Wednesday:

Can you spot any prepositions in the opening of the story?

A preposition is a word that shows the relationship between one thing and another.

It may tell you where a thing is in relation to something else. E.g. The silver, shining giant stood on the car.

It may tell you when something is in relation to another event. E.g. The crowd watched until the giant departed.

Write 3 sentences with prepositions that will go into your story.

Challenge: write these sentences as a paragraph that will be part of your story.

 

Thursday:

Start writing the story from the end of the opening paragraph. Include your description of the visitor and your sentences with prepositions, edit when finished.

 

Friday:

VE Day occurred on the 8th May, 1945. It was a chance to celebrate the return of peace to Europe after the 6 years of war.

Today, we still mark VE Day but use it to remember those men and women who valiantly fought to bring about peace.

Research a veteran – a person who is an ex-member of the armed forces – and create a fact file about them. Captain Tom is a veteran who has had a very eventful year, not only has he reached his 100th birthday but he has also raised over £30 million for the NHS through his sponsored walk. You could research into his life as a soldier, alternatively you could find out about a family member that might have served during the Second World War.

Apart from their name and age when they enlisted, include details of the force they worked in, where they were stationed, and in particular, any significant memories of VE Day they had.
