  • What your time has been like at home


I'll start:


During my time at home, I was quite hesitant to venture outdoors for exercise, lacking confidence in order to keep my body healthy and strong. As time went by, I have built a tolerance to staying indoors. I have spent superb time with my well-behaved dog, who is fairly obedient, however lacks independence. 


Mr Ross has also included:

2 fronted adverbials (During my time at home,) (As time went by,)

Running Wild


Back at school, we were reading 'Running Wild'. This was about a boy who had lost his father to war and thinks he has now lost his mother in a devastating tsunami that he has just watched hit the hotel. Will, because of his love for elephants, was luckily having an elephant when the tsunami hit. The reason he was not affected by the tsunami was because the elephant sensed danger, so ran towards the jungle. Soon after, the tsunami hit...


Will had been surviving for weeks on end on top of the elephant, too afraid to go down towards the ground. When he finally gained the courage to get down from the elephant, he searched in desperate need for food and water, as the water from his bottle had ran out.


After some time, Will was getting tired of Oona as she could not help him and Oona was okay eating leaves and trees. This gave Will no choice but to go it alone... this is where the story left off. 



Kerges means... Yes of course, Greeks!


Instead of having a driving question for this topic, I want you to explore Ancient Greece as a whole and see what it was like.



Find where Greece is on a map.

Which 4 countries boarder Greece?


Main Activity 


Make a travel brochure about Ancient Greece Where would you travel to? Where would you stay? What could you do while you were there? Who would you recommend to visit? Use pictures with lots of facts and information.


This will help you to understand what it was like in Ancient Greece, collecting information and showing what you have found. 




Can you extend your vocabulary and find out the meaning of these words?
