Look back with pride and forward with confidence

Week 6 - wb 2nd June

Unfortunately this is the final chapter of our 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 (Chapter 5 is underneath this section). All that is left to say is good luck and keep on reading!

Activity 1

Miss Cooper 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 5 and pay special attention to the characters; Shrek, the fairytale villains, Arthur and the Prince Charming. What do we know about them from this chapter (and the rest of the story)? 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 for those characters? e.g. Captain Hook might become the owner of a garden centre because he likes daffodils and believes in himself to follow his dream (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 3

Miss Philpot 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 4

Miss Stone says "Can you draw a picture for the text that describes Shrek's house when him and Fiona go back after the story. If you want to add an extra challenge you could add more features to the drawing and write the sentences to describe it".


The bright, yellow sun is shining high and smiling down on the house with a couple of clouds scattered either side of it. The house sits beautifully in a cleared area where on one side you can see two large, green trees and on the other side lies a single tree with a small bush and wild flowers sat next to it. The house itself has a huge, jagged chimney bellowing from the top made from an old tree stump. Below the chimney, there is a green grassed roof that has lovely, wild flowers sprouting out all over. As you look to the front of the house, you will see a light green door that doesn't quite fit the frame and a piece of rope for a handle. Either side of the door are some oddly shaped windows with twigs to create 4 smaller windows inside the frame.
