Look back with pride and forward with confidence

Week 12 - wb 13th July

Here you will find your daily English lessons. Watch Mr Durrant's video for each lesson and complete the task set underneath. Make sure you send any work you complete to our Year 5 email year.5@candlebylane.co.uk

This week you are going to invent your own Greek-style myth, ready to create your own comic strip next week. You will need to think carefully about the characters, setting and the plot.

 

Lesson 1

Task: Design your characters and use expanded noun phrases to describe them

 

Draw your invented character then describe it using powerful adjectives, expanded noun phrases and figurative language. Think carefully about the characters in Theseus and the Minotaur and Perseus and Medusa if you get stuck.

 

  • What does the character look like?
  • How do they move?
  • How do they behave?
  • What makes them a mythical beast?

Character creation

Mr Durrant talks us through creating characters for our Greek myths

Lesson 2

Task: Write a character description of one of your invented characters.

 

Have a look at the WAGOLL character description to get some ideas. Look carefully at the features used in this example. You might find it easier to write your character description of your mythical beast, but you could also choose any of your characters to write about. 

Writing a character description

Mr Durrant demonstrates how to turn your ideas from yesterday into a written character description.

Lesson 3

Task: Design your invented settings and describe them in detail.

 

Draw your invented setting then describe it using powerful adjectives, expanded noun phrases and figurative language. Think carefully about the settings in Theseus and the Minotaur and Perseus and Medusa if you get stuck.

 

  • Where does your villainous character live?
  • Where does your hero-type character start?
  • How does the setting reflect the character? (e.g. Medusa lives in a dark cave because she is part reptile and can't be around humans)

Setting description ideas

Mr Durrant starts the process of writing a setting description

Lesson 4

Task: Write a setting description of one of your invented settings.

 

Have a look at the WAGOLL setting description to get some ideas. Look carefully at the features used in this example. You might find it easier to write your setting  description of the home of your mythical beast, but you could also choose any of your settings to write about.
