(Stories taken from Fables from Africa, collected by Jan Knappert)

Discussion

  • What is the moral in each of these stories? What is the lesson that we can learn from each tale?
  • How can we apply this lesson to our own lives?
  • Suggest a different ending for one of the stories. Tell the rest of the class.

ACTIVITY 2

TO READ FOR PLEASURE NON-FICTION AT AN APPROPRIATE READING AND LEVEL

[LO 3.6.1]

It takes practice to read fluently.

When you were very small and just learning to ride your bike, it took time andendless practice before you could ride with confidence.Reading is no different. You will need to practise your piece over and over again,making sure you know how to pronounce challenging words and even know theirmeanings, before you can read confidently and fluently.

TASK:

Prepare a piece of reading of your own choiceto read to the class and to your teacher.Choose some interesting dialogue in an interesting passageand practise using different voices.

ACTIVITY 3

TO UNDERSTAND SOME ELEMENTS OF POETRY:

RHYME; WORDS BEGINNING WITH THE SAME SOUND; IMITATION OF

SOUNDS [LO 3.2.1; 3.2.2; 3.2.3]

TO WRITE CREATIVELY [LO 4.3.3]

Some people believe that poems need to be learnt or that you have to read them seriously … but poems can be fun, too!

Do you still remember this nursery rhyme?

Can you sing it?

SING A SONG OF SIXPENCE

Sing a song of sixpence,

A pocket full of rye;

Four and twenty blackbirds,

Baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened,

The birds began to sing;

Was that not a dainty dish,

To put before the King?

(Taken from Traditional Nursery Rhymes , Brown Wells and Jacobs, 1985)

Points to ponder:

Which words rhyme with each other?

Are there words in the same line, or lines which follow each other, starting with the same sound?

Who would read this poem with enjoyment (the target audience)?

How many other poems about flying creatures can you find? bring them along to class so that we can enjoy them together. read your poem as well as you can – with expression!

Glue your example here or write it out neatly.

Acrostic poems

Now, try to write your own poem!

Choose a word. Write the letters vertically on your page. Write a word next to each letter, describing your topic. Look at the example.

R oaring Try this one
O ut to space W
C arrot-shaped I
K ickstarted N
E verlasting darkness G
T o discover ! S

And this one:

V
U
L
T
U
R
E

Now try some of your own. Choose any of the following:

astronaut ; balloon ; butterfly ; owl ; eagle ; train (or any other).

(1) (2)

I enjoyed this task. Why?

I did not enjoy this task. Why not?

ACTIVITY 4

TO RESPECT OTHER LEARNERS, GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO SPEAK AND ENCOURAGE THEIR ATTEMPT SO SPEAK THEIR ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE [LO 1.5.1; 1.5.2]

TO ASK AND ANSWER QUESTIONS IN THE ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE

[LO 2.1.1]

TO EXPRESS AN OPINION AND GIVE A REASON FOR IT [LO 2.1.3]

Help !

I’m in desperate need of a change of scenery … !

Where to go … ?

Obtain a few brochures from your local travel agent. Study these brochures in your groups and discuss the following.

  1. What does the brochure look like? How have they used lettering, colour and layout to attract the reader’s attention?
  2. Who is their target reader? Think about the person’s age, interests, income, etc. How do you know (from studying the brochure) who they are hoping to attract to this venue or resort?
  3. What kind of language do they use in their brochure? Formal? Informal? Why?
  4. What is the purpose of this brochure? What is the purpose of the information they are supplying to the reader?
  5. In your opinion, what makes this place appealing to you? Why would you want to go and holiday there?
  6. Choose someone in your group to give feedback to the rest of the class.
