White Rose Problem of the Day

Writing

 

Story Starter

Despite being an incredibly brave, strong, life–saving phenomenon, even Superman had problems. He still loved his job; he still loved saving lives. Today he had already prevented many catastrophes, flying after a jumbo jet full of passengers that had been plummeting towards the earth at tremendous speed. Just before lunch, Superman had swooped in front of a moving truck to save a lost kitten. However, now…Superman needed help. He picked up his phone and began to dial… 

Can you continue the story? What could his problem be? Who might he be calling for help?

Challenge: Can you use parenthesis in your sentences?

e.g. His cape (which was glossy and red) was bulletproof.

If you want to complete your short story on 2write on PurpleMash, Mr Brown and Miss Beeden will be able to see them. Alternatively, if you want to share, you could upload your writing to the class blog! Or, write on paper and we'll read them next time we see you! It is up to you!

Powers of 10 include: 10 ... 100 ... 1000 ... 10,000.

 

Look carefully at each digits place value and think about the one that will change and which will stay the same.

 

For example:

Counting in steps of 100

2263... 2363... 2463... 2563... 2663...

Writing

Story Starter

Toby poked his large, shaggy head out of his front door and sniffed. He loved the smell of the forest, especially first thing in the morning. He could almost taste the fresh, leafy goodness on his slobbering tongue as he dangled it out of his yawning mouth.

He could hear a rustling noise coming from nearby; one of the others was awake. You see, Toby wasn’t the only dog that lived in the forest…

 

Can you continue the story? Perhaps introduce a new character!

Challenge: Can you use relative clauses in your sentences?

From behind the trees, an ominous figure, who was moving closer, approached Toby.

Writing

Story Starter

She gritted her teeth and began the climb.

With her vulnerable young perched precariously on her back as she ascended the branch, the extra weight caused her paws to tremble, and her sensitive whiskers to twitch at the strain.

Now that their nest had gone, and storm clouds gathering overhead, she was desperate to find a new location to begin building again. It was their only chance…

Can you continue the story of the possums as they strive to find a new home?

Challenge: Can you use adjectives and adverbs effectively in your short story?

eg. Cautiously, the exhausted possum clambered up the branch.

Magic

Story starter!

He held them with his mind. He controlled them.

The chairs swirled around him, dancing as if held by invisible strings. He practised on chairs, however his powers allowed him to manipulate things far more complex than that…

Can you write a story about the man who can perform magic?

Sentence challenge!

Which ending would make this word an adverb?

smart

smarter smartie smartest smartly smartier

Can you use adverbs in your writing today?

Perhaps you could use adverbs to show the possibility of something happening e.g. perhaps, surely, possibly, maybe.

Perhaps she would find other people soon.

Question time!

Why do you think the man practices his magic using chairs?

What other magic do you think the man possesses?

Why do you think he is in a field?

What do you think his home is like?

If you could perform magic, what power/ability would you most like to have?

White Rose Problem of the Day Answers

  1. There are 15 red apples
  2. 14 litres of juice in 7 cartons

 

  1. 3/8 = 72 so 1/8 = 24  (72 ÷ 3 = 24). To calculate 5/8, multiply 24 by 5. There are 120 fiction books.
  2. 1 litre = 1000 ml. 1000ml + 750ml = 1750ml. 1750 ÷ 6 (as I have 6 glasses) = 291r4 = 291 4/6 = 291 2/3

 

Writing

Do you think the children in the picture find the journey to school difficult?

What do you think their school is like? How might it be similar/different to yours?

Who are the adults in the picture? What do you think they are carrying?

Where in the world do you think the children are from?

How do you think these children would react to spending a day at your school? How would you react to spending a day at theirs?

Story starter!

6AM: I left the house on my own, wrapped up in my warmest coat (which I wear every day) to make the 3km trip. I met up with other children from my village, and we huddled together beneath the mountain to keep warm, waiting for the last couple of stragglers to arrive. As soon as we were all together, two of the dads put their sledges and emergency packs on their backs, and we set off for school…

Can you write a diary entry for one of these children, describing their journey to school?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of what you think their school might look like? Think about how it might be different to yours.
