Today we will be writing an apology letter to the three bears from Goldilocks.

As we will be writing from the perspective of Goldilocks you will need to imagine her experience in the three bear’s house and how she felt throughout the day.

Three Bear's Cottage

Thursday 2nd April 2020

 

 Dear Three Bears,

 

I am writing to say how sorry I am for my actions.

Last week as I was walking through the woods I stumbled across your lovely cottage. I was so tired and hungry that I thought I could sneak in for a quick rest and bite to eat. I went inside and noticed that no one was home, so I ate your porridge, sat in your chairs and slept in your beds. I know now that this was wrong. You should never break into someone’s home. I feel incredibly embarrassed by my behaviour. I am so sorry; it will never happen again.

I hope you will accept my apology and we can be friends.

 

Yours Sincerely,

 

Goldilocks

 

Goldilocks Letter Checklist

  1. Include a date and an address
  2. Start with Dear
  3. Begin your first sentence with ‘I am writing to say…’
  4. Explain what you did and how you feel.
  5. End with Yours Sincerely or From.

Today in English we will continue learning about the Goldilocks and the three bears. We will be filling in speech bubbles of what the characters might say to each other. In the first speech bubble imagine you are the Bears. What would you say to Goldilocks after coming home to find that she’s been in your house? Try to infer the bear’s emotions in your writing. In the second speech bubble, imagine you are Goldilocks. What would you say back to the bears? How does she feel? Tomorrow you will be writing a letter from the perspective of Goldilocks. This activity will help you imagine what the characters are thinking and feeling in preparation for tomorrow’s activity. Don't forget to drag the correct picture form the image box and place it under the correct speech bubble! The Think About box contains useful tips and reminders for each activity on Purple Mash. Use this to support you.

Recap what happens in Goldilocks and the Three bears by watching the video link or telling someone in your house the main points of the story.

You can listen to the story on this link:

 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0oUP2PFeOi8

 

Today on Purple Mash we will be creating a wanted poster for Goldilocks.

A wanted poster usually starts with the word wanted in capital letters. It is then followed by a description of the person’s crime and appearance. Today in your wanted poster write a brief summary of what Goldilocks did in the three bears house. Then describe what she looks like so people can find her. Feel free to draw a picture of Goldilocks by double clicking the picture box or dragging a a pre-made picture into the space. 

 

Example:

 

WANTED

A young girl named Goldilocks was spotted earlier this week breaking into the three bear’s cottage. This intruder not only broke into their home but ate their porridge, sat in their chairs and even slept in their beds! Police are trying to find this girl. She has long, blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a red dress skipping through the woods.

Good morning!  

You are all doing a fantastic job with your home learning, keep it up!

Just a quick reminder that Joe Wicks is doing a PE lesson every morning at 9am. The link to this is on our home learning page. Additionally, on this page is the link to Mr Mc’s phonics channel. He is introducing a sound a day and is definitely worth a watch!

English:

(The children have used the 2Create a Story activity before so should be familiar with this)

 

Using the ideas from the plan you did yesterday; write an e-book story about your Smed and Smoo.  Add pictures using the felt tip pen tools. You can animate your pictures using the animation button which looks like a person moving. The text box at the bottom of the page is for you to add the sentences from your story. If you would like to add a new page in your e-book click on the purple arrow. When you have done save and hand-in your work for marking.

 

A good example is as follows:

 

Page 1: One day on a faraway planet lived a young Scup called Penelope.

Page 2: Not far away, on a marshmallow hill lived a young Blap by the name of Jack.

Page 3: Penelope and Jack lived under the fiery red sky of Planet Slop. Where the lakes are like orange jelly and the spaghetti trees wobble in the warm breeze.

Page 4: The Grandfather Scup and the Grandmother Blap would tell their grandchildren not to play with each other because they were different. That didn’t stop Penelope and Jack…

Page 5: Penelope and Jack sneaked away in the middle of the night and boarded a shiny, fast rocket. Soon the Grandparents were in pursuit to bring them back home.

 

And so on…

Tomorrow you will be writing your Smed and Smoo story. So today I would like you to plan some of the key things that will happen in your story including a beginning, middle and end. Double click in the picture boxes to add a picture to each part of your plan. Double click in the text boxes to add some simple sentences.

In the beginning of Julia Donaldson’s book the Smoos and Smeds were separated and were not allowed to play with each other. In the middle, Janet and Bill got onto a rocket and flew away so they could be together and the Grandparents tried to find them. In the end, they returned to their planet to find Janet and Bill and their new baby.

 

What will happen in your story?

Today, I would like you to design your own fantasy setting for the Smoos and Smeds you designed yesterday. This is in your Purple Mash 2Dos saved as ‘2Paint’. Use the background tool and the felt tip pen tools to create your own Trockles (trees), Glompoms (flowers), Humplety Hill and Lobular Lake.  

 

You can remind yourself of the original story by clicking the link below:

Once you have created your fantasy setting picture write a postcard about your planet. This is on your Purple Mash 2Dos saved as ‘Setting Description’.

What does it look like? What can you smell? What can you hear? What grows there? Remember to use lots of adjectives.

 

WAGOLL: Dear Mum, I am on Planet Zoople. I can see stars twinkling over the bright red sky. Entire trees made of spaghetti wobble in the wind. Sweet-smelling marshmallow flowers grow tall in the purple grass. From...

Good morning, please see below today's lesson outlines. 

 

Maths:

 

In maths we have been looking at fractions. Class 2 can now find a half, a third and a quarter of shapes and numbers. They have also looked at non-unit fractions such as 2 quarters and three quarters. Today, practice drawing shapes and splitting them equally into the fractions you have learnt about. You could also find a fraction of an amount using the one for me and one for you method. 

 

On Purple Mash you will see in your 2Dos a game called Fractonio's Pizza. Help Fractonio make the pizza for his customers with the correct fraction of ingredients. 

 

English: 

 

In English we have been learning about books with Fantasy Settings. Last week we read The Smeds and the Smoos by Julia Donaldson. You can find videos of someone reading this book on YouTube if you would like to remind yourself of the story. This week we will be writing our own version of this book, creating our own alien creatures and fantasy settings. Today, I would like you to design a new alien creature using the ‘My Monster’ activity on Purple mash. Then I would like you to complete the 'My Smed or Smoo Character description' writing activity on Purple Mash to tell me what your Smed or Smoo look like. Use the key words to help you.
