Reading Task

Writing Task

Watch this short film:

Stop the film at 30 seconds. Write a description of the setting that you see. If you can’t access the film, here is a screenshot:

Success Criteria:

Use powerful adverbs and adjectives to describe. Can you use hyphens to describe the buildings? Example: Jenga-like towers? Use short sentences to show tension (you could even use one-word sentences or paragraphs, like we’ve done in class). Can you use the weather to show the mood?

Remember, you can use to help you up-level your vocabulary!

Pause the film again at 5.20. Can you write another description of the action you just watched? Here’s my example:

The lone biker swerved, skidded and came to a halt. Anxiously, he turned to look behind him. On the ground were the two contraptions that had been sent to attack him. His plan had worked. The cylindrical robots lay motionless on the ground a few metres away; their red and orange lights had now dimmed to black. Who made these monstrosities? Why were they attacking him? He took a deep breath. Relieved and satisfied, he had defeated the drones, for now.

His mind couldn’t forget what he saw. That micro chip… what did it mean? Could it be his ticket out of here? He needed to return to explore but how could he risk running that kind of gauntlet again? Isolation. Frustration. Anger. His emotions surrounded him… but he knew he had to fight on. He turned the key in the ignition of his bike… IT was waiting for him. IT had found him.

Science Task

Use the fact cards below to research our solar system and present what you know! You could write some paragraphs, create some graphs, draw some diagrams, create a powerpoint presentation or a short film (I know some of you have been enjoying making some stop-play animations). Remember, you can use the Swiggle search engine for child-appropriate information:

    Right respecting task: I think that everyone should respect each others religion ; it would be better for humans because religion keeps you from doing bad actions such as drinking alcohol, smoking and wars. I also think that people with religons should make fun of people with no religion because no human on the earth is allowed to control what skin color we have or what religon we are. Presidents and prime ministers have a lot of power and they can do what ever they want yet they treat us all equality.

  6. Affan

    I think the place looks like an ancient abandoned Spanish place from around the time of the 1500s. There is a lot in there yet to be discovered so it looks very intriguing.
