English: An alien's explorer's log: Zargon 9
Now design Zargon 10. Label the map to show what is on this planet. You can use some ideas from Zargon 9 to help you.
- What would you be able to see as you hover over it in a space ship?
- What special features will it have?
Try to draw it in the style of this map but make it look much more like an alien planet! Have fun!
Map of Zargon 9
Your alien explorer's log
Now imagine you have explored Zargon 10 and are ready to write your log.
Use your map to help you.
Before you write your log, try practising some sentences that will help you to add detail about what you are doing. We are going touse and and but to add detail. For example:
1. I visited the crystal waterfalls and took samples of the flowing purple liquid.
2. They looked rather like earth spiders but had 12 legs and tiny horns on their heads.
‘When’ or ‘How’ please
The log uses sentence signposts to tell the reader when or how something is happening. The ones used in the log are called ‘fronted adverbials’ adverbs (or phrases beginning with adverbs) that are placed at the front of sentences.
When: first, Next, After that, Then, Afterwards, When I got in, W hen I got up.
How: Carefully, Excitedly, Slowly, Without stopping, Quickly, Bravely, Greedily,
1. Next, I took measurements of wind speed
2. Carefully, I scooped up two of them to take back to the ship
Try to include these in writing you alien log. I'm looking forward to reading them. Remember to include your maps.
Music: Year 4 cornets
This is your second cornet lesson.
You will find the first lesson in last Friday's folder (week 4), so make sure you do lesson 1 before you do this one.
Remember, if you can still listen and follow if you don't have your cornet.
