Read the fable The Hare and the Tortoise. Think about the morale of the story.
Watch this sports interview conducted by Kermit – click on the link below
. A sports interview is where a reporter interviews a sports person before and after a race. What sort of things do you think a sports reporter might ask?
Think about some questions you might ask the Hare and the Tortoise before the race. Once you have come up with some questions for the Hare and the Tortoise, chose to be either the hare or the tortoise. Write the responses they might give to the questions you’ve come up with.
Look at the introduction about fronted adverbials for when, where and how and look at how the comma is used to separate a fronted adverbial from the rest of the sentence.
Follow the link below for some information about fronted adverbials we will be using these in our writing about the Hare and the |Tortoise (we will not be writing a diary entry – just use the warm up activities on the video to learn about fronted adverbials)
Read ‘The Hare and the Tortoise’ again and try to identify any fronted adverbials for time/when and the use of commas.
Use the plot of the hare and the tortoise to write your own fable, based on different characters who have a race. Think of a range of animals with opposite character traits e.g. bee and worm, cheetah and elephant, squirrel and hedgehog. Think about the traits of these animals and research further, if necessary. E.g. What do they do? Where do they live?
Start creating a description of one animal. Now choose two animals with different traits (e.g. one is fast and the other is slow). Write a description of each, focusing on what they do, where they live.
