Class 4 – Daily Activities – 11.05

Good morning. Before you check out today’s activities, here are Thursday’s answers.

If you missed a maths video/lesson or want to revisit something, here are the previous posts.

 

As always, you don’t have to do these activities at a set time or in a set order – that’s all up to you. Also, you don’t have to be doing work all day! Feel free to send in some pictures or videos of some of the other things you have been doing at home.

Reading

Last week, we finished the final chapters of Pax. If you’ve missed any of the chapters and want to hear them again, here’s a link to all the previous posts since Easter.

Our book for this term is going to be The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I don’t have permission from the author/publisher to share readings of this book; however, I do have recordings of the author himself reading the book! The chapters are quite long so I will try and post part of each chapter each day.

 

Here’s some questions about what you’ve just listened to:

1.) What was chapter 1 called?
2.) What happened to the child’s parents?
3.) Who found the child?
4.) Where was Caius Pompeius from?
5.) Who do you think the man climbing into the graveyard was?
6.) “Ever since the child had learned to walk, he had been his mother and father’s despair and delight?” – What do you think the author meant by this?

Writing

The beginning of this book creates a tense atmosphere. Your writing task for this week (it will likely take Monday and Tuesday) is to write your own tense atmosphere. You can base it on a scene similar to the one from the book, or come up with one of your own.

 

Think carefully about how the author creates this tension:
– he doesn’t reveal too much information (e.g. He refers to a knife in the darkness rather than describing a person carrying a knife);
– he repeats certain words or phrases (e.g. the man Jack)
– he uses figurative language (e.g. metaphors, similes, personification) in some of his descriptions (e.g. wisps of the night-time mist slithered and twined into the house)
– he uses a variation of long and short sentences (e.g. It would do)
