Transcript of Year 7 Transition

Welcome to the Island...
The Scenario…
You’ve been shipwrecked on an island for two months now and you’ve realised that you are probably not going to be rescued.
So, you decide to make the best of things and create your own country…
In your groups you need to brainstorm what kind of island you have been stranded upon and what features it has in order to make a poster.

Have a look at this video clip to see if it gives you any ideas…
The Scenario…
Think about:
What is the geography of your island?
What is the weather like?
What sort of animals and plants live on your island?
What kind of food and water is available on your island?
Does it have any unique qualities?
Are you completely alone on the island?
The Scenario...
You’ve been shipwrecked on an island for two months now and you’ve realised that you are probably not going to be rescued.
So, you decide to make the best of things and create your own country…
Think about:
How you will present your island.
Give each member of your tribe a specific area of your island to talk about- e.g. one person talks about weather, the next wildlife etc. EVERYone must have something to say.
How the people on the island also make it a great place.
Any unique aspect of your island
Task: You should now have a completed poster and be ready to present your poster to the rest of the class.
May the best island win…!
Island Poster
Task: Design a poster about your island (be prepared to present it to the rest of the class!)
I love this island!
L.O. To be able to use powerful adjectives to create a vivid and descriptive crash scene.
Crash Survivors...
Watch these two film clips about accidents at sea and come up with as many adjectives as you can to describe the events of the scene and how they make you feel...
Pimp my adjectives...
Now use a thesaurus to find five new POWERFUL adjectives to replace five of the adjectives you already have.
For example, ‘scary’ may become ‘terrifying’.
What can you SEE
What can you HEAR
What can you FEEL
What can you SMELL
What can you TASTE
Descriptive Writing
Pick one of the scenarios that you came up with in the starter
Use some of the adjectives that you got from the film clips
Write your own crash scene that led to you being stranded on your island.
Remember to concentrate on making it as descriptive as possible and only describe the moment when catastrophe struck.
L.O: To create our own desert island poster and present it to the class.
Need some ideas?
How many different ways can you think of that may lead to you being stranded on a desert island?
(extra points for creativity!)
eg. a shipwreck
1. Now swap with a partner and see if you can underline all the adjectives that they have used.
2. Write down 2 things you really liked about their work
3. Write down 1 thing you think they could do to make it even better!
L.O: To gather the necessary knowledge to create a survival guide for your island.
Imagine you find yourself lost and isolated in the wild. In what order do you think you should you prioritise the following essentials:
food, water, shelter, fire, first aid and signals
The order may vary depending on your environment, What order should they go in if you are in the following scenarios:
The desert
The arctic
The jungle
The mountains
How well do you think you could survive in the wild?
During this lesson you will be learning the necessary skills to help you survive. These will then be put to the test to see who can pass…

Welcome to the Island.
Before watching fill in whether you agree or disagree with the statements on your anticipation guide.
Now watch the following clip for his top tips on how to find water, food, shelter and fire…
Bear Grylls is a British survival expert who gets dropped into inhospitable places to show viewers how to survive.
You need to be aware of how to find the essentials for survival on your island.
These are:
rescue signals
avoiding danger
There are 4 bases set up around the room.
Each person from your island group is going to be assigned a base and 15 mins to become an expert in that area to feed back to the rest of the tribe.
You have crib sheets to help you but remember that it is your island, so you are able to make the rules (within reason!). But you must stick to the design of your island that you created in your poster.
Island Experts
You now need to take it in turns within your group to feed back what you have learnt.
Everyone should now have a full crib sheet of information. Except for the Dangers section…
This section you will need to decide as a group, as any dangers on your island will have been decided or designed by you when you created your island.
Island Experts
Do you have what it takes?
Feeling Hungry?
What is the success criteria for successful instructions?
L.O: To create a criteria list for good instructions to use in our survival guide.

With the person next to you, label yourselves A and B
A will be given an image and B will have a pen and a piece of paper.
A must now describe how to draw the image to B who must try and draw it as accurately as possible
The catch is that you will be back to back and B must not be able to see the picture.
A should not just tell B what the image is- you are marked on accuracy!
Describe and Draw
Pair and Share:
What was good about your instructions?
What was not good about your instructions?
What could have made them better?
Now you are kitted out with the survival knowledge for your island and have learnt the criteria for a successful leaflet, you are ready to write your own!

Remember you leaflet needs a section on at least 3 of the basics in detail- try for all 6 if you can:
You should use your success checklist to make sure your leaflet is well written and well presented.


Tell me one thing you have learnt this lesson....
Now it's time to battle The Jabberwocky
in performance...
OH NO! You have been wondering around your island when suddenly a monster appears! What do you call this monster? How will you describe it to others?
A Monster on the
"It seems very pretty," she said when she had finished it, "but it's rather hard to understand!" (You see she didn't like to confess even to herself, that she couldn't make it out at all.) "Somehow it seems to fill my head with ideas--only I don't exactly know what they are! However, somebody killed something: that's clear, at any rate---" (Alice- Through the Looking Glass.)
Task 1: In your books create a bubble map of all the words that you think are nonsense.
Task 2: Choose 3 and create a dictionary definition for them (what do you think they mean?)
The Jabberwocky
But how do we create a good performance?
- a dishonest politician, especially a shrewd or calculating one
- an unwell feeling, especially a headache; a moody depression;
the estimation of something as worthless - 29 letters
a supposed lung disease - 45 letters
Sorry -I made this one up! What do you think it could mean?
the creation of a new word
a word created by blending one or two words together
Neologism: the creation of a new word
Portmanteau (or Blend): the creation of a new word by blending one or more words together (e.g. brunch= breakfast and lunch)
Task: Draw a monster that represents these 2 key terms.
What would a neologism look like?!
1. What is the name of the poem, who wrote it and what it is about?
2. How did you decided to read your part of the poem and why? (include all of your ideas about voice and movement here)
3. How did you feel the final performance went, and how you might have improved it?
Are these real words?
L.O.: To explore where words come from and to perform The Jabberwocky.
