LO - I can make simple links between promises in the story of Noah and promises that Christians make at a wedding ceremony.

Start by making a list of people who have to make promises e.g Doctors, Police, parents at a christening, brownies and other people who you can list. Then think/discuss/write about what types of promises they make and why?

Now watch this video of a Christian Wedding.

What promises are made?

English - Lesson 1 

Image result for literacy shed shirt machine

Watch the clip 

The Shirt Machine - YouTube

What parts did the inventor have for his machine?

What were they called?

Can you make names up for those machine parts?

Main Activity - 

Draw plans of the shirt machine and label the different parts.

Please make names up for the different parts e.g

Wishswisher

The bassmet flow

Tell me where you found the different parts for your machine.

English - Lesson 2

Watch the  video - 

The Shirt Machine - YouTube

Brainstorm

What is the job of each part?

Does it sew buttons on?

Does it cut the fabric?

Does it sew the seams?

Main activity -

Using your plan of your shirt machine from yesterday,  write at the side under subheadings what each part does.

For example;

The Wishswisher-

This wish bone shaped part sews on buttons to fasten the shirt up at the front. When you type in the shape of the button e.g hearts, then heart shaped buttons will be placed on the front of the shirt.

 

End result should be the plans of your shirt machine labelled and an explanation of what each part does.

Remember to edit like we would in school.

 Take a picture of your work and send to Class Dojo.

To help you understand how to write some instructions I have included a power point on the link below

Instruction writing power point

Then using  the word map below to help you with your instruction starters and imperative verbs

Word map 

Begin to write your own instructions for your shirt machine.

Remember you can use your own imperative words and instruction starters too.

 

English- Lesson 5

Today, you are continuing from yesterday and  completing your 'Shirt Machine' instructions 

Remember to use the editing skills we have used in class. 

Does it make sense?

Have I used the correct vocabulary?

Is my punctuation correct, capital letters and full stops?

Have I used the correct features of an instruction text?

Check using the power points in yesterday's column.

Please make sure your work is;

  • neat. I am looking for beautiful handwriting as some children forget, show your adults at home how beautiful your handwriting can be.
  • you have everything included from the instructions checklist
  • that it makes sense when you read it.

Ask your adult to then send it to class dojo as soon as you complete it! So I can read it during Friday afternoon and then I can comment on it.

Really looking forward to receiving your instructions:)
