Row 1

Lesson 1

LI: To read and then sequence a story.

Read and enjoy the Hamilton Group Reader, No Thank You!

There is a copy of the story on the home learning hub and a video of Miss Ashe reading the story too.

Activity

Carefully cut out all the Animal Picture Cards and Food Picture Cards from the story that are in your pack.

Match each animal to the strange, muddled-up food that it was given by Bobo or Muna in the story.

Lay out your matched pairs of cards so that the animals go in the right story order.

Writing Task

Lesson 2

LI: To collect descriptive language to describe characters from the story.

It’s reading time!

Re-read No Thank You!  

Each time you reach the line, ‘No thank you!’, say the words in an appropriate voice – rather cross, very firm, puzzled, maybe a bit upset.

Activity

Look at the picture of the lion on Animal Describing Words.

What great words could we use to describe the lion?

Some ideas: golden, big, scary, fierce, sleepy, shaggy, etc.

Record some of these words in the boxes below the lion. Now do the same thing for the snake, the pelican and the bat.

Task

Read and cut out each of the words on the first line of In a Muddle sheet that is in your pack.

Re-order the words so that you have made a proper sentence.

Remember – the full stop must be at the end of the sentence. The sentence will begin with a capital letter.

Write the sentences in the correct order on the paper provided in your pack.

Lesson 3

LI: To plan a story

Today you are planning a new version of the story we have been reading ‘No thank you’.

You can plan the story with the original animals and foods or you might want to include new animals and foods.

Use the Story Planner to record which three animals will be in your story, which funny foods they will be given and what they will say.

Include a really good describing word or words for each animal and each food on your Planner: e.g. enormous dog and juicy green lettuce.

Lesson 4

LI: To write a story

Using your plans from the previous lesson today you will be writing your story on the lined paper in your pack

Remember to;

Write in punctuated sentences with capital letter and full stops at the end of each sentence.    

Put an exclamation mark instead of a full stop after No thank you!

Explain why the animals went with Bob and Muna in the end.

Lesson 5

LI: Create a cover for your story

Think about all the animals that appear in your story.

Create a front cover for the story that you have written.

You can read your own stories to help you remember what animals that you need to include.
