Good morning Year 6!
I hope you have all been enjoying reading The Ickabog. Ms. Iqbal has worked hard to create new reading and writing activities based on the exciting new book by J.K. Rowling which I am sure has been a nice change from the regular activities.
Today, the Year 6 teachers and TLAs are in school preparing our classes for Monday, when some of you will be returning to school. We are really excited to welcome some of you back and can't wait to see your smiling faces and give you a socially distant air-hug on Monday morning.
If you are not returning on Monday, don't worry! We will still be uploading daily home learning to this website and you can still contact your teachers using our email address or via Seesaw.
Have a wonderful day! :)
'The Ickabog'-JK Rowling
Chapter 6- 'The Fight in the Courtyard'
Use the internet/dictionary to find the definitions of the following words before you start reading the text. Write the definitions down in your homework book so that you can refer to them when you are reading.
Read Chapter 6-'The Fight in the Courtyard ' from JK Rowling's (author of the Harry Potter series) new book- The Ickabog-https://www.theickabog.com/read-the-story/ (make sure that you take into account the punctuation when reading)
Why was seeing King Fred wave, the most exciting thing for the children?
When would the children fall silent in the courtyard?
What did Lords Spittleworth and Flapoon, think of the children? Why?
Why does the author emphasise that the daughter of the new Head Seamtress is wearing a beautiful dress of rose-pink brocade?
How do we know that Daisy is angry with King Fred?
Explain what is meant by 'the colour rising in her face.'(example of show not tell)
What evidence is there that Bert is embarrassed by Daisy's outburst?
Read the paragraph 'It was the word ‘silly’ that did it' Why does Daisy feel so angry?
What does the author mean when she says '...and everything became death and elbows?' (example of show not tell)
What was Lord Spittleworth's plan?
The text states,
'But as he turned away, a broad smirk spread over Lord Spittleworth’s face. He was a man who knew how to turn a situation to good use, and he thought he might have found a way to banish children – or some of them, anyway – from the palace courtyard'.
Write a detailed paragraph explaining Lord Spittleworth's plan. What do you already know about Lord Spittleworth? Is he jealous of King Fred, devious or cunning? What kind of character is he? What might he do next? Think about the steps he might take to ensure that
the children are banished from the courtyard. Would King Fred have to agree to the plan?
Don't forget to use the range of y6 punctuation in your response. ! , : ; ? ( ) " ". In your paragraph use different types of sentences, simple; compound and complex.
By now you should be proof-reading and editing your work throughout the writing process and one final time when you have finished. Before you post your work onto seesaw, underline one example of each type of sentence and circle one example of each of the different types of punctuation that you have used.
