# Lesson video

In progress...

Hello super storytellers and welcome to this English lesson.

My name is Miss Cashin and this is lesson 5 of unit 3.

So far, we have learned how to defeat the horrific fire giants.

And today we're going to learn about a new set of instructions.

We're going to learn how to defeat the Frost Giants.

We're going to read those instructions and then we're going to summarise the most important parts of those instructions.

Now, I remember that to defeat the Frost Giants oh, sorry, to defeat the Fire Giants, we needed freezing cold water.

So I wonder, how are we going to defeat the frost giants? I can't wait to find out.

So let's have a look at what we're doing in this lesson.

We're going to start off with a spelling activity.

So we're going to do a strategy check, then we're going to read some parts of our instructions together and then we're going to summarise our key points in those instructions.

This is what you're going to need for today's lesson.

You need an exercise book or some paper.

You need something to write with, so a pen or a pencil.

And of course, you need your brilliant brain.

If you need to go get any of those things, hopefully you already have your brain You can pause the video and go and get them now.

Well done super storytellers! You are all ready for our learning.

In lesson 1 and lesson 3 of this unit, we have been looking at common exception words.

These are words we use ALL the time.

They're really really common.

So we need to be able to spell them properly.

But they're exception words, they don't always follow the rules of our sounds, or our spelling rules.

See, sometimes we just have to know them.

We are going to see if we can write down some of these words independently, and then I will show you the correct spelling, and you can see whether you spelled it right or not.

So let's have a look at our first one.

Pr, pr It's the common exception word "pretty".

Can you pause the video and see if you can write down the common exception word "pretty".

Well done super spellers, let's see if you spelled it right.

There it is! P-R-E-T-T-Y So it looks like it says "pretty" but it actually says "pretty" You can pause the video again and check your spelling to see if you got it right, if you want to give yourself a big tick, or if you made a mistake, write down the correct way to spell it.

Well done super spellers.

Let's go onto our next common exception word.

Oo it ends in an "er" sound.

I remember! It's father.

See if you can pause the video and write down the word "father".

Well done super spellers.

Let's have a look at how you would spell the word "father".

There it is! F-A-T-H-E-R Father.

You can now pause the video again, check your spelling and if you make a mistake write it down correctly so you won't make the same mistake next time.

Made a mistake saying "mistake" there! So see if you can pause the video and do that.

You are doing so fantastically today, well done! Let's have a look at our next one.

Oo-tiful.

It's the common exception word "beautiful" Now look at the star, there are 1, 2, 3, 4 letters to fill in before beautif - before the tiful in beautiful.

So you think about all the letters that make the "beau" sound.

So pause the video and see if you can write down the word "beautiful" Well done super spellers, let's have a look There it is! Do you remember my rhyme from lessons 1 and 3? B-E-A-UTIFUL.

So you have B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L You can pause the video now and check your spelling of "beautiful".

Well done super spellers! We have really warmed up our brains there for the rest of our learning.

So now we're going to check our reading strategy.

When we read, we need to look with our magnet eyes, so that you're following along as I read, and then looking so that you can read independently as well.

We need to listen with our listening ears and then, when we summarise, we need to go through and think "what are the most important pieces of information here?" What are the most important bits? So we need to look and find them.

And then I've got some different reading challenges for you when we do our summarising.

So let's have a look at our first bit of reading.

We're going to read together and then we're going to summarise.

Here is the introduction to my instructions about how to defeat the ice giants.

Magnet eyes on the first word, "introduction" [Reads Screen Aloud] Well done super readers.

I am going to read that one more time and you can join in, if you would like to.

Magnet eyes on the first word "introduction" Here we go.

[Reads Screen Aloud] I bet the frost giant can be dangerous but I'm sure they look amazing as well.

Here is my first summarising challenge.

Can you summarise this introduction in 5 words? There are lots and lots of words in the introduction, but I want to know what are the most important parts? Can you sum it up in 5 words in a sentence? So you could have, I am a, or I like, or A giant Those are some ways that you could start it off.

So pause the video, read it again, and let's see if you can write down your summarising sentence with only 5 words.

So pause the video and see if you can go and do that.

Well done super summarizers! It's really tricky doing some of those reading challenges.

Here is my sentence with only 5 words.

I love to defeat giants.

I thought that was the most important part of that instruction.

I.

Love.

To.

Defeat.

Giants.

I thought that that told me exactly what the instruction was about.

Can you read me your sentence? [Gasps] Some of you have the same sentence as me! I heard some learners say "Frost giants are very dangerous." I heard somebody else say "Giants are very, very bad" We're going to read together, so I'll read first, and then I'll read it again and you can join in.

So, magnet eyes on the first word, "equipment".

I'm going to read it again see if you can join in.

Magnet eyes on the first word, "equipment" [Reads Screen Aloud] Brilliant listening superstars.

Here's my summarising challenge.

Can you summarise what you need by adding 2 words to this sentence? So I have listed there lots of things that we need in quite a lot of detail.

For example, I said that the ice cream needs to be delicious.

Can you summarise what we need by adding 2 words to this sentence: "You need ___ and ___" ? So see if you can summarise the most important parts of what you need to defeat the frost giants.

So pause the video and then press play when you're done.

All right super summarizers, I'm going to show you my summarising sentence.

There it is, "You need fire and ice." Because I thought there were two things that we needed for fire, the twigs and the matches and two things that we needed for ice the ice cubes and the ice cream.

So I thought those were the most important things.

You need fire and ice.

Can you read me your sentence? Soo many amazing sentences from amazing learners.

I heard some people say the same sentence as me, I heard somebody say "You need frost and heat." So instead of ice they said frost.

Instead of fire they said heat.

So they summarised it in a different way.

Let's get ready for our reading again, so get your magnet eyes on the first word, "instructions" Here we go.

[Reads Screen Aloud] Fantastic listening! I'm going to read it again and you can see if you can join in this time, here we go.

[Reads Screen Aloud] I wonder, can you summarise each instruction by creating one action for each part? So for the first instruction, you can't show me everything in that sentence.

You can only do one action.

So you need to choose what is the most important part you're going to do an action for.

Number 2, there are different parts to that You can only show me one action.

And the last one as well, I've got some description of the ice cream, I'm telling you where to put the ice cream, but you can only choose one action.

So see if you can summarise each bit by using your body with actions.

Pause the video and then press play when you're done.

I would love to know what actions you had.

I found it really, really useful actually to look for the imperative verbs they were actually the most important part of each instruction.

So for the first one, I thought the most important word was "skate" so I did skating.

Can you show me your action for the first one? So many amazing actions! Okay for the second one, again I thought the imperative verb was the most important bit which was "sneak" Can you show me your action for the second one? So many fantastic, fantastic actions.

All right, for the last one again I thought the imperative verb was the most important bit which was "place".

So I'm going to place it down.

Can you show me your action for the last instruction? Even more amazing actions.

We have done such fantastic summarising already.

Get your magnet eyes ready for the next bit of our instructions.

Magnet eyes on the first word, "quickly" [Reads Screen Aloud] So you trick the frost giant in the same way that we tricked the fire giant.

We've laid out all those ice cubes that it loves to eat.

And so it finds the ice cream.

I wonder what we are going to do when we get to the ice cream.

Let's read that again, magnet eyes so you can join in with me if you would like to.

[Reads Screen Aloud] Okay, I have highlighted here the fifth instruction.

Can you summarise this instruction in no more than four words? We've got another four word summarising challenge.

Pause the video to see if you can find the most important bit in those instructions and then press play when you've done that.

Well done super summarizers.

Here is the sentence that I wrote.

Knock and maybe run.

I thought the most important part of that instruction was that you knock on the door, but you will need to run if the ice giant sees you.

So knock and maybe run.

Can you read me your sentence? [Gasps] So many amazing sentences from our amazing learners.

I heard some children say the same as me, I heard some learners say "Knock and perhaps run" or "Knock and then run" or "Knock on the door" Okay superstars, we are going to read our last part of our instructions to find out how we defeat the frost giants.

So, we've skated up to the ice castle.

We have laid a trail of ice cubes all the way to the ice cream, it's about 10 metres away.

And then we have knocked on the door to get their attention.

But when they come to the door we have to hide so they don't see you, but they do see the ice cubes and they start eating them.

So let's see what's going to happen now.

Magnet eyes on the first word "when" [Reads Screen Aloud] [Gasps] So that's how we get rid of the frost giants.

We're going to wait until they're sat down eating some ice cream and they're so distracted that we can just light a fire and they will slowly melt away.

It's quite sad for the frost giants, but we have to remember that they are quite dangerous.

Magnet eyes, here we go.

[Reads Screen Aloud] Oh dear, all right we have a challenge here.

Which adjective do you think best completes the sentence? Here's the sentence To catch a frost giant you must be So here we're summarising all of the instructions.

What do YOU think you have to be like as a person to carry out these instructions? What do you think the most important thing is? Here are the adjectives, so Patient, careful, brave, intelligent, strong.

So which of those do you think would complete the sentence, "To catch a Frost Giant you must be ___" Pause the video and have a careful think about which one YOU think is the best one and why.

Well done super summarizers! Can you tell me what you thought? SO MANY different ideas from all different learners.

So I think that lots of these words could have been the words that we needed.

Some of you said "To catch a Frost Giant you must be patient" because you have to wait a long time and you have to make sure that you only lay the ice cubes, and you only light the fire at the right time.

Some of you said "careful" because there are so many points where it could all go wrong, if you're not careful enough.

Some of you said "brave" because you thought, "well if you're going near the Frost Giant you've got to be brave in the first place or you're just not even going to get to the castle." Some of you said "intelligent" because you need to follow the instructions really carefully.

Some of you said "strong" because of the amount of things that you will need to carry.

So there were lots of different ideas there.
