LO: To plan and use descriptive writing in a portal story
Today you will be planning and writing most of the remaining paragraphs for this section of the story and preparing for the rest of the week…
Following the document, look over the box-up. Next, use your imagination (and the questions provided) to fill your own box-up to meet the structure. Then convert your wonderful planning into the next 3 paragraphs of your story, ensuring that they meet the S2S.
These written up paragraphs should only be a first draft, but if you want to ensure they are detailed and meet the S2S as you go, this will mean less work for you for the rest of the week!
As we are working on this for the rest of the week, please do not feel the need to push yourself to complete all of the paragraphs today, remember, you have already completed 1 and 2, so make sure you have a good plan for the other paragraphs and focus on finishing paragraph 3 today, minimum.
Really excited to read your ideas, and see how they develop and evolve across this week!
1. Watch the video below, brought to you by Miss Read
2. Complete a challenge sheet of your choice
3. Self mark using the answers at the end of the document
Any questions, email your class teacher.

LO: Classify books into genres & design a book cover
Today's Guided Reading has an artistic slant!! We shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but it's so often the cover that draws our attention to the books we read.
Think about the types of different books you read and what category they might fit into! Fill out the attached cards and see if you can think of a definition and book that fits into each category or genre.
Now that you have guessed the genre of the books, imagine that you are an illustrator and you have been asked to design the front cover for the Explorer.
First of all, make a list of five criteria for a good front cover!
CRITERIA FOR A SUCCESSFUL FRONT COVER:
1. Striking colours
Make sure that you refer to the success criteria above when you create your cover. Have fun with this!! We will be excited to publish your creations J!
