Common Factors

Guided Reading


Jane feels guilty about working for another spy network without checking that Milo and Alicia can be trusted. Jane writes an email to be sent to her mother automatically if she goes
missing. Write Jane’s email. Write about the robot, the Technophobes and Alicia Forrest. See below.



In today’s lesson, you are going to use the words and phrases that you had generated yesterday to help write either a postcard or diary entry. The subject matter will be Greece. Your aim is to use as many different examples of figurative language.

Firstly, go through the slides and have a go at the grammar warm ups and then practise writing a range of sentences which include different types of figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification, etc). I have included a model and success criteria to help you. Remember that this lesson will be over two days so please do not rush.



Practice your aiming, throwing and catching using a tennis ball, bean bag, scrunched up piece of paper or a similar item! Can you catch with your right hand/ left hand?

Why not further challenge yourself and have a go at the Joe Wick’s Workout. See below for the 8 minute active challenge 🙂
