Here are some important things to remember:

Reading

To identify features in a blurb.

 

 

Find a fiction (story) book in your home and look at the back cover (if you don’t have a book you can use, try looking one up on Amazon or Google Images).

 

The text on the back of the book that tells you about the story is called the blurb. The back of the book might also show quotes from book reviews.

 

Read the text and look at the vocabulary that is used. Make lists of the adjectives, verbs and adverbs. What do you notice about them?

How does the blurb make you want to read the book? What about the quotes? 

 

Can you spot any SPaG features?

  • Read the text twice to make sure you understand.
  • You can use Collins Dictionary Online to look up any words you don’t know.
  • Think about whether the words are mostly positive or negative. How do they make you feel? Do they use ‘everyday’ words or ‘wow!’ words?

Writing

To write the blurb for a story.

Think of a story you have read and enjoyed. It could be a story you have read at home, or one you have read as part of your home learning (e.g. one of the Ananse stories), or it could be a story you know very well (such as a well-known fairytale, or the plot of a film).

 

Thinking about the things you noticed when you were looking at a blurb for the reading task, have a go at writing a blurb for this story.

 

Share your blurb on the blog and see if your friends can tell which story it is for!

  • Try to include all the features you noticed in the other blurb – and maybe some others as well!
  • Collins Dictionary Online also has a thesaurus to help you up-level your vocabulary choices.
  • Remember you can ‘magpie’ vocab from the example you looked at as well!

Spelling

To spell words from an age-appropriate text.

Straight, strange, strength, suppose, surprise

 

Complete the bitesize activity – splitting up the words into sections (don’t worry about colouring – just put a dash between parts,
