Owl Class Home learning 9.6.20

Good morning Owls – I hope all is well with you and your families.  All is fine in the Hollis household although I am now banned from accents by Freya and Rowan!  And they don’t laugh at my jokes.  Apparently, they are too cheesy.  Can you brielieve it?  Anyway, down to work…

1)Spellings – using this week’s spellings, perhaps you could have a game of hangman with someone at home or complete the word search attached for your year group.

Extra activity for today and tomorrow – Freya and Rowan are very keen on drawing and recently, they have been drawing their own comic book based on one of Rowan’s favourite books at the moment: Dogman by Dav Pilkey.  They have borrowed some of the original characters, added their own and begun writing adventures in the same style.  So it got me thinking that maybe you would like to have a go at something similar.  You don’t have to do the same as Freya and Rowan but you could base your comic book on you and your family, the characters in your reading book or just have fun making up your own weird and wonderful characters.  You could even connect it to our Ancient Greek topic and set your comic book in the past.  There are lots of ‘how to draw cartoon’ tutorials online that you could search for to help with the drawing side of things if you need it.  Once you have designed your characters, can you write a short comic book story using them?  Think about how comic book authors get across a character’s personality, use speech, sound effects and develop the plot.  If you don’t fancy making up a whole story, you could use your characters in a poster perhaps to advertise a new book or to explain how something is done.   As always, I would love to see what you have come up with.

Enjoy your day and take care,

Mrs Hollis x
