 High Diving Giraffes

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPrWo5pEvyk&t=2s

Watch the giraffes carefully and remember the actions and technique they see in the correct order. You may need to pause during different frames (there is a good slow-motion tuck and roll at around 4mins). After you have finished watching the film, write down the giraffes high diving technique. Use time conjunctions (fronted adverbials) to sequence the dives – don’t worry about using technical vocabulary for diving just yet. e.g. First, carefully lower the first giraffe into place using the hanging apparatus: he will be responsible for launching the divers into the air. Next, the other giraffes must get into position etc.

High Diving Giraffes

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPrWo5pEvyk&t=2s

Think about a ttle for an explanation text i.e. How to high dive like a giraffe. Think about the 5ws(who, what, where, when, Why) that introduce the process using 2/3 sentences. Can you include a rhetorical question to hook the reader? i.e. Been inspired to dive by these gentile, agile giants? This step-by-step guide will help to hone diving techniques in no time. Remember to keep the tone impersonal – no personal pronouns. Think about how to turn notes into detailed explanations by adding more detail and including cause and effect conjunctions where appropriate. First, toes are positioned at the end of the board by the diver and arms must be elongated overhead. To keep the head up, focus on a target at a 45-degree angle across the pool. Make sure to stretch the body as much as possible as this will ensure the best take off.

High Diving Giraffes

Today we will be writing the introduction for your diving commentaries. The introduction is designed to hook the reader and give more information about the event – it should be no longer than a few sentences long. It needs to be concise and provide an at-a-glance guide. Commentary introductions include the 5ws.. Who is taking part in the event? What event is it? When is the event taking place? Where is the event taking place? Why should the audience be interested in this?

You join us at the Aquatic Centre, London, with the world’s finest ‘High Diving Giraffes.’ Have they got it in them to win Olympic gold this year? We watch with bated breath…

Remember to use Year 5 Grammatical features

-Variety of sentence openers

-Relative and subordinate clauses

- Paragraphs for a change in time and location.

Behind the scenes, the acrobatic, agile giraffes are stretching in preparation for today’s epic 5 metre dive. Quite understandably, standing at such elevated heights makes these towering animals nervous. I’ll tell you something with great certainty: it’s not for everybody. With the hopes of a win this year, the aerialist giraffe is carefully moved into place. Let’s hope the apparatus is strong enough to hold these heavy beasts in place.

Edit your writing from yesterday. You could write it up as a sports report and include some pictures and even quotes from the participants!

Letter to your future self

Write a letter to yourself reflecting on year 5 and looking forward to year 6. Write about what you would like to achieve, what you are good at and any worries you might have. Keep these for your return to school in September.

 

Picture of a memorable moment.

Some ideas might be Cindy’s wedding, Christmas production, trips, PE lessons, science experiments, cooking etc.

Draw a picture of a stand out memory from year 5. Try to include what you were doing in the picture. This link to help you draw people in action might help.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gwj0PNrSvlY

Self portrait

Take a picture of yourself or ask a family member to take one. It should be just of your face if possible. Print it out and then cut the picture straight down the middle. Stick your ‘half a head’ onto some plain paper and then try to draw the missing half as accurately as possible.

Please send the results to mstone@stbarnabas.eu and we’ll see if they can be tweeted!

Virtual sports day

  • How far can you jump from a standing start?
  • How many burpees can you do in 3 minutes? (chest has to touch the floor)
  • Make a mark on an outside wall with a chalk by reaching up as high as you can without going onto your tip toes. Now jump as high as you can to make a mark on the wall. What is the distance between the marks? (This will be the amount of spring you have from standing!)

Practice as many times as you like and send me your best scores and I’ll let you know who achieved the year group records!

Target setting

Set yourself some manageable targets for the summer holidays that you know you can achieve with a bit of effort. Eg. I’ll make sure I learn 20 more year 5/6 spellings ready for the spelling competition in September. Or I’ll read for 15 minutes 5 days a week. Or I’ll learn one times table with instant recall that I didn’t previously know.

Watch Wing and note down some phrases about his appearance e.g.

“He has one wing.” Once you have a collection of simple phrases improve them by expanding the noun phrase and adding in detail through adverbial/preposition phrases. E.g. “Sprouting from his right shoulder, he has a feathery, white wing.”  See if you can also expand to a sentence that includes an expanded noun phrase and a relative clause?

Wing

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkHrcePAW40

How does the writer make us feel sympathy for Wing? How can we tell when he is afraid? This is called emotive language. If the clip were a book, you would not physically see Wing’s reactions, so the writer would need to express his feelings through words. In order for a reader to sympathise with how a character feels, the writer must use certain words and phrases to convey this. Look at image of Wing at 0:35. How is he feeling? Write down adjectives. How can you tell? Can you use intensifiers to enhance description- such as terribly, extremely? Can you write a sentence using emotive language to sum up? Do the same for Wing at 1:51, 2:09, 3:15, 3:36 and 4:08. Can they identify the emotion and give a range of synonyms?

Speech is completely absent in the film. Who are the characters in the film and at what points might they talk to one another? Focus on the extract 0:30-0:47. What is happening? If the characters spoke, what might they say to each other? for example the Crows might ask the boy what he is doing there.

Work on these to come up with more detailed sentences e.g. “The tarnished frames of my glasses are taped together at the corner, balancing precariously on the bridge of my nose.” Imagine you are Esther trying to describe herself to somebody who has not seen the video- include as much detail as possible.

 Road’s End

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQN-KvFvTJg&t=8s

Focus on the character “Red Scarf”- who could he be? Why/ How did he do it? We are going to write a character description for Red Scarf. Make some notes on physical appearance using precise vocabulary in expanded noun phrases. Think about how preposition phrases would help the reader to understand where things are. Also think about his character/personality. We have to infer this from the clip so your personal opinions will be different.

Write your character profile. It shouldn’t be a list but the information should be carefully woven together and flow naturally for the reader.

Road’s End

Today we are going to focus on the driver of the car who stopped to help. What position did the man find himself in? Did he do the right thing (remember that he didn’t know how it would end!)? What would you have done? Write the thoughts of the driver, detailing what was running through his mind. How would he have felt? How could they show emotion in their writing to convey feelings to the reader (Show not tell)?

Oh no, of all the days for this pesky air conditioning to stop working…the hottest day of the year so far! Just my luck, isn’t it? I’m surrounded by desert, on the longest winding road in the county, with nothing but the sun beating down onto this metal cage on wheels. Great. Hang on… what’s that just ahead? It looks like… is it a person?

Today they are going to tell the story of Road’s End from the perspective of Red Scarf. Write in present tense and first person. Make sure the personality of Red Scarf comes through the writing. Can you give some clues about his motivation?

I pick myself up, dust myself down and straighten my appearance. On the ground in front of me, the car wheel turns, dust and sand blow upwards in the breeze and I reach down to grip the tyre of the upturned vehicle and stop it from moving. Good. In the distance, I hear the thrum of an engine approaching, and within seconds another vehicle rounds the corner. I extend my thumb: a gesture I know that will be hard to ignore. The car slows. Good.
