Goal: To explore a text

Warm up:

What do you need at the start of a sentence?

What do you need at the end of a sentence?

What can we do to make sure our sentence makes sense?

Draw and fill in the grid about the text.



(What do you like about the text?)


(What do you dislike about the text?)

Lesson 2

Goal: To make a toolkit for instructions

Warm up:

When do we use instructions?


Read the model text again (How to get to Starshine City)

Use the video on the website to help you to find the features of the text.

If you do not have access to the video, look at the toolkit on the word document and find an example of the feature in the text and write it down.

Lesson 3

Goal: To use imperative verbs

Warm up:

What was in the instructions toolkit?


Imperative verbs are verbs which tell you what to do. They are often at the beginning of a sentence.

For example

Eat your fruit. Write the date.

Write a sentence with these imperative verbs in

  • Fly
  • Support
  • Make
  • Climb
  • Listen
  • Play
  • Switch
  • Drink
  • Run
  • Buy

For example: Make a paper aeroplane

Lesson 4

Task 2: Can you change these sentences into imperative sentences? Write the imperative sentences in your home learning book.

Please could you go and brush your teeth- Go and brush your teeth.

Could you put your shirts back into your wardrobe?

Would you mind peeling an orange for your baby sister?

Perhaps you could go outside and play football.

Do you think you could finish your maths homework?

Task 3: Now change these sentences so that they are not imperative sentences.

Go and stand in the corner.

This week we are going to be looking at an extract called 'Practising the piano'. Have a go at finding word class, answering questions and continuing the story. 

Lesson 1 - Reading for pleasure

Spend some time today reading a book of your choice. You can choose to read to a family member or your pet if you wish. 

There are lots of book on the Epic Reading website and lots of comics too if you like those. I will have a look on the teacher account on what kind of books you have been looking at. 


Lesson 2 - Reading aloud.

Have a go at reading the extract 'Practising the piano'. Read it inside your head first and check any tricky words with an adult or using a dictionary. 

Now try reading it aloud. Think about how Megan is feeling. Can you show these feelings in your voice?



Lesson 3 - Answering questions

Re-read the text to remind you what happens then have a go at answering these questions about the text.

Don't forget to answer your questions in full sentences.

Lesson 4 - Predict the story

Re-read the text again. 

What do you think is going to happen next?

Continue the story of what happens to Megan. Use the questions below to help you.

Is Megan ever going to practice the piano?

Is Megan going to keep finding other stuff to do all day?

What happens if she doesn't practice the piano?

Is Megan going to get into trouble?


Lesson 5 - To make connections with the text.

Have you ever put something off like Megan?

What did you do instead of doing as you were told?

Write about a time where you put something off. You may use your imagination to write about a time if you have not experienced this.
