Topic - Road trip USA
Novel Study - The boy who grew Dragons
Buckle up, sunglasses on. We’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A. Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard home to ask the question ‘Do you wish you were here?’ Learn how to send an email to book a day trip or reserve a room. Make sure you ask the important questions ‘Does your hotel have a pool? Is there 24-hour room service?’ Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions. Then plan a bespoke road trip for Mr Smith and his family of four. They want to spend three weeks in the sunshine. It’s going to be a long ride. Put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair. We’re off.

Novel study - The Boy Who Grew Dragons

 

We grow dragons and I can tell you this-they are a lot more trouble than cucumbers!

They will poo in your dad’s porridge!

They will chase your cat!

They will set fire to your toothbrush!

However, I can tell you something else. Their bright diamond eyes twinkle up at you. Their warm breath tickles your ear. And you ‘d better keep them a secret, because wouldn’t want their own dragon?

 

We will use our novel to inspire our writing. We will write a present tense description of the chaos in their bedroom after our own dragon hatches. We will create our own dragon to write an information report about. We will use paragraphs, headings and sub-headings to organise our non-chronological report. We will also write a letter of apology to Grandad, in character as Tomas.

 

 

In our SPaG lessons and in our written work, we will practice using different verb tenses: past, present and future. We will start to use a comma after a fronted adverbial or a prepositional phrase.

In our non-chronological report, we will use both formal language and informal language. We will use specific/technical vocabulary to add detail: e.g. Siamese cats are a variety that can live to a great age. The species has many unusual features for a feline.

We will practice pluralising and spelling nouns ending in “-f”, “-ff” or “-fe” and extend our vocabulary through exploring synonyms.
