Week 3 - wb 4th May

Over the next few weeks we are going to explore a story from "far, far away". In line with our topic of Castles and Kings, all the activities we will be looking at will relate to the story 'Shrek 3' which can be downloaded a chapter at a time (Chapter 2 is underneath this section). All that is left to say is good luck and keep on reading!

Activity 1

Mr Moss says "Can you read chapter 2 and think about the new character we meet called Artie. What do we know about him? How do you know that? Which part of the text gives you that information? After you have found this information can you think about how he might be feeling after finding out this news from Shrek? Will he be happy? Anxious? Have a discussion with somebody and let them know what you think (don't forget to explain why)."

Activity 2

Miss Philpott says "can you read chapter two of 'Shrek 3' again and put the pictures from the story in the order that they happen? (see pictures attached as pdf. below). When you have them in order can you talk about each picture and retell the key parts from the chapter?" (Don't worry if you can't print the pictures, they have been numbered so you can just write them in the correct order).

Activity 3

Miss Stone says "can you read through the chapter and highlight any words you don't understand. When you've got your list together go and research what they mean and write it down. For an extra challenge, can you then use the words yourself and put them in some other sentences about Shrek and the gang?" (Use the sheet below to help order the words you find and the meanings they have).

Activity 4

Miss Cooper says "draw a line down the middle of a page and name one side true and the other false. Can you use the text to find out if each statement is either true or false and place it on the correct side?" Clue - If you read the statement first and then look for the answer in the text. Challenge - If you wanted an extra task why not create some of your own true or false questions about the text and ask somebody at home to find the answer.
