We have been reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone at school. If possible, encourage your child to continue to read this book.
Most letters in HP world are delivered by owl but some are more welcome than others. Think of characters who they think deserve a howler?
This week they should
Write a howler!
Write a howler to a character in Harry Potter. They could write it from themselves or write in the role of another character, (e.g. one from the Dursleys to Dumbledore for leaving them with Harry (Hard); Dumbledore to Hagrid for using magic on Dudley; McGonagall to Vernon for destroying her letters, etc.)
Write a howler to one of the Dursleys on mistreatment of Harry.
We have also been doing some work on a short video clip - Titanium. Watch the clip HERE then have a go at these activities:
1. Write in role of the boy, use his emotions through the story to gain an understanding of his feelings and whether he comprehends what is happening.
2. If you could have a superpower what would it be?
You wake up one morning to find you have incredible strength, what do you do? How would your life change?
Design you own superhero, what powers, costume, name would he have?
3. Write a newspaper report of the events from the video, interview the teacher, parents and policemen.
If you manage to have a go at any of the above activities take a photo and post on SEESAW.
