Today you need to write your ending of Chapter 1. 

Before you begin, look back over the planning you did on Tuesday! Remind yourself about the ending you chose.  Some of you may have recorded yourselves, listen back to this too!  

As you are writing, make sure you look back at your planning otherwise you might repeat yourself or miss key parts of your story out!  


For this Chapter I would like you to focus on the 4 key areas in the table below. It may also be worth reminding yourself of the writing target you were set by your class teacher in your report given to you at parents evening. 


In my writing I will include:


Fronted adverbials  


Conjunctions to extend sentences  


Expanded noun phrases  (adjective + noun + preposition)  


Dramatic sentences (short sentences)  



To help you with your success criteria, you could ask a parent or sibling to read your writing with you!

1315 - St. George's Day

Happy St. George's Day! If you know what I mean, then well done because apparently only one out of every five people know that St. George's Day is celebrated on 23rd April each year. One quarter of people don't know he is the patron saint of England. Lots of countries have patron saints. Perhaps you could find out what a patron saint is.


Step 1: Read St. George's Story. There is a country mentioned in the story. Try to find it on a map.


Step 2:  Create your own comic strip of the story of St. George



There is a very famous painting called'St George and the Dragon'by Paolo Uccello (1470) which is currently in the National Gallery, London. In normal, safe times, you will be able to visit the gallery to look at the painting for yourself. It's remarkable and almost 600 years old.



Look carefully. What can you see? What colours have been used? Can you explain to someone else what is happening in the painting? What surprises you about the painting?


Choose  your own way to recreate this masterpiece. Here are some ideas:


Draw it

Paint it

Freeze frame it

Build it
