Week 2

English

Monday

Show children the short film Peter Pan while reading .the subtitles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDM499ppEWk

Ask children to build a picture in their minds of Neverland – a wonderful and fantastical place, with forests and a river, amazing beasts and a lagoon where mermaids play! Some may have seen film versions and others may need encouraging to listen to descriptions of the setting and to use their imaginations. Together, design a poster advertising Neverland as a holiday destination. Show children examples of holiday brochures or look at examples of travel posters to help them choose their style and headings.

Tuesday

Watch the video of a holiday advert below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoWqrrvNG3U

As a speaking and listening activity, ask children to produce a travel piece for this holiday, ‘selling’ Neverland as a holiday destination to someone– in the style of a holiday presenter! Encourage this through demonstration, and encourage them to use their imaginations. Make sure that they fully describe this magical place as their listeners cannot see it and they need to know what it is like! Swap groups and do it the other way around.

Wednesday

Get children to think about all the different characters in Peter Pan, and ask each child to create a ‘profile’ of one chosen character, as if producing a passport for this character. What do they look like? How do they dress? Do they have a smell? Any strange habits or traits?

Thursday

Imagine children are about to travel to Neverland. Ask them to individually write a ‘kit list’ of things that they will need to pack, for example, real food, a dagger to fight off the pirates, a fairy lingo dictionary so they can understand Tinker Bell – and so on! Imagination is key to this activity, so encourage them to be as imaginative as possible. As they prepare their lists, ask them to use commas, headings, emboldened words etc.

Friday

Once in Neverland, they will want to send postcards home to their families. Once they have decided what it is like there, ask them to write a postcard based on their thoughts and experiences, imagining themselves in this mystical setting, and using the correct punctuation (capital letters, commas, full stops etc.) in their writing. Before the children do this individually, demonstrate how to start a postcard, e.g. “Dear…”
