Today we are going to start to plan your own goblin story. First look at the structure of the Impossibly Possible Bookshop story on p24. Then use the grid on p25 to plan your own story. I suggest using one of the goblins you created last week as the main character (MC means main character). If you are stuck for ideas there are some to look at on p26.

SPaG

We have ordered SPaG workbooks for you all which should arrive at school this week for you to collect. These are simple to complete as you can write in them and importantly they will give you some time away from your screen. When they are available to collect I will let you know.

You should remember from last week that we were learning about apostrophes.

Today please recap how to use apostrophes for possession – when something belongs to someone. Complete the activities here

 

English

To start this week’s English and get you in the mood for writing your own goblin story, I would like you to choose one of the creative activities listed below from your English booklet:

  • The poetry activity from p20 or
  • The goblin menu activity from p21 or
  • The goblin necklace activity from p23

If you have time you can do more than one of these activities.
