Writing

One of our favourite topics this year was, 'why would a penguin and a polar bear never meet?'. Can you remember the answer to this question? Hint: think about where they live!

 

Here is a story about a pirate who sets sail for the South Pole (Antarctica). I wonder who he might meet there?...

Penguins Make Bad Pirates

Arrrr! Desperate times calls for desperate measures, especially when your pirate ship gets stuck between two giant icebergs in the freezing Antarctic ocean...

Activities for after the story:

 

- Think about these questions:

  • Did you like the story? Why/why not?
  • Can you explain what happened in the beginning / middle / end of the story?
  • How did the penguins help the pirates?

 

- Create a story map. Thinking about what happened in the beginning, middle and end of the story, draw a picture for each of these parts. Can you label your picture? (This could be the first sound of each word / words / a sentence).

 

- Imagine you were a pirate! Which animal would you sail to for help? Could you act out / draw / write the story?

 

- Or use the resources below (to either print or copy for writing inspiration):

Alphablocks - sh & ch

Can you read the words as the Alphablocks come together?

These are great to recap for the pirate writing ideas above...

sh... sh... ship!

ch... ch... chest!

Sentence Song

A song to help children learn how to write a full sentence.

Have a go yourself! Can you write a silly sentence? E.g. I am a frog. Remember when we write a sentence we use a capital letter, finger spaces, full stop and we read our sentence back to check it makes sense.
