Sequel to the clocktower

This week in school, children have written a prequel to the short video clip- The Clocktower. 

For homework please can pupils write a sequel to the video to explain how the perpetual dancer is released from her spell. Video is on YouTube if needed.

Please try to remember to make your writing of a high standard including: fronted adverbials, description and speech. Year 3 and 5 will also be looking at these…

Poetry… 

This week has been world book day and as a part of that we have been learning about fair trade and have had a visit from Don Conlon, published author. 

He discussed with us various poems he has written and the children greatly enjoyed his presentation. 

Please, for homework, can children write a poem based on Dom’s poem ‘New Gold’, changing  the second lines of each verse to things they would like aliens to know about our earth… 

Dom will then look at these and give feedback. 

Here is his poem: 

New Gold

In 1977 two spacecraft were launched on an endless mission into the cosmos. They each carried a gold disc upon which was stored information about Earth in the hope that should any alien life see it they would know they are not alone. This poem imagines a new disc being created. A disc for us.
Our message is not written

in gold to be collected by aliens
It is written

in autumn leaves for children to scatter
Our message is not written

in gold to die in the cosmos
It is written

in honey for bees to be born
Our message is not written

in gold to be fought over by men
It is written

in daffodils for friends to make peace
Our message is not written

in gold to be seen by nobody
It is written

in the vocal chords for everyone to hear
Our message is not written

in gold to be aimed at by asteroids
It is written

in sand for the oceans to reach
Our message is not written

in gold to be lost in space
It is written

in candlelight for the lost to be found
Our message is not written

in gold to be forgotten by history
It is written

in rings to be remembered
Our message is not written

in gold to be swallowed by infinity
It is written

in summer rain for the thirsty to drink
Our message is not written

in gold for spaceships to carry
It is written

in the sunrise for life
for life
for life
for life

to carry on

Book review… 

Please leave below a review of one of your favourite books.

Children can then explore a range of books that are appropriate for their age by reading the reviews of their peers. 

Thanks,
