Learning, Caring and Achieving Together

Week Beginning 11.01.21

For this English unit, we will be exploring some non fiction writing using a talk for writing unit. At the end of the unit you will be writing a non chronological report about a type of elf or sprite. Now these are mythological creatures, so the content of the writing is made up but the features and structure of the writing is non fiction so we can call it 'faction'. 



Read the example text 'Cave elves'. Click on the audio link to hear it read aloud by the author.


You have 2 activities today.

Activity 1 - Vocabulary check. Match the definition to the correct word and then check your answers

Activity 2- Draw  and label a Cave Elf using the information from the text.



There are 3 activities today. You will need to re-read or listen to the text again. 

There is also another text to listen to before completing Activity 3.  

Aim to spend no more than 15 minutes on Activity 1 before moving on to Activity 2 and 3.


There are 3 activities to complete today. Please go through the power point first and then have a go at the activities.  If you are finding that you are running out of time, give yourself 15-20 minutes per activity to help maintain your focus.
