.

Take some time now to pray. Say sorry for what you have done wrong and ask God to forgive you.

Take a white strip of paper and write the words “God’s Love” on it.
 
Take your pieces of purple paper and make them into a loop (you could use glue or your teacher might staple them together for you!). Thread a strip of white paper through the purple loop to begin a chain. Then link your loops of paper with other links in your class. Make sure there is a clear pattern of white, purple, white, purple.

You should now have a beautiful paper chain!

In this chain we can see that even though we have done things that are wrong, God’s love can always unite us and bring us back together. God’s love is present all around the chain and there is nothing big enough to separate us from God’s love.

Take some time to pray to God to thank Him for His mercy and forgiveness. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to make the right choices and to do the right thing in the future.

English:

LI: To plan my fable

Go through the following 4 steps.

Step 1: What moral would you like to teach? List ideas for morals. What is a moral? Can you think of any that we could recognise from the ones we have studied over the last few weeks?

Step 2: Who will your characters be? How can you show that moral in a story? Fables typically use animals to represent human traits. Try to use at least two animals that will represent opposing qualities; this helps set up the conflict or problem within the fable. You did this last week.

Step 3: What problem must your characters solve? What problem must be solved in order to illustrate the moral?

Step 4: How does your fable end? What's the solution to the problem? One of the characters must learn the valuable lesson, or moral, pre-selected.

Please use the template below to complete your plan. You could print this out or draw it onto plain paper.
