Discuss these questions with somebody or make some notes for each one:

How was the boy feeling when the monster appeared behind him?

What made the boy change his feelings towards the monster?

 

You are now going to retell the story from the boy’s point of view (as if you were the boy). Remember to write your story as if you are the boy.

Write in the past tense.

As you write, try to include how you are feeling throughout. Look at this structure to help with your writing.

 

You were happily toasting marshmallows on your campfire.

A monster sneaked up behind you from out of the lake.

You were terrified!

Monster saw a marshmallow and began to drool.

You offered the marshmallow to the monster.

Monster wanted more so you happily gave him more until you ran out of marshmallows!

Monster turned angry and chased you.

You saw your pillow and grabbed it to hide behind.

Monster mistook pillow for a big marshmallow so you took your chance to run off!

 

As you write, try to include different sentence types, like starting with a fronted adverbial.

Use adverbs – suddenly, silently, soon, next, eventually, etc.

Use prepositions for where – above, below, beneath, within, outside, beyond, etc.

History-Anglo-Saxons, Picts and Scots

 

Today, you will be finding out who the Anglo-Saxons were and where they came from.

 

First of all, work through the slides, reading the information.

 

When you have finished looking at the slides, have a go at the worksheets:

 

Choose either worksheet 2A, 2B or 2C to sort the images, then use 2D to record your choices by sticking the images in the right column. Then cut out the words on your sheet and use them to label each picture.

 

You may want to wait until you have placed everything in the column you think is correct, before you stick everything down.

 

Extra Challenge

 

Choose Question Sheet A or B  and Answer Cards A or B (depending on which Question Sheet you have chosen).

Cut out each of the answers on the Answer Cards and match them to the questions.

Place the answers on the Question Sheet until you are sure you have them all in the correct place.

Once you are sure, stick them down.

When you have finished, you could create a pictorial timeline, comic strip or storyboard of the events surrounding the Anglo-Saxon invasion and settlement of Britain.
