Eagles Class Pre-Learning and SAT's Revision Page
Welcome to the Eagles Pre-Learning page. This page will have lots of useful videos and other resources that will support your learning and SAT's revision in the classroom.
What is Pre-learning?
Pre-learning is a very useful way of learning at home before the lesson in school. This will mean that you will arrive at the lesson with lots of knowledge already and will have a clear idea of what you know already and what you will need to focus on in the lesson. It is important to look at the pre-learning resource carefully, taking good notes or putting together a text map that you can then bring into school the next day. If you do your pre-learning well, it will give you confidence and also a clear idea of what you need to learn back in school.
Eagles Homework 15th October 2021: Tell me your story Jim
Below is the audio for the first part of our Street Child story that you need to complete this week's homework.
Once you have listened, choose one of the tasks below:
Rewrite a shortened version of the prologue from Barnie’s point of view. Think about how you will include Jim’s actions and words as described in the original text. What would Barnie be thinking and feeling during this moment?
Here’s how you might start:
It took him a while to tell me his name; it seemed that he didn’t want to give it away to me. I reassured him by saying, ‘My name is Barnie’ and finally he told me that his name was Jim. He did not say much more after that, he just sat by the cracking fire and devoured the food I had given him. My heart filled with sadness as I look upon him; it was obvious that he had been through some very tough times – he was so thin and he had that expression on his face that told me he did not trust many people. I sighed – this poor street child is just one of so many that I see every day. I break the silence in the room as I ask him, ‘Jim, tell me your story’.
Using the key ideas, words and phrases from the prologue, write a list poem. A list poem is exactly what the name suggests; it a poem made up of a list of words and phrases. Often the title says what the list is about. It does not necessarily need to include rhythm or rhyme, but each word should be carefully chosen and memorable. The best list poems have between 1 and 5 words per line. How will you show the emotion of the scene in your poem? Try and aim for between 10 – 15 lines and remember you can repeat lines for effect.
Here’s an example:
Just me and ‘im
My name given away
Retelling my story
Ain’t much of a story!
Hot food and proper clothes
A warm fire
Shadows dancing remind me
I hear a voice
Don’t leave me Ma!
I love you.
