Summer Term: English Unit - 4/5/20 Planning

Summer Term: English Unit - Narrative Planning 4/5/20 - Your version of 'The Dementor's Kiss'

Instructions for 4/5/20

Advice before you start today's lesson: You may want to familiarise yourself with the main events of 'The Dementor's Kiss' by:

* Re-reading the WAGOLL;

* Watching the video clip from Tuesday 28/4/20's English blog entry again  AND watch 'The Dementor's Kiss' vocabulary clip on Year 5/6 Highfields YouTube page (this is new);

* Reading your storyboard work from 28/4/20 (or look at the examples from Banyan that I have published on the English blog entries on 28/4).


Now you are ready to start planning.

Written task: You are going to plan your version of 'The Dementor's Kiss'.

By 'your version', this can mean a complete rewrite of what actually happens in the text OR you can change some events BUT try to keep the characters the same.

Open the attachment at the bottom of the page and use the grid to help you to organise your ideas. You must include all the key vocabulary.

Here is an example of a plan produced today by K in Banyan Class.

Well done!


And here is an example of A's detailed plan for the next chapter in The Dementor's Kiss
