It's break time!

Have 20 minutes of exercise, fresh air, relaxation and a snack if you have one.

Go to the toilet, wash your hands and then return ready to learn.


Today we are going to finish your writing and then edit and improve your Richard III recount.

Have you included all the skills you know are good elements to include in your writing?

Look at the 'Can I' questions for the last 2 days - have you achieved those elements?


Can you highlight any apt, tier 3, vocabulary you consider specific to the Richard III content e.g. 

reign, Tower of London, Earl of Hereford, Tyrell, hunched back and withered arm, tragedy.


Using the writing criteria list tick the skills you have already included, and can find evidence for, in your writing.

Then, edit and improve by adding any missing skills in appropriate places.


You do not have to write a final draft, but I know some of you like to - if so, when you have completed all of your editing and improving, below you will find some final draft special paper.


You have all your supporting resources from yesterday - if unsure, look back at yesterday's work first.


Below you will find:

  • writing checklist to give you some ideas of skills to include and identify in your writing
  • some special paper if required.

It's lunchtime already!
I hope you are having something healthy, nutritious and tasty!

ASSEMBLY with Mrs Price.


Can I explore different family patterns and the impact of change?


Listen to the book shared below:

Can you identify the different family patterns represented in the book?


As we are reading you can list the different family patterns on paper.

Can you add further examples from fictional characters in television programmes and from real life experience.


In some families, the family situations change and for others they stay the same for many years.

Read the case study below:

Consider what might be difficult for Paulo, and whether there is anything that he might feel positive about

What is positive in Paulo’s situation (e.g. some things, such as his school and his home, stay the same; both his parents still love and care for him; he has a bigger extended family now).


On paper, write down a few ideas as to how Paulo could try to cope with the changes.

Feelings can change and things which may feel difficult now, may feel different some time later.


Can I revise all the content from La Famille module?


Online learners: log in to Language Angels and try the ‘Listening and Writing Activity’ and the ‘Numbers Game’ under la Famille interactive games.)


Then carry out the assessment below.


Your last task for the day is:


Now relax, get well, and do an activity which makes your heart swell, your mind grow and your head sing - smile so much it hurts! smiley


Happy weekend.

I look forward to having you back in class very soon! wink
