LO: To know how to write a summary.
Before writing a summary of the 2nd chapter I would like you to refresh your memories. To do this you are going to be reading through the 2nd chapter independently. Pages 19-31 have been inserted below.
Do you remember what a summary is?
A summary is a short statement or paragraph of the main points.
In our case, this means a short paragraph of the main events in the first chapter.
Here are a few main points:
- Hogarth spotted two green lights in the distance (Iron Man's eyes) and watched a huge dark figure climb over the cliff-top.
- The Iron Man had eaten all of the farmers machinery.
- Hogarth's father and the other farmers dug a huge hole to trap the Iron Man.
To find the 3 bullet points above, I re-read through the first few pages of the second chapter (19-25) and picked out the main points - things I thought were important to remember.
Add 3 bullet points onto the 3 above stating the key points over the next few pages (26-31). When you have finished your 6 bullet points, please can you write a short paragraph about these 6 points. This will be your summary of the second chapter.
