The Secret of Black Rock- Jane Considine

Lesson 2

This video lesson is to be completed today Friday 14th January

Please see the YouTube video - Jane Considine’s Live Lessons-The Secret of Black Rock- Lesson 2

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_Lmizr_HX0

It is really important that the children do write the vocabulary that Mrs C suggests and that they try and add their own ideas when they are doing the thinking side as this is the ideas side. They should be referring to this when they are crafting their own sentences.

For some there is a ‘Thinking side’ template on the website. This is there to support children who may struggle a little with their own ideas. For those who do not struggle, please try and draw out your own thinking side in your book and don’t use the template (just be guided by Mrs C on the video lesson)

Again for those who can, they should be trying to deepen the moment- this means not moving the story on or adding any different twists to it but choosing a way to add more detail for example:

 

Taken from Lesson 1-  This is the sentence Mrs C wrote and the children will have written their own sentence along these lines.

As the daylight subsided, a fog appeared all around.

They could then deepen the moment by adding some extra information about the fog such as:

It wrapped itself around the small boat like a blanket

(a simile has been used here to add description, but the children can use alliteration, adverbial phrases, description of what can be seen etc)

 

 

Complete the work as you listen to the video.

Enjoy!

Writing side for anyone that may need support
