Look back with pride and forward with confidence

Week 5 - wb 18th 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 4 is underneath this section). All that is left to say is good luck and keep on reading!

Activity 1

Miss Philpot says "can you read chapter four of 'Shrek 3' 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 chapter without the need to look back and read it again?" (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 2

Mr Moss says "Can you read chapter 4 and think about the character Prince Charming. 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 throughout this chapter and the ones previously? Will he be happy? Frustrated? Have a discussion with somebody and let them know what you think (don't forget to explain why)."

Activity 3

Miss Stone says "can you read chapter 4 and pay special attention to the characters; Shrek, Fiona, Arthur and the Queen Mother. What do we know about them from this chapter? How might they be feeling? What might they be thinking? After writing down a few of these facts, can you then use them to base a prediction of what might happen next? e.g. Arthur might go back to school because Shrek said all those mean things about him? (Remember, the best thing about predictions is that they can't be wrong, it's what you think, just use the text to give it meaning!)

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.

Activity 5

Miss Stone says "read chapter one again and think about the emotions the characters might be feeling for each key part of the story, can you look at the emoji's and match them to a part of the story so far (download the pdf below the text), explain why you have chosen to put it with the picture you decided on. If you would like an extra challenge can you think of any other emotions that the characters might have been feeling? Could they have been feeling more than one? Explain your answers to somebody in your house.
