ENGLISH

WARM UP

Find and correct the spelling mistake in these sentences:

WALT: Use direct speech

We use direct speech in texts to show when characters are speaking out loud. To help the reader know when a character is speaking, there are some punctuation rules that we need to follow. Take a look at the PowerPoint below to remind yourself of these rules.

Today, you are going to write Senhor's responses to the animals now that Senhor has heard from all the animals in the rainforest. They have all shared with him their reasons for wanting to keep the kapok tree. What promise might Senhor make? What could he do next?

Your challenge will be to add in some 'show' sentences between the speech to explain what the character is doing or feeling. You could show the movement of the animals as they listen to Senhor or you could explain how Senhor is feeling with all these rare and exotic animals around him.

For example:

"Thank you for telling me about this kapok tree," Senhor said. He glanced up at the tree and placed his hand on the rough bark. "I understand now how important it is to you all." The jaguar lifted its head and looked carefully at Senhor as the man took in the magnificent tree.

"You might understand," the jaguar growled, "but what about the other men who come with their axes?" Its tail flicked from side to side as it remembered that this was not the first time the animals of the rainforest had had to defend their home.

WALT:

Read the extract from 'The Worst Witch' again.

Extract 1

There were so many rules that you couldn’t do anything without being told off and there seemed to be tests and exams every week.

Mildred Hubble was in her first year at the school. She was one of those people who always seem to be in trouble. She didn’t exactly mean to break rules and annoy the teachers, but things just seemed to happen whenever she was around. You could rely on Mildred to leave her hat on back-to-front or her bootlaces trailing along the floor. She couldn’t walk from one end of a corridor to the other without someone yelling at her, and nearly every night she was writing lines or being kept in (not that there was anywhere to go if you were allowed out). Anyway, she had lots of friends, even if they did keep their distance in the potion laboratory, and her best friend Maud stayed loyally by her through everything, however hair-raising. They made a funny pair, for Mildred was tall and thin with long plaits which she often chewed absent-mindedly (another thing she was told off about), while Maud was short and tubby, had round glasses and wore her hair in bunches.

Activity ->

Look at the quotes below from the extra. What do they tell us about the character?

This tell us that...

This shows us that...

 Quote This tell us that... There were so many rules that you couldn’t do anything without being told off... This tells us that no matter how well-behaved the pupils were, they would probably still get in trouble because there were so many rules. ... but things just seemed to happen whenever she was around. ... not that there was anywhere to go if you were allowed out. ... even if they did keep their distance in the potion laboratory... ... with long plaits which she often chewed absent-mindedly...
