Week beginning 11th October

This week we will continue our text 'Romans on the Rampage'. 


Today we are developing our inference skills, looking at feelings at different events of the story and plotting these on an axis of emotion graph. Task 1 is to read the events and note down feelings using clues in the text and Task 2 is to then plot these feelings on a graph. 


Today we are going to explain why we chose each emotion yesterday for each event. We are going to give our reasons for plotting each event on the graph using the PEE technique. 

P- Point (make a point)

E- Evidence (find evidence to back it up)

E- Explanation (explain how the evidence proves your point)


Please use today's session to read some books on Bug Club and/or your own reading book. Make sure to write a comment in your reading record and discuss with your grown up what you have been reading. They could ask you questions to test your understanding! 


Today you are going to be reading some more of Romans on the Rampage ready to generate questions tomorrow about what you have read to show your understanding. 


Today you will be using chapter 5 from yesterday to generate some different types of comprehension questions. You get to be the teacher and come up with the questions yourself! First, reread chapter 5 to jog your memory. Next, complete the task sheet, coming up with your own questions based on chapter 5- remember to give the answers too. The types of questions are explained below to help you. 


Literal questions: These are questions where the answer is literally there and you can point to it or underline it. These are also called retrieval questions They are the easiest sort of comprehension questions to answer.

For example: What colour is... How many...  What   When did....


Inference questions: These are questions where you have to use clues to infer something (work something out), so if a text said 'the dried up leaves were swirling around on the ground' then I could infer it must be around Autumn time because otherwise the leaves would be green and on the trees! For example: Why do you think... How can you tell... How do you know... 


Choice questions: These are questions about why the author made certain choices about words or phrases or the way the text is set out. For example: 'Explain why the author chose the word... or 'Find 3 words which show that... or Why did the author choose to include....
