English - W/c 8th June

The focus for our English for the next couple of weeks is the short film 'Once in a lifetime', available on Vimeo:

 

Monday 8th June

 

Think about: What does 'once in a lifetime' mean?

 

Watch the clip by clicking on the link https://vimeo.com/23805703 or by clicking on the image above.

As you watch, focus on the character ... Who is he? What does he look like? What is he wearing? Where is he going? What does he see? What does he do? Why? 

Where has he come from? When has he come from?

Can you infer anything about his occupation, his personality, his background from what he looks like?

 

LO: To describe the character using expanded noun phrases.

This is set as a 2Do on Purple Mash.

 

Watch the clip as many times as you need to.

There is a word bank uploaded below, which you may find useful.

 

Remember to practise your new spellings too - see the 'Spellings' tab.

LO: To describe the setting, using the senses and some prepositions as sentence openers.

Watch the video and complete the activities.

 

Then, watch the 'Once in a lifetime' animation again (as many times as you need to), this time focussing on the setting. 

 

You will need to think about prepositions and how you can use them at the beginning of a sentence, and how to describe the setting using 'the senses'.

If you need some help with thinking about the senses the character might experience, please use the 'Senses table', which has been uploaded below.

Further instructions and the task have been set as a 2Do on Purple Mash.

LO: To describe how a character is feeling.

Use your inference skills to ‘read between the lines’. What do you think is happening in each scenario?

Highlight, underline or pick out the words and phrases which give the clues about how the person is feeling.

 

Next, think about how people use their facial expressions and body language to express how they are feeling.

Watch the ‘Once in a lifetime’ animation again, this time focussing on the man’s facial expressions and body language. How do these change throughout the animation?

 

Now, imagine you are the man! 

 

Further instructions and the task are set as a 2Do on Purple Mash.
