Week 7 - 13/7/20 - 17/7/20



Lesson 1:

Lines of symmetry

LO – To be able to show how a character is feeling

Watch the troll scene from The Philosopher’s Stone -

When watching make a note of the different emotions that the characters might be feeling at different points throughout this scene.

Also read chapter 10.

Using stills from the clip (RESOURCE1)– chn will write ‘show not tell’ phrases so that the reader can understand how the character is feeling, without using the word for the emotions that you originally thought of.


For each picture ask: How is the character feeling? Show me feeling that way? How could you describe the actions of the character to show their feeling without saying how they are actually feeling?


Example of ‘show not tell for ‘crying’:

Her eyes filled with water and as she blinked tears came tumbling down her cheeks. 

Lesson 2

Children are going to create their own ‘Guide to Dragons’. This will be a fictional piece of writing about dragons.

Questions for discussion:

Where is it from?

  • Why is it so small?
  • Where does he live?
  • What does it eat?
  • What kind of dragon is it?
  • Is it magic?  What magic can it do?


Children to make notes about each of these questions.
