English Home Learning- Non-Chronological Reports

WC 18.05.20. The following home learning tasks are available for English. Our next English topic is Non-Chronological reports about Dinosaurs. During this topic, I would encourage the children to take on the role of palaeontologist for the day and find out about a dinosaur of their choice.

Use a range of simple non-fiction books that they can read independently and search the web to find out key facts. Make notes of things that interest or surprise them. Draw labelled diagrams of a chosen dinosaur and practise saying its name. This is over two weeks as there are a lot of different dinosaurs you could write a non-chronological report for! 

Create a palaeontologist's fact file about a chosen dinosaur. Write key facts under subheadings including dinosaur name, habitat, diet, appearance and young. Include a detailed, labelled diagram or downloaded images. Reread and revise their facts, checking for spelling and grammatical errors.

 

Dinosaur facts - CBeebies

 

Use their findings to create a mini information book about dinosaurs. Information could be organised into sections, including types of dinosaur, their diets, sizes or movements.

Resources could also be used from fact files for this topic... these can be found further down the page.

WC 11.05.20- Poetry and Riddles continued this week. Extra Challenge: Can you write about the dinosaurs using adjectives and conjunctions?

English Home Learning- Poetry and Riddles

WC 04.05.20 and WC 11.05.20 . The following home learning tasks are available for English. Our next English topic is Poetry and Riddles about Dinosaurs. During this topic, we would look at dinosaur poems and the different structure of poems such as riddles and acrostic poems. See the examples below. This is over two weeks as there are a lot of different dinosaurs you could write riddles for and you could get creative with writing poems! 

Listen to and discuss poems and rhymes about dinosaurs. Practise reading one aloud with a grown-up. Choose a dinosaur and write clues to describe it. Clues could be about the dinosaur’s appearance, moods, behaviour, movement or diet. End the riddle with 'What am I?' Draw the dinosaur, write its name and cover with a sticky note. Read the clues to a grown up, challenging them to guess the mystery dinosaur. Remove the sticky note to reveal the answer.
